Creating a Panorama of Epcot’s Flower and Garden Festival

A wide sweeping scene can often be photographed using an ultra wide angle lens. When the scene is so wide such a lens can not fit it all in, that is when you can photograph a sequence of photos to merge into a panorama.

Most of today’s photo editors can create panoramas.. The trick is to overlap the sequence of photos about a 1/4 to a 1/3 for best results.  Below are the middle five photos of the seven I used to create a panorama of one of the Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival flower gardens near the Imagination Pavilion.

After selecting the seven photos in Adobe’s Lightroom Classic, I selected Photo Merge/Panorama which brought up this panel.

The preview shows the default selections on the panel created an excellent image. If I had not kept the camera level when taking the merged photos, there might have been white areas as the program matched up the images. In that case, the auto crop would show a crop box what would be the final image. I clicked the Merge button at the bottom to start the process. After a couple of minutes, the merged image was returned to Lightroom for editing.

Here is the final version…

Panoramas make excellent wall prints in your home or offices. They can also be used online for web page banners and such.

Where else at Walt Disney World would create a panorama image?
