I like this. There is a heart shape around her. The stick in the foreground and the branches of the tree form the heart. Nicely done.

Hey I notice that everyone is starting to say "bokeh panorama".

Does Benizer get $.25 every time we type it or something?

hehe :)

Great shots, everyone.

I've tried this a few times and I get it wrong every time.
I don't seem to take enough shots and I have gaps within the photo.

Does anyone have any techniques on how to make sure you have 100 coverage in the area you want in your shot?

and one more question... what program do you all use to merge? I've been using microsoft ICE... It merges it automatically.. Do you think that may be the issue?

It's not ICE. ICE does a fantastic job. You gotta give it 20-30% overlap in the images. Better to be generous with the overlap then to take them all, go to stitch them, and find that you're missing a spot in your image.

ok great. thanks for the response!

I always feel like I was talking a TON of shots, so I should be good, but all three times I've tried, I missed a chunk in the middle or off to the side and it was so frustrating!

I think I took an average of about 30 shots with the 70-200 fully extended, but sounds like I need to take more! I'm gonna try with the 135L and see if I get better results, too.

i used to use my 70-200, but wasn't successful most of the time either. you really need to take a lot of pics to make sure you cover the entire area. once i got my 85 f/1.4, i found it a lot easier to use, plus i had numerous times to practice. i use photoshop cs6 to stitch it together but it's usually hit or miss. personally, i think ICE works the best and stitches much faster! good luck with the 135L, be sure to post your results

My first attempt, shot on a 7D with a 70-200 2.8 so I knew I had to take a lot of shots, was around 60 or 70 in the end I think. Unfortunately photomerge on CS6 decided it wasnt going to play ball and refused to even attempt to stitch them so this is my attempt at a simple cut and paste job on what has to be one of the most frustrating jigsaws in the world. Not perfectly matched up and smoothed out as I think I need to give it a day or two before going back over my work so apologies for the errors in the background.

I think it was a bit successful in terms of the wide field of view and shallow depth of field but my subject just looks completely out of proportion compared to the trees

That's pretty impressive for a cut/paste job. If ICE didn't cooperate with me, I'd just give up altogether!

Thanks, once you get the hang of matching everything a point up then blending it together it wasnt that hard in most cases, but my god was it tedious. Normally I would of given up but given this was my first attempt at one of these shots ever and I had had this shot thought out in my head I kind of felt I would be letting the computer win if i gave up

B&W Flower (external link) by dcanavanphoto (external link), on Flickr

71 Images, 135mm @ f/2, 1.2gigapixels had some ghosting on the flower so had to go and insert the parts I wanted to be sharp.

Nowhere near the jigsaw puzzle mentioned above, that' requires some serious patience. I'm noticing I have more success in post processing when I put the 7D on 8fps (making the above image 10seconds of motor driving) and just move slowly through things, rather than trying to line each one up individually; with this many images it seems more information is needed to have success compared to the 25-30% overlap needed for a typical panoramic.

As someone who doesn't know what the original size of the trees are it doesn't bother me.

Great shot by the way. I haven't had a chance to give it a go but good to know the 7D and 70-200 can do a good job of it.

Nothing against your photo, but I think macro shots defeat the purpose of the Brenizer method. You can probably get a very similar shot with a macro lens.
