I shot the original images with a Nikon 8008 and Fuji Velvia film. I have no idea what I was planning to do with them; at that time I had never used any pano software. In fact, I don't know what pano software was even available, if any, back then. Later, when I bought a digital camera and started playing around with Panorama Factory, I scanned in the slides and tried to put something together. Over the years and various versions of PF, I was never able to come up with something that I was satisfied with; mismatching due to parallax problems, color differences between adjacent frames, exposure differences (I didn't know about maintaining consistent exposure settings back then).
I just came across the files this last week and let APG have a try at it, and try out Neuralhazer as well. Here's the results. I was stunned; the image blending looks flawless - no ghosting or obvious mismatching, and the color blending is better than I was ever able to achive in the past - not perfect, but not bad either.
The day was less than ideal for pictures (as was the photographer - it was a wild New Year's Eve); it had snowed the day before, the temperature that morning was about -10C with a mist/fog coming up from the river, and the glare from the sun through the fog was intense. But the pano definitely captures the feeling of the place (and me) that morning.
