A friend and I went hiking on Christmas day to the Woody Gap, just north of Suches, GA on Route 60. It is an enjoyable, easy-to-moderate hike. Fortunately I am not a seriously practicing Muslimah or hiking would not be for me.
Anyway, better late than never, here are some photographs.
And here are two panoramic views from the trail. Both were generated from the same set of six photos taken at the same settings but without a tripod.
The first one was generated from the Photomerge feature of Adobe Photoshop Elements 2.0. In my experience, Photoshop Elements does not do a very good job as it does not have lens models and such.
The second one was automatically generated by Photovista Panorama. I was disappointed by the quality of its output here. In some ways, it is better than the Photoshop one, but there are still too many artifacts.
Which one do you think is better?
