  1. Do's and Don'ts for perfect pano's

    #1

    I wondered if someone could suggest somewhere I could really learn how to take pano's. I know the basics, manual focus, tripod, overlap, no polariser, manual exposure etc. Looking at my two screen grabs you can see one shot of the Morning Glory pool at Yosemite is flawed primarily because I missed out an image!
    I haven't a clue what is causing the rest of the obvious issues. I tried processing this in CS5 and Ptgui.

    The second image shot with a 24mm prime seems ok even if the river doesn't actually wrap around like it does in the resulting image.

    There seems to be plenty of help online but it appears geared to the novice shooting with a point and shoot.
    As an example:

    I had an issue processing a pano' of a building with vertical struts, it was suggested I work in Ptgui and use vertical control points. This was great advice, I just want to know where I can find more, there's probably questions I haven't even thought to ask.

    Perhaps someone can suggest a good book.


    Many thanks
