I’d like to encourage you to post your panoramas here. Please share any comments about the image that you’d like. Hoping it’s less of a technical thread than a chance to see images from where you love to shoot.
Saint’s Landing Beach Brewster, MA
Oly EM-1, Panasonic Lumix 20mm, Nodal Ninja. darktable 3.6 and Hugin.
Fort Pickering Light at Winter Island, Salem MA
Olympus E-P5, 14-42mm kit lens handheld. Darktable and Hugin with workflow described here. It’s an awkward process but works well enough.
In Rockport MA there is a fishing shack known as “Motif #1” because it’s painted and photographed so often. Supposedly this lighthouse is the “Motif #1 of Salem”. I was not the only one taking photos that day…
Edmonton skyline, taken the night of December 25, 2016 from the top of Connors hill. The smoke from the top of the buildings is from their furnaces - the temperature was a chilly -22C. There are a couple of bridges under construction here; I think they might be complete now. Maybe I’ll head back next winter to see how it looks now.
60 images (10 stacks of 6), ranging in exposure from 1/8s to 2 minutes each.
Thanks for the share- very nice shot. I need to get up to Salem this fall. As much as I hate driving through Boston, it looks like it would be worth a trip.
Man- that’s one frigid night to be out shooting. Great shot, glad you could take the cold!
Winter Island is an interesting spot, also has the ruins of the fort, a huge old seaplane hangar, and an abandoned barracks. Unfortunately driving up there is going to be even worse than usual, a truck hit an I-93 bridge north of Boston yesterday and it’s going to be under construction for a couple months.
Here’s another Boston one from a few years ago:
Olympus E-PL6, 14-42mm kit lens, Darktable and Hugin, from 2017, not sure of the version.
It’s from the top of the Bunker Hill Monument in Charlestown - 294 steps to the top. There is a small window in each side - by shooting leftward from the right side of the window and vice versa it’s possible to get all 360 degrees with no gaps. The windows are Plexiglass and not in great condition - with multiple shots from different positions and enough overlap, if there’s a scratch in one shot hopefully the same area appears in another shot where the window was clearer. It was a gloomy overcast day, I tried to brighten the colors but need to shoot this again on a sunny day.
Always good to include some extra foreground!
Another shot from Saints Landing Brewster MA. This one was assembled In Hugin from a series of HDR exposures merged in darktable.
@jonathanBieler I enjoy the normalcy of your entry. I tend to look up and down rather than sideways, so for me a vertical pano is easier to digest and appreciate.
Thanks. I love shooting in the cold, as there is nobody else around to get in the way.
How about this?
A 360x180 degree multi image panorama, of a sensory garden near me.
Stitched using hugin as a 360x180 degree equirectangular image, then reprojected using Hugin to a tiny planet using stereographic projection
Sadly I sold my panoramic tripod head (a nodal ninja mk2) due to it not fitting my new camera and lens, I can’t justify the expense of a new one at the moment!
I think @Morgan_Hardwood probably has some killer panos.
For my own part:
The Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg, Russia
This was a chance to bend some pixels with Hugin to straighten up many of the lines. I wish I had gotten more shots for a better actual composition, but I was happy with the final projection.
From the Leipzig zoo (if we’re doing some vertical shots):
And a “little planet” in downtown Mobile, Alabama:
This was my first try with a do-it-yourself pano head I hacked together from some aluminum bar and a couple of screws. I was actually missing the nadir and had to rebuild the grass there using inpainting. (Fun side note - I got married in that cathedral to the woman almost right in front of it and made that little person next to her, with her… ).
@patdavid Good subjects. Yes, the more vertical shots the better.
@Marcsitkin I like your latest. Summer glow at the local fishing hole.

I took 10 pictures of about 20-30 m long graffiti, moving every time 2-3 meters. I combined pictures with Hugin. This is small version, original Tiff-image was about 860 MB
