Default {PIC} Playing with Autopano and PTGui

Got to the lake just as the sun was setting, this is an 8 picture pano
using Autopano.
I tried it with PTGui but couldn't get the opposite shoreline straight
and PTG was putting a stright line through the rippled down the bottom
below the buoy.

It's rather pointless posting to ever group on the net. All you are
doing is attracting the attention of Chinese spammers. And what on
God's earth made you think you'd get more coverage? Do you want to be
lumped in with those Idiot American's who cross post just to make
trouble or gain attention and instead act as magnets for the chinese
spammers? Just look at how the ruined their own groups. The messages
are being cross posted here. Time to stop this stupid practice before
there's only you and the trolls left, mate.

You have a contribution to make, that for sure. Why not just do it in
Aus Photo where it belongs and avoid getting killfiled for cross
posting to more than 3 groups?


you have piqued my curiosity Douggie, how is crossposting "attracting the
attention of Chinese spammers"
what specifically causes a cross post to attract their attention ??
I would have thought that they just download a list of available news groups
and then set their little script to spam the lot, far cheaper (even at the
average slave labour rates the Chinese pay) than having someone looking for
cross posts and flagging them for "immediate Attention"


Do you realise who you are trying to get logic out of?

I love his "You have a contribution to make, that for sure" did he even
look at the picture? This guy just posts the same HDR crap over and over.
HDR doesn't below in a photography newsgroup. HDR is art not photography

How do you figure that? HDR is purely and simply a way of
trying to overcome the dynamic range limitations of digital
cameras. It's still photography, it just relies on a little
more post-production than in-camera jpeg. HDR is just the
modern equivalent of dodging and burning in the darkroom.

Hey Fr - nice work, although I do think it wants a foreground
element.. maybe a little row-boat..? Don't you keep one in your bag?

I'm about to get into panoramas more over the next 6 months - i can
feel it in my lenses.. And I really want to get the hang of them
'stepped out' ones, just like the great man has demonstrated... (O:

In PTGui, did you find the straightening thingies, (I think they are
"T" control points..)? They have worked for me when things got a
little bent, but it took me a while to work out how to use them. (Now
that I know how to use them, I must have been pretty thick..)

HDR in a seascape is piece of cake. Just shoot the skyline and below
as two different exposures (or develop one frame two ways) and blend
them together). No trickery that hasn't been done to death in a
darkroom. I did this with Cibachrome in the "good old days". Now if I
do it with a computer program it's all of a sudden some sort of black
magic? I don't think so.

FWIW - I have found that the pandora plug-in for GIMP does a pretty good,
automated job on panoramas.

I have to say that I really like using Autopano--it's just so _easy_ to
use! It is also nice being able to export a PtGUI file if any tweaks are
needed.

Brilliant colours on the photo. I like the way the waves encircle the
boat in the centre.

Yes, but I find pandora much simpler.

The extra control in Hugin comes in handy when you're pushing
the envelope.
