St. Peter’s Church Panorama

Whenever I walked into Kapittelstraat, I was saying to myself that one day I will come here and take a picture of the whole church. From Kapittelstraat you have a great view, almost 180 degrees of this beautiful church. I was excited to find out if I can make it with 16-50mm Sony lens.

Today I was coming back from Kollenberg after a beautiful sunrise and decided to try it out. The light was great and so I set up my tripod, put my camera vertically and looked through the view finder. Surprisingly the tower fit it into the frame. After all measurements, I counted that it’s going to take 13 images to cover the whole church.  First round didn’t work well as two of the images from the sequence were a bit blurry, so I started again…The fifth approach worked perfectly and I even nailed it the panning quite well.

When making panorama, you never know 100% if it’s going to be good or not until you stitch the pictures together. This time I was counting 75% of being successful with this panorama. After basic editing in Lightroom, I send those images to Photoshop. It worked quite well with a small amount of distortion. Not a bit deal to correct it. Then I cropped the image and sent it back to Lightroom for double editing, where I continued with my workflow…In overall It was a great challenge and I definitely learned few things along the way.
