Subject: [Leica] panorama try with old summicron R and Fuji Acros

Computer requirements are easily met by downsizing the images after
basic spotting.  It is not obvious but you will get better results with
a much wider lens with something like 30% overlap between frames so the
computer has some data points to chew on.  Andrew and Johnny both swore
by turning the scans into a spherical space before joining them together
for a far more seamless montage.

If you are not going to join the images seamlessly, ie in the boardroom
there will be some wall partitions then using the PS match color option
you can hold the color between the seams.

Truly, email Andrew Nemeng in Australia and I am sure he will give you
many hints.  You can email him at

One frame of  16  pictures with some crops for an attempt at making a
panorama for the buildings boardroom.
A dull sky but we thought it wise to practise a few times to see what
can go
One example is that we did not think of  the computing requirements to
stitch together so many tiff,s.
We will try next with a 135 mm oriented vertically.
This is one taken with an old summicron r on acros scanned at 4000 .
We do not know why the left crop looks softer.
Probably because the detail on the horizon is much farther away then in
center and we were also handholding a filter in front of the lens so...
best regards
