Nice pic.  Did you try a slightly lower perspective, looking further out?  Maybe show the horizon at the very top.

Not rule of thirds - but almost in the top 10th of the pic?

Thank you It's actually looking straight down. It's part of a 360 - you can see the whole view at https://roundme.com/tour/103755/view/261597/

I'm playing around with views from that 360 already

I was hoping it might provoke some thought into what it may be... it's a tidal saltwater basin You can see the whole view at https://roundme.com/tour/103755/view/261597/

Yes, that turned out great.
Can’t wait for me to feel confident enough to focus on the capturing

Indeed - it will take a little time and practice but hopefully should become second nature

Here's something you never want to discover at home after perfect conditions. Lesson learnt the hard way!

Nooooooo.
That is a real bummer.
I know that feeling all too well.
Sometimes it is just in grass, sky or water and you can fix it it post but this is too much.

What software are you using there?

I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw that. I knew the right number of images had been taken but one column had been taken twice.  Ouch.

I use Autopano Giga for stitching.

I am always counting in my head.
Making sure bottom and top rows match (I am talking about ground pano's).
And still...
Sometimes it is just a small part, but other times it was a complete frame...

Ok, I have not worked with that.
Did you use other programs before?
(like Ps, ICE ? )

I've always used Autopano but have tried ICE but it didn’t give me the control I was accustomed to. Autopano Giga has a steep learning curve and having used it for so long (must be over a decade now... memory fades) I know which parts work for me and which bits annoyingly have a mind of their own and take persuasion...

It feels like Kolor has an advanced and flexible stitching engine but it’s been hard to make an understandable UI and maintain the flexibility. As you can see, it's capable of turning out good results.

You can say that.
As I have Ps already, I will first try that.
(since Autopano is € 99,-)

Indeed - always a good idea to try out the tools you already have. I’m using the dearer version of Autopano - Autopano Giga. Having just looked at their comparison chart, I'm heavily relying on Giga's additional features.

Aha, I missed the comparison sheet indeed.
That makes it even more expensive....
It might be better to try affinity first before going this road.
I believe they also have a decent stitching engine.
(not tried that)

I have Affinity Photo myself but never thought to throw it a set of images from a 360 for stitching.

I just tried it and got some odd results. Someone correct me if I'm wrong but I'm not convinced it can stitch 360 by 180 panos but it can certainly edit ones that have already been rendered as equirectangular images by other software.
Here's what happened to a sky hemisphere. Looks like half a pair of spectacles

Wow, that looks odd.
No way that is gonna work.
I have no experience with affinity, but want to look at it as a replacement for Ps.

I bought Affinity too with an eye to replacing PS when the time comes. I'm still sitting on the fence...
