My first panorama attempt with the 16mm f/3.5
I was completely unable to stitch these frames without first applying an adaptive wide angle filter, plus I had to drop the last 2 frames that completed the 360 view, I tried all modes, even Microsoft ICE, but the stitching results were rather avant-garde. I used a lot of overlap in these frames, 10 for a full circle, while 4 of them do complete the view fine. Stitching all 10 or just 4 was quite unsuccessful. Dropping the last two from the set and cropping off a little bit of imaginary Adobe mountains on the right side got me to this, which except for some fake clouds to fill a big hole up high is close to 320 or more degrees. I'll stick to lenses with less distortion for future panoramas.
View from Black Giant summit, Kings Canyon National Park. Bottom left is Le Conte Canyon where the John Muir Trail runs. Image center is the Ionian Basin, one of the most remote places in California, and the saddle under the big fat clouds on the right is Muir Pass where we came from that morning.
all frames f/8 1/500s ISO 100
