These panorama's were both shot through coated glass from the upper level of Tokyo Tower. The second panorama is a composite of two panorama's, each made from three photo's.

Very nice!
3 questions:
- did you shoot behind a window (that would be obviously - or not?)
- did you use a pano head (like for example Manfrotto 300N)? If not, what was your technique?

Thanks, candyman!

I inadvertently answered your first question in the edit I did to my original post, before writing this reply: They were indeed both shot through coated glass. There's a plastic coating on the inside of the glass that's a little greasy or damaged in places, which makes it a challenge to shoot without getting blurry spots. Where some blurry spots remained, I sharpened them a little locally in Photoshop.

These were all shot handheld, pretty much with the hood (almost) touching the glass. Then I stitched them in photoshop and used a bunch of warp/perspective tools to get the perspective right. The first panorama got a little dodge and sharpening applied to the lower corners due to the vignetting effect of obliquely shooting though the glass windows.

The second panorama is made up from two almost square panorama's that I shot from two different windows. It was never my intention to combine these when I was shooting them but when I stitched them in Photoshop I found them to be a little boring individually, so I combined them. The distance between the shooting positions was at least 2 meters, so you can see that you can do without a panorama head if there are no subjects close to the shooting position.

Edit: If you're interested in the EXIF information, it's embedded in the images I posted ;)

Thanks for the extra info.
You must have a steady hand.
And, remarkable result while shooting through coated glass.


Did you ever try Canon Photostich? What is your opinion about that?

Thanks again, I must admit I do have a steady hand, and IS and sufficiently short shutter speeds go a long way :)

I haven't tried Canon Photostitch; I prefer having direct access to all the other image editing features that Adobe Photoshop offers.

Not sure this is 'expansive' enough to qualify as a landscape, but...

dpc, thanks for all your contributions but maybe you should consider what classifies as 'your best landscapes'. Not to be too negative but you're almost turning this topic into a personal photo blog...
