    This was my first attempt at one of these.. i have no idea what happened on the bottom.. and i messed up bad on the right side between the 2nd and 3rd pic...


    Any tips on how to make it better? I probably should have taken more pictures.

    Any tutorials on how to do this? I still have the original photos

    it looks like your exposure changed throughout the picture. That's the biggest problem I see. Also, does your tripod have a level? If it does make sure it's perfect, then also you can get a hotshoe level and make sure that your camera is level throughout the picture. It's not TOO terrible for your first try though.

    Next time, shoot in manual mode, custom WB, and tripod mount it.

    what did you use to mup them together? it they aren't level you could atleast crop it to look like one seamless instead of showing the overlap

    I knew about patterns in nature, but this is a little over the top.

    When you're cloning, watch out for the repeating patterns my man.

    Yea it takes time I guess. I wanted to attempt a panorami for a while but IM never in the right situation to do it...



    For this shot... should I have taken more pictures in total for it to have been easier to crop together?


    Also and PS tips on cropping them together?

    manual mode and custom WB are essential. the tripod isn't necessarily because you can still crop or move the photo up and down but try to retain the same level across the pano.
