I can appreciate the effort in stitching nine images to get this one, but the wave of the waterline completely throws my eye - I'm pretty sure that the US, much like everywhere else in the world, has water that conforms to the usual rule of sticking to it's own level, hence the bulge over on the right makes the image less than convinging...

What I'm wondering though is HOW it ended up like that - if the panorama was shot on a tripod, how did it end up getting that effect?? Surely you're far enough away to not be getting perspective distortion that needed fixing and puolled the waterline out of shape??

Colour me puzzled... (It's sort of a dark, muddy orangey blue... :) )

Cheers,
Stuart

I did not shoot it on a tripod. And I still have some more tinkering to do to it before I print it, I am not happy with the overall color and the water bothers me as well. So this is a work in progress.

Wow, handheld - that's not such a bad result then...

(You do shoot your panorama's holding the camera in portrait, so you get more vertical detail for the end result, right??)

No I shot these Horizontal. Initially I didn't know if I was going to do a pano.

Yeah, I know what you mean. My brother has a shot without the big hole, and he said the same thing when we were standing on Liberty Island.

Ok, I worked on the color, and the water. I also did some straightening, worked on fixing the distortion. So now what do you think.

Here is a large version:

All the buildings are straight, even though some things look crooked, I checked and all the building line up right, and the bridge center arches are straight.

I still have a major problem with the waterline, (and scrolling across the full size image makes it worse...) because water simply doesn't behave like that, which instantly makes me uncomfortable with what is otherwise a brilliant image... in what is probably the roughest, most basic edit I've done in the past five years ('cos I can't think of a good way to fix it with Elements - I'd probably use the Liquify tool in CS2) I cut a rectangle out from the buildings at the edge of the waterline where the worst of the swell is, pasted it, moved it down so the waterline was straight, stretched it to reach the right height for the buildings, merged it in and was instantly much, much happier with the image... as soon as the waterline is fixed, it's a breathtaking panorama...

I'll have a play at home, if I think of it when I have time, and see if I can't correct it properly, Robin...

Cheers,
Stuart

Have at it Stuart. Cause I have done all I can do, the original is too big for me to move the damn thing in liquify. I still have some things to work on, so any direction you can give me would be appreciated.
