G'day all,

Here is a 9 shot panoramic stitched shot of Hobart City and surrounded suburbs. Taken from on top of Mt Wellington.
Sorry about the size but seriously it would look utter crap if it were much smaller. And the original size is like 366cm wide.

Tell me what you all think. Any anyone from Hobart like PJ, you should get a kick out of this shot.

Ollie

G'day,

glad that you liked it. I used a program called Autostitch. It is a trial version in that you have full access to all its abilities but if you want to start commercial sales of what you get out of it they expect that you should pay for a full licence. I am thinking that unless I can find a better program or do better in photoshop then I will be buying the licence.

G'day Ollie!

Yeah, I LOVE this pano! You've captured Hobart very well. I can tell so many places from the photo. The exposure and lighting is VERY nice, I like it! (and good you caught both bridges, and Derwent Entertainment Centre, casino, docks, etc and other landmarks). I can locate many places, including my uncle's apartment and my brother's former uni residence.

The only very slight criticism is that about 25% into the photo (near the left) the part I guess near the Cadbury chocolate factory, the lights seem a bit blurred / not so "pin prick" like as others. Maybe this is due to the stitching programme (I know from experience this sometimes happens) OR original photo there was a bit blurred (I trust you needed a tripod or were resting on the handrails at Mt Wellington lookout).

It's a fantastic photo, great pano work. I have a night time shot of Cluj (Romania) I'll try to upload sometime, ok.

OK, two PS's before I go:

1. PS: Sorry I haven't answered your PM yet. I will soon. Lots of busy days as I'm preparing children camps with the charity / mission work I'm doing here in Romania (ah... life so full of priorities... so I aren't able to be as much on Steve's or doing as much photography as I'd like) I'm writing this publicly so all know I'm not trying to be absent, just life is so full of business at the moment, and I must prioritise!

2. PPS: you said I'm from Hobart!!! How dare you! (I'm a northerner, from "Lonnie"... and proud of it). But hey, seeing as I'm 2 continents and half a world away from you, I'll forgive you!! :blah:

Thanks for sharing

Paul

Yes, I can see my old house! Fabulous pano Ollie. I have my own daylight pano of this scene, but night-time looks superb. As PJ said, pity some parts of it aren't so sharp.

Cheers,
Ollie

G'day all,

thanks for the comments and replies guys. The reason it was a little blurry on the left is that up on that darn mt it is darn freezing and gets a little windy too. I managed to take several shots with no wind from right to left but then it picked up. And it got so cold that my fingers were starting to lose any feeling. I dont' recommend it. So there you have it, windy cold shiverring shot. I did use a tripod and a 80-300 lens, but it wasn't enough to keep it from giving me that slight bit of blur.

PJ, sorry about the Hobart comment, but seeming as you are from up north, I thought it was at least a compliment :P:P:P

Take care all. I will post up another couple of panoramics later.

Ollie
