My First Attempt at a Panorama
Lens: DA 15 SMC limited Camera: K3 II Photo Location: Palouse Falls ISO: 125 Shutter Speed: 1/80s Aperture: F10 
Posted By: JimS_256, 01-13-2018, 03:34 PM

The 15mm wasn't quite wide enough for this shot so I set up my tripod and took a series of 6 images with the intention of doing panorama. It took me over a year to get around to putting them together. It also took lightroom over an hour to process them on my old slow laptop.



I thought it turned out reasonably well for a first go.

It looks good. I too have several panoramas that one day I plan to stitch :-). Here is a nice article about effect of focal length of the lens on final image TrailPixie.net: Comparing Focal Lengths and Panoramic Stitching

Thanks everyone for the nice comments. I'm excited to try more now that I see how it works. Hindsight and all that, I wish I'd tried some different angles and exposures.

The location is Palouse Falls in eastern Washington state. If you google it, you'll find some similar images. While it's out "in the middle of no where" and isn't very busy, it's a popular spot for photographers. Someone has even kayaked over the falls (and lived), again try google for the amazing video.

This is nice, I like the "flow" through the picture!
