Continuing from my yesterdays post of Vidhana Soudha, I present a composite image of the building made from 3 different photographs. The building is wide and its not possible to capture the full width with an 18mm focal length from across the street.
I have always desired to buy an ultra wide angle lens, may be a Canon EF-S 10~22 or the less expensive but equally good Sigma 10~20 EX DC, but havent been able to afford either yet. So for the time being, I need to make do with making panoramas with multiple images. I have used 3 images to make this one, and as the canon supplied panorama maker was foxed due to slightly different focal lengths used to take the 3 photographs, i had to manually edit (for matching size and minoe exposure differences) the 3 photos in photoshop and then combine to make this one.
WORKSHOP: Have made an entirely new attempt at the panorama (manual again. Have removed green streaks of lights that were visible in the sky, have used transform function to skew the image and remove lens distortion to some extent at the ends.

What an improvement from the original! You did some excellent work on this...the streaks are completely gone, all of the colours and tones are matching and the breaking lines are also gone. I love the way this building stands out at night...it really is lit perfectly. Your sharpness is excellent and I like the framing too. Well done and thanks for sharing!

A finely composed view, with the building that is sharp and clear with fine contrasts between the golden colours and the blue windows and with the pitch black background.

You have done a superb job here in stitching the 3 photos. The lighting is well captured, sharp even at this size. I like the the pitch dark BG for this night shot of an impressive building. I think you should have posted it as a large format to achieve an even more impressive presentation.
Fine piece of work.

Your creativity and patience makes you a remarkable image maker! I never did photo stitching, I did a couple but it wasn't as good. I didn't notice till you mentioned it in your notes. You not only have the eye but the technical know how in photography! Keep it up ;)
All the best!

Decorous night shot of the attractive building illuminated beautifully. Any seams can not be seen. Great stitching technique.
Best wishes, Hisashi
