Panoramas in Ligtroom

Some time ago I did this guide on how to combine panoramas in Lightroom. And I have to say, that since then, around 95% of panoramas I posted are combined using just Lightroom. I used to use PTgui and Autopano, but I did not had the need for them much anymore. And even when I used them, it happened that Lightroom gave me better results.

It’s not perfect, still missing some functions (support for bracketed exposures and 360 photos would be great) but mostly the results are exactly what I want.

What are you experiences?

Amsterdam center panorama

I took this panorama at the end of March earlier this year. It was during a quite crazy weekend. I went to Amsterdam for two days, and while I also had to go to a different city, I had to change my plans and stay in Amsterdam. So I had few hours free in the end, so I went out to take few photos.

But that was not as simple as I hoped. There was a football match that evening, so the whole city center was full of (very loud) groups of fans. Not the best moment to take photos. So I stayed in this spot in the Amsterdam center, where I could go down to the water, and avoid having them in the shot. Still behind me, the noise was horrible :)

This is a two shot panorama, combined in Lightroom, finished in Photoshop.
