Yes... the Olympics again.   

21 vertical frames - Had to reduce all by almost half so my PC could even process the stitch. All good fun.    Also, was not quite level so cropped more than I wanted to getting it level in LR - need to work on that, maybe buy something to help out there. These stitched pretty good - not always the case I am finding on water shots. A few dust bunnies I still need to get rid of. Will swap out photo when I have time. Off to bed now.

A99ii with 300/2.8 + 1.4X TC

Opens quite large for detail hunting.

This one is for you Neil!   

Best regards

Mike

edit: I think maybe I should not have locked focus. It seems sharpest in the center, and that is the area I focused on.... further away seems a little out. Live and learn. ;)

I don't fully understand your sharpness comments, looking at the full size the rigs on the far left (as well as the chimney of the ship just behind the horizon there) seem pin sharp.
Mind the bandwidth of others, don't link pictures larger then 1024 wide or 960 pix high, see here

I was looking at mountain details... to the far right {more distant} there is some softness. I think maybe depth of field did not quite extend that far - anything closer is great. :) Or... it just may be the visibility. Its a long way off. hehe

Thanks!

Stitching together 21 vertical shots is certainly a feat - and the result is impressive!

Mike, if you want to go on using tele lenses for large panoramas you definitely should give the "Brenizer Method" a try - see here and at many other places on the net. To shoot between 30 and 70 images with a tele is normal to produce a kind of wide angle portrait (kids can leave after four shots sitting still) - just a suggestion.

Do you use a gimbal and some leveling device?

TFS!

Excellent. Thanks for the view.

What was your stitching method?

I've always wondered how to print/display these. Sure, easy to get the long roll printed. But how to display on wall if final size is larger than available mounting/framing? I envision them rolling down curvy walls, or bending at hallway corner. Looking for commercial interior display solutions.

I will definitely read up on it! I am NOT using a leveling device - and I need to. A cheap gimbal and a decent tripod were used here but I was not quite perfectly level and so ended up having to crop more from top and bottom than I wanted. BUT... it stitched great, so I am happy. Just need to get level. hehe

Thanks Harald!

Thanks for stopping in Clyde! I am just learning and experimenting with these. I use LR6 for stitching panos. I have yet to print one - not quite good enough yet! And yes... quite a challenge displaying! Intriguing ideas you have for commercial use.

Today... I really blew it. Did not leave enough time to bring out the tripod. Sky was epic. Should have brought out my 80-200 that I had in the Van. My hand held stitches did not perfectly match at the waterline. But I was running late for work.

Here is what I salvaged.

6 frames, stitched in LR6. 300/2.8 + A99ii

Cheers all!

Wow - glad I'm not on Hurricane Ridge for that one!

That is one very dominating weather system and I really like the way you've converted it to B&W here - that 'black heart' really dominates the scene.

Thanks for sharing this Mike and best regards, Neil.
