General location: Australia, South-East Queensland
The Setup:This is my first experiment with Hugin to generate a panorama. The image is made up of 12 source images. I originally shot this as a 9-bracketed exposure HDR as well but that didn't work out so well. Definitely will try the HDR panorama on something else next time.
The camera & lens:Camera: Canon EOS 400D DIGITAL
Lens: Canon EF-S 15-85mm f/3.5-5.6 USM IS @ 15mm
Exposure: 1/800" @ f/8, ISO 400 (12 images (Manual mode, to ensure same exposure throughout the whole panorama))
- Load all images, press combine. This took about 30-45 minutes to process, with no manual adjustments required.
- Spot Adjustment - over the whole image excluding the blues of the sky: exposure +0.5 stops, clarity +75.
The wash-up:I would have included another six images pointing downward, to include more of the fence in front.
I also made the rookie mistake of leaving image stabiliser on. It is useless for tripod, and can make things worse.
I originally wanted to do an HDR panorama, but that is not as easy! Hugin took >24 hours and still had not completed. I gave up. There are a few other options for an HDR panorama which I'll try later on.
