This is amazing Jerome. Do you mind me asking what focal length you are taking your photos at? It seems like a good length as it does not distort your photo.

Wowie! Fav. These trees look like they are tortured and dancing too! Wonderful and 38 photos! Wow

@888rachel
Dear Rachel, thank you for your kind attention!
I took the individual shots for this stitch with my all-round zoom. It was part of the kit when buying the camera: AF-S NIKKOR 24-120 mm 1: 4G ED VR. So it is not a special lens, but well suited for my tours.

The data of the photos for the stitch:
F / 22
1/100 sec
ISO 100
focal length 24mm

Distortions can be corrected well with Lightroom.

Stitching almost always creates distortions. Sometimes they are desired to achieve a certain effect. If you want to edit the distortions, there are some possibilities with Photoshop.

I hope I could answer your question. Please do not hesitate if you want more information.

@jerome Thanks Jerome, your information is so helpful.I really appreciate you sharing. @taffy you might find the above info interesting regarding stitching.
posted March 17th, 2018  
@888rachel You are welcome!
posted March 17th, 2018  
@888rachel This is really interesting to read - an amazing result too. Jerome, do you stitch it both vertically and horizontally using PS?
posted March 17th, 2018  
@taffy Yes, in this case, I took pictures not just along a line, but over a large area - both vertically and horizontally. But I put together the single images with Lightroom or with a special program for creating panoramas (Image Composite Editor). My PS needs a very long time for this process or the PC hangs (maybe you have a more powerful PC).
posted March 17th, 2018  
@jerome I've not been able to get PS to stitch vertically. I'll look into Image Composite Editor-- thanks.
posted March 17th, 2018  
@taffy I have had very good experiences with Image Composite Editor. It works very fast and 95% of the results are ok. Sometimes there are minor flaws, but usually can be repaired manually with PS. You can download it for free. However, this program can not handle RAW files. If you have taken your photos in RAW format, you need to transform it - in JPG. Either you do this with PS. But faster you are with a special program - I use "RAW Extractor" - also free download. This RAW Extractor works fast and very reliable, even with a large number of files.

38 photos stitched together!? I hope you had a good thimble -- otherwise your finger must be very sore from the stitching! :-)

Such a strange-looking find. Isn't it amazing what mother nature does?
