Old Henry's Church

I was wondering how this one turned out. It looks really good. I noticed that the image didn't line up properly near the bottom of the altar. I was wondering if this could have been remedied if one of the images had been a full shot of the altar. How many images did you stitch together? Did you change the point of focus on any of them or was it set at hyperfocal distance? This is a really unique view. I wish I had tried it!

Hi John,

This image is made up of 11 photos. I was too lazy to take the time to repair the floor area at the front of the church. What you see is straight out of CS3 other than a crop to clean up the edges. Considering how dark it was inside the church, and the dynamic range of this string of images, I was surprised how well they blended. I used an 18mm lens but need a wider lens to do a proper job in this small room. I did change the focus for each image trying to maximize the depth of field using f22. This was a crude, down and dirty attempt at a panorama. To do it right I would want a wider angel lens and spend more time leveling things up. It is an interesting test run but has too many technical faults be anything other than a crude record of the interior of this church.
