A view from Prospect Blvd. looking North on a sunny day in early November. For another view point see gigapan.org/gigapans/37534/
I have also now reduced the banding in the sky on newer pans.

    Zmalol, I am interested in the vignetting program from Poland. I will need to try that out. OOOOOOOO Rlrydeen You used auto exposure and were lucky that you do not have varying exposure from photo to photo. I would recommend that you use manual exposure in the future. You can minimize vignetting by increasing the aperture value which reduces the diameter of the diaphragm and captures light more from the center of the lens. You can also slightly reduce the focal length. If you own Photoshop or Aperture you can post process the images to reduce the vignetting. Use Photoshop bridge to select the photos and apply a uniform correction by using select ALL, synchronize, Save of the vignetting controls in the sixth tab in Adobe RAW if you captured camera RAW images. In Aperture ( Apple OSX / Mac ) use the lift of the image adjustment devignetting and then stamp it to all of the photos.

    Hi Robert, it's good to see another Twin Cities photographer here. This is an impressive first attempt. I'm looking forward to seeing more from you. It looks like you've got more overlap of pictures than you need. If you're using a GigaPan, re-do the setup. It'll give you faster shooting times. Tom

    vertical stripes are caused by vignetting of your camera lens. Try to reduce this before stitching by batch processing in a freeware available at vignetting.republika.pl Will open in
