As I mentioned few days ago, I’m quite busy right now, also with a short Prague trip starting tomorrow. So since I have no time to edit, and I will be away, for the next few days, I will repost few shots from the earlier years of this blog. For today, one from 2010 :)
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 :)
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
I 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 :)
Technique: Oloneo Photoengine, Number of exposures: 2*5, Camera Model: Sony a7R + Metabones Adapter ver. IV, Lens: Canon 16-35mm F2.8, Focal length: 16mm, Aperture: 16, Middle exposure time: 6.0s, ISO: 100, Tripod used: yes, Location: 48.13123, 17.11672
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.
