Default Seattle from Kite Hill in Gasworks Park.

From 3 pics (but selectively cropped to eliminate conflicts) using DA*16-50 (@16mm f/8 1/125) and K20D. Full size is 10512 wide with almost to much detail to look at.

Oooh - very nice, daz. The time of the day sure gives you the feeling of the undulating terrain. I really like it.

Thanks mtngal. The terrain really is is undulating a lot but with out the lighting it would be hard to see in a 2D photo. You can see the full size photo here http://www.flickr.com/photos/dazt/4372823779/sizes/l/.

Default Main St. Milton

Hello Everyone,

I like the topic!

Made me go out and try out an idea I've been wanting to do since I moved here to Milton.

It's to do a linear panorama of our Main St. here.

[This picture is so wide, I'm not sure this post will work. But here it goes.]

[If this doesn't work, you can view the picture here. . . http://www.tacticdesigns.com/picts/mainstmilton ]

Did you shoot this from one spot or did you move along the street to keep the perspective looking more like an elevation drawing than a real photograph? I'm really interested in how you managed this type of long picture, especially since you weren't all that far away from the buildings.

I did one like that for downtown Winter Haven last year.
And yes, I walked down the block with a tripod stopping every so often to shoot. it works pretty well. Nice job Glen.

Hello Mtngal!

Yes. I walked down the street. And it is a very narrow street. (No way to get this image in one shot.)

I took about 80 shots or so, tried to send it through autopano & hugin, but I couldn't figure out how to make that work. So I just used hugin to try to straighten out some of the pictures (15-20?) so the buildings were more square. Then melded them together with Photoshop.

I think this image is more effective when you can't see the whole thing at once. Better to click on the link and have to scroll through the image. Or, if I can print this thing large enough and place it in a narrow hallway so that you can't back up far enough to see the whole thing and you're forced to walk to see the whole thing. <grin>

As mentioned before, I really found this topic interesting, and I had a lot of fun trying this out!

Take care,
Glen

Very close to a 180 degree panorama taken from High Point Overlook. Wilson Cliffs are to the right. Calico Hills are to the left. Taken with a 1957 Asahi Pentax AP with c. 1953 Angenieux 28mm f/3.5 Retrofocus.

I know that spot - I've taken pictures there before once or twice. The last time there was a dusting of snow, quickly melting and I didn't stop there (was still pretty icy). What's amazing is that you can't see any civilization at all in your picture, and it's only 5-10 minutes to some major subdivisions and urban development. And not all that much further to some very bright lights...
