    Pano probs

    Im trying to stitch a six shot pano from Hopkins fall in full fliight earlier in the year, The first three shots are all shot at the same ISO but the second 3 are higher. Does anybody have any advice for fixing the second half before I stitch both halves together?


    Cheers Dan

    What do you need to fix? Is it just exposure or noise?

    Hey, Dan.
    I had a look at the image in Adobe CS2. At the exposure levels posted here it is just noticeable, but then I thought you hadn't finished adjusting levels, so I did some "finalising" tonal changes then went to work on the more noticeable discrepancies in exposure. The two areas I worked on were the clouds and the foamy water just left of centre. Here are the steps, and the result is below. Hope it helps, but it demonstrates the need for constant exposure across the whole scene. Am.
    Steps in Adobe CS2-
    Shad/Highs: 50, 25; 50, 50 only
    Burn tool: Brush 65, Highs 20%, 1 pass over brightest clouds; Midtones 10%, 2 passed over same area.
    Dodge tool: Brush 65, Highs 10%, couple of passes over the duller foamy water; Desaturate tool, 10% a few passes over same.

    (Gee, I hope it looks the same after I post it.)

    Thanks Ameerat
    Looks much better Ill give it a try later.
    I just noticed that in my post I said it was the left side I was having trouble with, Its actually more the right side(One to many Coopers last night me thinks). All I had done levels wise was bump up the gamma slightly on the left to bring it in line with the right side, this however has resulted in the trees and grass in the last right hand third being over saturated when compared with the the other two thirds.

    Cheers Dan
