Help blending pano

I need help in tweaking this pano I stitched with PT GUi - the frame in the upper left corner was underexposed and grainy - the software did a surprisingly good job of blending it in - but there is funky colors near the bottom of the stained glass and also the ceiling looks fuzzy in one section.
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated - I would like to surprise them with this shot (-: I came here looking for ideas on post processing wedding files and then thought this may be the best place to ask about this shot!!
Thanks,
Val

Re: Help blending pano

Hi Val,

The software did do a good job of stitching the image, however, the window and organ are falling away. The grunge can be cleaned up with the clone tool. I used the perspective tool to make the window more upright and I've burned the edges a little to put the focus more on the central part where the wedding is taking place. Nice church btw.

Alison.

Good job straightening Alison, but don't forget to color adjust.

Re: Help blending pano

The prespective corretion sure helped this one. The orginal kind of reminded me of a fish eye lense (fish bowl effect)...like Alison said, it was falling away...kind of made me dizzy. Nice fix.

Re: Help blending pano

I don't know if this is an appropriate comment - and someone slap me if it isn't - but I always think of weddings as happy occasions and this photo feels somber and gloomy to me. I think you're right about the color correction, Dave - and I'd lift the heavy shadow at the ceiling.

OK, MJ. On the first one I just retouched Alison's retouch. (The lazy approach). Here's one like you suggested.

Hi Dave,

Thanks. I did do the colour adjustment but thought that it looked a little cold, so I added a warming filter

Re: Help blending pano

Alison, I have to agree with you regarding the warmer tones. It gives a much better ambience to the photo which I think otherwise looks cold and sterile.

I see what you mean. It seemed a bit too yellow to me, but I guess it's just preference, since the lighing often does make it yellow.

Re: Help blending pano

Yes - the lighting was strong coming in through the stained glass windows and was a warm tint. The church didn't allow for any decorating of any kind also. Thanks for all of the responses - I am glad you guys brought up the perspective tool, thanks, Val
