Mount Rushmore panorama[edit]

Amazing shot. Could you share some of your techniques? For example, why did you need 187 frames? It seems like 3x5=15 should be enough to get to the current resolution with a Canon 5DS. Also, when making multi-row panoramas, there are often frames that contain nothing but sky. How do you stitch those? Thanks, King of ♥ 23:15, 11 May 2020 (UTC)[reply]

Hello King of Hearts, thanks for your feedback and your interest! The problem with this stitching was to get sharp single shots. With 600mm and 50MP you can see much fluctuation of sharpness because of the heated air flow near the ground. Therefore many of the 187 images are not perfectly sharp. So I took nearly similar images and shifted the image section with every shot only about one third. The same also applies vertically, so that the different images have a lot of similarities and the actual image information is clearly less than 187 x 50 MP. The output file of my stitching software PTGui had a resolution of 1683 MP. The final crop still had a resolution of 1448 megapixels. But because of the sharpness fluctuations which despite the many similarities could not be completely eliminated at every point and because of the 30.000 x 30.000 pixels limitation of the JPEG format, I finally had to scale down the final result. So the final resolution is 30.000 × 20.397 pixels, the maximum of JPEG ;-).
As you already suspected, the sky was also a problem, because I only shoot photos, that contain stitchable picture information. So I had to add some sky with photoshop in the center of the upper image border. I made sure that the color, brightness and noise corresponds to the original image material.
Overall I worked a few days on this image. But now it's my very sharpest one. :-) Regards, -- Wolf im Wald 00:37, 12 May 2020 (UTC)[reply]
Here and here you can see the sky problem using the example of Auditorio de Tenerife 2015.jpg. Every red framed and numbered area is one single image. There I took 170 x 21 MP = 348 MP, but the resolution was also reduced because of the limited performance of my computer in 2015. -- Wolf im Wald 00:50, 12 May 2020 (UTC)[reply]
Thanks for the tips! I can think of three techniques for the sky: 1) generate fake sky automatically using content-aware fill; 2) generate fake sky manually using the clone brush; 3) take a shot of real sky using a shorter lens that includes some foreground (so that it can be stitched) and upsample/denoise. Have you tried all of them? What did you end up using? -- King of ♥ 01:15, 12 May 2020 (UTC)[reply]
I don't think, that the clone brush works, because the sky has different color and brightness at different positions. I think I tried this in my first images, but it didn't work well. I like your third idea, but unfortunately never tried it. Maybe it could be a problem to use different lenses, because every lens has its own look. So the sky could be brighter or darker with the same camera adjustments. Also the colors could be a bit different. I always use the PS gradient tool and add some noise, that is roughly equivalent to the original camera noise. Otherwise it would look very artificial and distort the picture impression. It should be as true to original as possible. -- Wolf im Wald 02:41, 12 May 2020 (UTC)[reply]
Great shot, btw. Do you use a pano head, and, if so, what model? -- Veggies (talk) 13:04, 17 May 2020 (UTC)[reply]
Thanks! Usually I use my Nodal Ninja 4 pano head, but the Canon 600mm is definitely too big for this one. So I shot the pics by hand (was torture ;-). Because of the long distance and the high focal length parallax was luckily not a big problem. -- Wolf im Wald 13:21, 17 May 2020 (UTC)[reply]
