Title: Big Pano from London
Post by: Paul on July 14, 2008, 11:22:02 pm
Just back from a long weekend in England - spent Saturday in London - I lived there for 18 years but now I'm a tourist!

Took this 5-shot panorama from what is now called New Hungerford Bridge (Downstream) which opened in 2002. This file is 450kB and needs to be opened in a Web Browser then enlarged to full size and panned across. Not great weather, but look at the dark clouds over the City!

Enjoy!

Excellent pano Paul, and I also liked the cumlus clouds gathering over the city. Hope you had a great time.

Fantastic shot Paul!
Which software do you use for stitching?

Thanks Stevie,

That was stitched with a cheapie piece of software called Serif Panorama Plus 2, and as you can see it works well. Its downside is that it's totally automatic - it either works or not and if it refuses to stitch images it's not possible to give it a "helping hand". I have Photoshop Elements 5 which has the Panomerge tool, but the joins are obvious - hence my interest in the tool you're using as that did a seamless job too!

Great shot Paul of some familiar buildings. See they are doing some work on the needle!
