Which do you like more, this panorama, or the one I posted few days ago (which can be seen here). They were both taken during the same evening, from different corners of the Bratislava castle fortification.

Probably most will say that the older one is better, due to a very simple reason. The tower in this one is right behind the bridge, which makes for a little worse composition. But on the other side, this view gives a more 3D feel to the scene. One just can’t have everything in one shot :)

The whole SNP bridge

Technique: Oloneo Photoengine, Number of exposures: 2*3, Camera Model: Sony a7R + Metabones Adapter ver. IV, Lens: Canon 24-70mm F2.8, Focal length: 59mm, Aperture: 7.1, Middle exposure time: 8.0s, ISO: 200, Tripod used: yes, Location: 48.14159, 17.10270

This really reminds me of those time/star portals from different scifi movies. Like if the rails and lights drawn you into it :)

I was a little busy today, so no long description here, but still, this is a 3 exposure HDR, created in Oloneo Photoengine.

Behind the camera at RelaxxxI took this photo on Sunday, by the Relaxxx building in Petrzalka. It’s not that bad, but I do miss more balance in this photo. There were this crazy huge clouds on the right side, which of course disappeared right as I got some nice light.

I’m including a behind the scenes shot today, to show you how I used part of the Nodal Ninja 4, to get a nice panorama shot.

Btw.. isn’t it funny, that in this building is a fitness center on the top floors and a drive through KFC on the bottom :)

Let’s continue with another panorama. With all the photos I took from the Bratislava Castle over the years, I think I never did one from this exact spot. And with the a7R it’s just so nice and detailed :)

This is a 2 tile pano, each tile form 3 exposures. I did blend them manually, as the base exposure covered much of the dynamic range, and only few lights needed to be recovered, and the trees were too dark. Other than that, I quite liked the camera result on it’s own.

Oloneo PanoramaA little change to all the photos I took from under it :). It was actually lucky that I went to the bridge on last Friday, as it was a state holiday, so much fewer cars on the bridge, so much less shaking. Like that I even got longer exposures without any problems, which is usually quite hard from there.

This is another one from my recent trend of doing more panoramic shots. I didn’t even use a panoramic head. You actually don’t need one all the time. If what you are shooting is far enough, or you have a uniform area close to you (road, pavement) where it easily can be blended, you can just do a panorama without it. You don’t even have to be that exact :) Here on the side you can see how this photo looked like put together, before all the needed cropping and correction.
