Summer panorama of Zadar

I don’t really have many photos from Zadar. Zadar is a city in Croatia, which I visited with my friends last year, but as it was still in the summer, it was not really great for photos. It was great to go into the sea and relax, but not for photos. When it’s crazy hot, I’m not really in the mood to walk around with a camera bag. And the huge amount of tourists around is also not helping. But even so, I took a few photos, either early in the morning or views where you can’t really see all the people. And this one is from the second category.

This photo is the view from the Bell tower in the middle of the old town. You can walk up if you pay an entrance fee. There is not that much space and it’s usually full, but if your tripod is high enough, you can prop it against the side walls. This photo is a 3 shot panorama, each shot from 5 exposures. I did not really need all of them for most of the photo, just right in the middle, there are very bright shop lights. And getting rid of those required so many exposures.

And since this is another big panorama, here are few details from this photo.

I’m back

You may have noticed no updates during the last week. The reason for this was simple, I was having a vacation. I visited the city of Zadar in Croatia, and instead of focusing on photos, I focused on enjoying the sea, the sun and good food.

Early morning in Zadar

But of course I also took few photos. Not that many, as the hot, a bit hazy, weather is not really that great for it. And of course the town was full of other people enjoying their vacation, so the center of the town was just crazy full most of the time.

So one day I somehow managed to get up before the sunset to take few shots. And here is a vertorama taken around 5 in the morning. During the day, this area was just full of people and even at 5am I was there not alone. This is the Zadar Catherdral right in the city center, and yes, you can go up the tower. I did so and will share a photo from there soon :)

This is a two shot vertorama, with a third shot used to brighten few areas. Combined in Lightroom, finished in Photoshop.
