I would really appreciate critique on this image. It is my first attempt at a Panaramic shot and I would appreciate any help with both the execution of the original images (7 in all) and also the post production side.
The images were taken at dusk in Viking bay using a 24- 70 zoom set at 30mm for each image. I shot manually and kept the exposure the same for all 7 images. Although I used a tripod and the images began straight (with the pier shot) by the time I reached the middle of the bay the horizion seems to have tilted. I am not sure whther this is the as a result of the image being distorted when combing shots in photstich or the tripod sinking on wet sand?
Post production was done by first coverting from RAW to JPEG in canera raw. The only adjustment in camera raw being slight sharpening which was consitantly applied to all 7 images. THe 7 images were then combined in photostich. Finally they were taken into photoshop. With regard to the post production side I wanted to maintain the maximum height for the image so choose to fill in any white spaces where the images did not perfectley line up rather than crop the top and bottom. I did this using the retancular margue selection tool and then the free transform tool. Have filled the whote space with the most appropriate matching colour I then used teh clone tool to hide ages and more closly tone sections.
As I said this my first attempt and I would really value comments on how well I have done and how to improve future attempts. (I don't own and adapter for my tripod for taking panoramic images and currently dont have a budget to purchase anything.)
