A big one today (60 Mpix :) ). Those of you who follow me on facebook know that I recently bought a Panoramic head, the Nodal Ninja 4. I also posted few shot of how it looks and how I used it for this photo there. And this is the first result I’m publishing. This is a 180 degree vertorama, created from 7 photos. At first it should have been a HDR vertorama (I took multiple brackets), but as it was quite windy there, the ghosting was just too much. So instead I created this from single exposures, and I used some of the steps I do in HDR post processing on it.
As Smugmug is not so good for vertical photos (it creates very small versions of them) I uploaded the big version directly to the blog. When you click on it, you will see a smaller one, which fits a screen :)
One of my first experiments of photographing stars. I wanted to try it before, but the 450D gave me really noisy images for my satisfaction. But with the 5D it’s now much better.
I took this one at 2 a.m. at night, as I was waiting for the moon to set behind the mountains. You still can see a lot of light pollution in the photo, as there is a city behind the mountains. I also went with 8 minutes for this photo. I wanted to try 30 minutes, but I was too tired to wait there for 30 minutes without falling a sleep. And as I was standing above a cliff, I had to be careful so I don’t fall down. And of course this is not a HDR :)
A little simpler shot, but just to break apart all the blue ones. This is not yet one from this year, but from the last summer, but the weather is starting to get better so I hope soon will there be new ones
