Cannes - Évadez-vous !

by Christian.Guittet » Mon Dec 21, 2009 12:11 am

J'utilise Autopano depuis un mois et j'arrive enfin (ou déjà ?) à  une photo qui me parait "acceptable" de La Croisette à  Cannes.
Je ne peux résister au plaisir de la poster ici:)

Christian,

Je pense qu'en te reculant un peu, en installant ton trépied sur le parapet entre la chaussée et la plage, tu auras plus de dégagement et tu obtiendras un meilleur panorama. Par ailleurs, il faut que tu fasses plus attention à  la prise de vue : les nuages sur-exposés sur la gauche ne sont pas du meilleur effet. C'est bien, tu commences à  maîtriser la technique des panoramas. Poursuis !

Christian well done. I like this panorama, especially now when it's freezing cold outside and the weather in general sucks. Go on I hope to see more, soon.

I like it too, but I think you'll get better results if you start using the Vertical lines tool!

Olivier, merci pour tes conseils. En fait, je ne peux pas reculer car il y a des escaliers qui descendent sur la plage et il y a un mat de part et d'autre - ça gâche la photo. J'avais fait un autre essai depuis le ponton du Carlton, sur 360° (http://arplastix.polytechnique.org/artistes/christian_guittet/multimedia/017.swf): c'est mieux, je crois, mais j'ai des ruptures sur les premiers plans. Depuis j'ai fait des recherches sur Internet et je crois avoir compris d'où venait le problème. Il faudra que je fasse de nouvelles photos, "weather permitting", en utilisant un trépied et en tournant si possible autour du centre optique de l'appareil photo (précédemment, c'est moi qui restait fixe en tournant sur moi-même)...

Sorry, I was wearing my lecturers hat.

I should have said: boring? discuss

Why? I'ts a technically easy shot of a not particularly interesting building on a sea front, but that's all. There's no human interest - apart from a few people in the far distance (get some people in the foreground). No thought has been given to composition (why not have taken the shot from the centre of the road, between the white Christmas tree with the palm trees towering above you).

To turn a panorama into a photograph you have to put a bit of yourself into it (controversial or not).

John, I must say I fully agree: people are definitely NOT the subject of my photograph and what you write is controversial.:lol:
I also note that you find the building "not particularly interesting", but I must stress that only few people share this opinion. It is the Carlton hotel, on la Croisette in Cannes: http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/H%C3%B4tel_Carlton_Cannes. "Il fait l'objet d'une inscription à  l’inventaire supplémentaire des monuments historiques depuis 1989" http://www.culture.gouv.fr/public/mistral/merimee_fr?ACTION=RETROUVER&FIELD_1=cmer1&VALUE_1=%27CANNES%27&FIELD_2=cmer4&VALUE_2=&FIELD_3=cmer5&VALUE_3=&FIELD_4=AUTR&VALUE_4=&FIELD_5=cmer2&VALUE_5=&FIELD_6=titre&VALUE_6=&FIELD_7=date%20protection&VALUE_7=&FIELD_8=DOSURLP&VALUE_8=%20&NUMBER=66&GRP=1&REQ=%28%28%27CANNES%27%29%20%3aLOCA%2cPLOC%2cINSEE%20%29&USRNAME=nobody&USRPWD=4%24%2534P&SPEC=9&SYN=1&IMLY=&MAX1=1&MAX2=100&MAX3=100&DOM=INV, which I cannot translate into English; let me just explain that it is an historical building, recognised as such by the French Ministry of Culture!
Also, regarding the fact that according to you, "No thought has been given to composition", you should have had a closer look to the photograph before writing. I made several tests before choosing this one. Had I shot from the centre of the road, as you recommend, I would not only have missed the "Cannes - à‰vadez-vous!" poster, which gives the panorama its title, but I would have had left and right a row of palm trees which would have ruined the picture.
In fact, I fear there is no point discussing with you and I shall no longer reply to your postings - just ignore them.:(

So true . . . :cool: - it´s not only size which matters. I told you that months ago.

désolé, mais effectivement le Carlton n'est pas au mieux de sa forme
l'inscription ne se voit guère, l'une des coupoles inspirées par les seins de la belle Othero se cache pudiquement,
non il y a mieux à  faire

OK, OK, some things are nothing less than opinion. Yet a little critique is always useful. I liked the shot. I also dont think the building is uniteresting. I dont think a shot that is more technically difficult makes anything more interesting. I agree that the verticals tool would help, that it is slightly overexposed in the sky. Yet it´s nice! I a quite similar pano last month in GuarujࡠBeach (Brasil) That one should please somebody because i has a lot of people!
