Sydney in 2013

by beetwo77 » Tue Mar 12, 2013 3:14 pm

It has been a while since I have posted any panoramas so I thought I had better put a few images up :) To be honest I have been stepping back from shooting large numbers of images and focussing more on long exposure and some stacking techniques to replicate very long exposures so these images are not necessarily particularly challenging from a technical standpoint. I hope you enjoy.

The classic Sydney Harbour shot. 16 minute exposures on the Fuji X-Pro1:

The Queen Mary 2 docked in Sydney:

This shot was very technically challenging. It is only a 4 shot pano but each of the 4 shots consists of 12 x 30 second exposures manually aligned to simulate a 6 minute exposure. Should just buy some more ND filters:

Some technical issues with this one. I might get around to reprocessing it one day but I like the shot. 5 image locations with 2 x 30 second exposures at each image location:

I like this image. Shot from only a couple of meters away from a 4 storey building. I wish there was some magic solution that would allow me to shoot very tall vertical panos from very close to tall buildings!

I like this one due to the dramatic effect of the planar projection. This was shot from about 2 meters away from a 5 storey building. Required plenty of manual control points to avoid stitching errors:

Lucky last a nice beach scene just because thats probably what people associate with Sydney :)

Oh no, here we go again... Stunningly drop dead georgus Panos from Ian again!!

Magnificant Ian, I like 'White Lines' Looks similar to what the Sigma 12-24mm Asypherical Lens turns out.

take care...
Kind regards,
