Default Damn Cold Night At The J-Docks.

And another magic night is coming to an end. The sun is getting ready to wipe out this sacred mood of cold, solitude and total quietness. As quiet as a cold winters-night can be in Norway.

Running nose and tingeling toes no mind - its the light that counts, the colors and the moods. 2 pictures - each made of 5 exposure HDR's - stitched together.

Actually this panorama is 1270x539pixels, but it's too large to load up here with the 253,9kb-limit.

Here is looking at the other direction (east?).




Thanks for looking!
Best regards,
Walter

Very nice walter

Can you claify, do you create normal sized HDRs and then stich them or do you stich first and then create a single HDR?

There is only one way of doing this, Martin.

If you stitch first and then create HDR's - in my case, from 5 exposures - you will not get precise alignement, because you are not 100% in control where the stich-seams will be and there will occur some misalignemet from this, naturally.

No - first you create HDR's and THEN stitch them together. I use something called ArcSoft PanoramaMaker 4 - which came bundled as a free program when I bought my first camera (Panasonic TZ-28) some years ago.

For HDR I use Dynamic Photo-HDR for almost 98% of my HDR's, giving me by far the best output-control of any HDR-program. Only if the alignement is off (hand-hold 3-exposure shots, for example) I use Photomatix, and then only for Exposure Fusion and not ToneMapping - which IMO creates far too much noise. Specially for night-scenes.

Looking forward to your own HDR-program with multi-exposures, Martin.

Best regards,
Walter

I thought I had already said something about how much I enjoyed these shots, but I guess I forgot to hit "post". These are really wonderful shots, but then I always love your pictures.
