Sure :)

There's nothing much to the basic look TBH other than using the VisionLog DCP to flatten the images then extreme use of the highlight (sometimes -100), shadows (+50 - +60) and clarity (+50 - +70) sliders in ACR. I wanted a fairly muted, low contrast look with a bit of punch (I know, that sounds contradictory lol). I tend to increase vibrance (+20 - +50) and reduce saturation (-10 - -30) which makes certain colors pop and then increase contrast (using the contrast slider) until the darks feel roughly in the place I want. I then use the curves to increase/decrease the mids and highs depending on what is needed (i.e. to recover more highlight info or increase mid contrast).

I didn't use much sharpening as there can be an insane amount of detail when you stitch 50+ 5k shots and Dual ISO means I rarely need to use any noise reduction. Lastly, I manually adjust WB to either warm or cool the look and use the tint slider if it needs subtle correction.

Once I have a look that I'm happy with I apply it to the other shots that will make up the panorama and export to 16bit TIFFs. I then load them into ICE and let it do it's stitching thing. Hit auto crop and export the stitched file as a TIFF (can be a huge file). I then load this into Photoshop, do a little dodge/burn where I think it needs it (i.e. make the foreground more contrasty), play with cropping (although I'm a bit lazy and could probably compose better), add a vignette and a frame using a NIK plugin and save again as a TIFF and a lower res Jpeg. I did use some NIK color contrast on a couple of these shots and use the plugins a lot for other work but these were pretty much all ACR and Photoshop.

I wasn't too careful when shooting a couple of the panos and missed snapping some foreground detail (road,cobble paths etc) but I just filled the missing sections with the clone stamp tool. The images could be much better TBH but I was just experimenting. I feel quite comfortable with the workflow now so I'm gonna try to shoot some 'for print' panos, night cityscapes etc and spend much longer on post production.

If there is anything specific you want to know just ask. I can upload a few of the ACR presets I created but obviously each shot is different and thy probably wouldn't be of any use.

These are great Andy.  I've done plenty of landscape stuff, but never thought of doing it in the style you have.

It is really a good example of why all the megapixels, dr, latitude, dual iso and such don't matter much. Despite all that, those are still horribly composed, randomly framed terrible shots. It seems that it does not even matter if the camera is leveled in those mega-multi-milion-pixels "architecture" shots. No ML feature or other hack will ever help fundamentally bad pictures.

In the first two sentences of the thread, he states that these pictures are experimental and he's mainly a video guy. But then again, no amount of descriptions and information will ever help fundamentally bad reading comprehension skills.

Had a chuckle while reading that especially after writing this: "although I'm a bit lazy and could probably compose better" ;D

Give me some composition tips if you want. I'm not precious.

+thanks N/A, Danne & Audionut :)

I am really glad you have a good sense of humor and distance to your photos. Nothing that I wrote is against you personally and expresses a general thought about photography, using your photos only as an example. If pictures are bad, it does not matter if they are at the top of one's abilities, involve advanced techniques, technologies, are a result of an experiment or laziness - they are equally bad at the end of the day and as such a perfect example that proves my point, which was all I did. Anyone can love your photos if they want, I hope that saying they are terrible is also ok, it is a great thing that we can disagree.

When that opinion (or more specifically, your point), is provided with no supporting contribution on how the photographer may learn to produce "good" photos in the future, specifically when said photographer advised he would be happy for some tips to improve his composition, what you consider poor, then your posts can only be constructed as trolling.  No more, no less.

I would suggest that your next post in this thread contain helpful information.  Opinions are like assholes, everyone has one!

Balance shot 2 and 3 more, other than that its fine and dude is just a hater. People rag on me too to take elements out instead of taking the presence of a place.

This method of stitching produces some interesting perspective distortions, like the buildings are leaning towards you or leaning away from each other (kind of the opposite of what you usually see with wideangle architecture photography w/o a TS). Is that just a result of the program you're using to stitch? I wonder if photoshop would give it a different look, there are different perspective options in photoshop, but I've never played around with it much

ICE has a few different options for stitching also (camera motion).

Best results will be obtained where movement of the camera is consistent.  This is quite a challenge hand held!

You could use ShiftN to correct the converging lines.

how much dynamic range do you think you get using dualiso ml without taking more then one shot?
also, is it possible to do dualiso in raw video mode on the 50d? is it possible to stich photos if you have a human on the far left or far right of a horizontal photo?
