The Port of Sydney undergoing major redevelopment.

A six(6) shot (portrait) panorama shot on a Really Right Stuff pannning clamp and nodal slide, stitched in PTGui.

Really looking for feedback on this as I am just starting to experiment with true panoramas.

    Well I cant tell its a stich up so guess that’s a great start Mark!

    Not sure if your looking for any critique on the composition, the road and LHS bulk keeps dragging my eye in and around to the left…. I think it works really well, looking forwward to how you apply it to a beach or rockscape :-)

  • Thasnks mate. After a couple of days of finding the nodal point for my smaller zoom and fixed, I agree I think I found it. I’m glad an experienced eye couldn’t tell, as I certainly couldn’t. Looking forward to some seascape’s now I’m armed with a new trick.

    Wow! this really right stuff must be made of kryptonite/unobtanium alloy, best part of $190 for an L bracket- ouch…. Make a $1000 tripod seem like a bargan…

  • Yeah not cheap but all their L-plates are custom nade for a specific camera. As I already had one I thought it would be a cheaper alternative than a new pano specific head. FYI the Lplate is excellent, just flip it from landscape to portrait in 30sec

    remember that water and moving water is very hard to stitch mark, you will need long exposures for it to work. cheer s don
