George, excellent images all, including the Orient Express shots! Interesting about the stitched shot of the church. Made me think, should I try to do that with 28 3.5 PC images (at least a couple of merged shots when the subject is too tall and I know the top part is going to be fuzzy). I think in that scenario though when the lens is at an angle to the plane of the subject, the distortion may get in the way. Worth trying still.
Of course I still don't have enough RAM on my machine to let PSE create a pano...Show more →
Hi Samy, thanks! I had no wider MF-Nikkor with me today and had to improvise with the PC 85/2.8. Sorry, I don't think the technique I've used today could work for your very tall churches.
Maybe shooting from a greater distance is the key to need less shift (=less fuzzy corners). This (stepping back) is of course a tough task in cramped quarters.
Sometimes I think the best approach to get nice church-photographs is to shoot from a distance with a normal or short telephoto-lens, even if this means that the "basement/foundation" isn't visible.
This one was stitched from two rows, each containing 4 vertical shots. The 4 upper shots were done with full shift upwards, the 4 bottom-images with modest down-shift.
