I posted some pictures the other day of my sons Pumpkin Patch trip.Well, one picture I had some issues with. I needed to take a wide shot of the whole class and parents on the flat bed. With my cropped sensor and fixed lens it wasn't going to happen. So I needed to take 2 pictures and hope they would line up. I did also get everyone to cozy up to one another for one shot, but I accidentally cut someone off... oops... good thing I was volunteering!

So here's the two shots I took of the group:

I overlayed the two photos and didn't worry about color correcting at first. I then rotated, adjusted and did most of the work on the second picture. The first one I used the anchor, so to speak.

If you look at the top leftt on the picture above and then just under the hay on the left, you can see areas I either erased, painted or used the contentaware fill (which was mostly for the garage door and inside the barn in the background).

It all came together really nicely. I added some curves adjustments to the picture on the left and adjusted the levels till it all matched with the lighting. I think it looks fairly decent for a panorama picture shot with a fixed, non-wide lens.

Pumpkin Patch Trip Number Two is coming later this week, but I don't think we're going to get as nice of weather though.

Cheers, Matthew A. Hawkins
