Default Night-Panorama shot of Fredrikstad - The G1 exercise

Following my other thread with almost the same title: http://forums.steves-digicams.com/la...ew-camera.html I would like to close this exercise of taking night-shots with my Panasonic Lumix G1 with this here panorama-stitch.

Needless to say, I'm quite proud of my new 'baby', and once I get the White-balance problem solved (need an update of FirmWare) I'll be set for the foreseeable future (1 year...?).

This camera is tailored for taking HDR's as its Auto Bracket-settings are the best I have ever seen on any camera (short of the Pentax K7 / Nikon D300 and upwards) as I can choose to take either 3pics, 5pics or 7pics with either 1/3rds or 2/3rds of an EV in between, giving me a total span of from -2 up via 0 to +2 EV's with 2/3rds increments, at its biggest settings.

Anyway, here are the 3 single HDR-pictures that I used to stich this 3-picture panorama.



# 1 - Left picture:



# 2 - Middle picture:



# 3 - Right picture:



#4 - The Panorama of "Fredrikstad by night" - here at 1280pixels x 510pixels. The original, unscaled version is 6729 x 2615 pixels.


For those with lesser resolution to their monitors, here is one with...



...1024x 408 pixels.

I hope that you will enjoy looking at the pictures, as much as I enjoyed taking them.

See ya!

It's like a logical and perfect evolution: HDR + Panorama + Walter = winners. The level of micro details in the houses, the lights and the smoke is impressive.

Absolutely stunning, Walter! Sensational colours and amazing details - I want to get such great night shots too

What stands out at the pano are the fantastic layers - foregrund, water, beautiful town lights, sunlight and then the terrific sky!

Is it possible to buy that pano as a poster? Would need something to put above my couch

Maggo if you need something to put over your couch I can let you have a large reclining nude of Bynx. It wouldnt be expensive at all. And it would certainly be a conversation piece. Most people would be saying in their conversation "What the hell were you thinking?"

Holy **** - that's what I've always been dreaming about - the great Bynx in his birthday suit right in my livingroom *lol*

Would be something different of course
