Canyonland National Park

by sjhenry » Sat Oct 23, 2010 1:13 am

The following picture is from the Canyonlands National Park. You can view a larger version at http://www.gigagraphy.com/gallery/clnp_g136.html. I am looking for your comments on how to improve it both on the technical side and artistic side.

Technical side:
1. Do you see any issues on the stitch side?
2. Do you see any issues on the processing side?

Artistic side:
1. Does the composition work?
2. What about the lighting?
3. Does it evoke any emotion?
4. How do you improve this to make it a better one?

Technical detail behind this gigagraph. This is the only gigagraph (giga pixel image) I ever tried with my GigaPan Beta.

Pano Head: GigaPan Beta
Camera: Canon SX110
Lens: 360mm (full zoom)
Rows: 11
Columns: 21
Aperture: F8
Shutter: 1/80 secs
Focus: Set to infinity
Resulting image size: 54840 X 18280 pixels
FOV: 90mm lens on a 6X17 format

Thanks,
Jones

Jones, Just my thoughts on composition. The image has when zoomed in , has nice sharpness and I would expect that it would print well. However it is very busy (Lots to look at and your eye doesnt seem to be drawn to one thing. When I first looked at the larger version (on th forum) i got the impression that it was compressed vertically. Studying the image i think that a lower viewing angle (if possible) would have placed the tops of the flat plateaus on the left above the horizon and not given this effect. The gap in the clouds (Bottom left) causes a bright spot and I think detracts from the overall tone. Interesting place though and if you could get the weather to co-operate it would be better.
Keep trying
John

John,

Thank you for the constructive comments. One thing I noticed in my very wide angle images is that there are no distinct center of attraction as is the case in this gigagraph. I completely agree with you that there is too much going on here. Regarding the view angle, I was standing near the edge of the canyon so there is no way to go little further down to get the view. The other option is to get to the bottom of the canyon and try a different angle. Keep the comments coming in.

1. Does the composition work?
yes but...

2. What about the lighting?
great lightning, at the golden hour

3. Does it evoke any emotion?
no emotion, because the landscape is too flat !!! you have some better view in canyonland park (Island in the sky, or dead horse point for example)

4. How do you improve this to make it a better one?
try another view in the park, with landscape more intereting.
Look. There's a rhythmic ceremonial ritual coming up !

Ok, that reminds me that I have to install the Beta and try it :-)
Where can I download this plugin?

taf,
I agree that the scene is flat. I think it needs some close front element to make it better.

AlexandreJ,
In fact I have used the APP 2.5 beta1 to generate the full 1 giga pixel of this panorama. The haze remover plugin is a good addition to APG 2.5. I like the result - almost a velvia rendition. I'll download the APG and see the effect of the filters myself.

Jones

PS: The APP 2.5 beta1 still has problem with color rendering. I created this pano with no color correction.
