Post Your Panoramic Pictures!

I love panoramic images and after creating three more today, I figure I'll share them with everyone. Everyone, share your panoramic pictures!

---


This is taken while I volunteered in New Orleans a few weeks ago. It's of the Van Hanh Buddhist Temple, and it illustrates the magnitude of the cleanup done still. in the few days that we worked there, the pile of trash stretching across the front of the temple is a bit overwhelming. Actually the line stretches about 1/4 more over to the right of the image. There's everything from insulation to sheetrock to shingles to refrigerators.


Another overwhelming picture of how much trash can accumulate, this at another worksite in New Orleans, the Church of Our Lady La-Vang. In one day, me and everyone else from my school (10 others) sorted through thousands of chairs, throwing away half which is shown here. The chairs that were kept took two days to power wash everything ... so much work done, and so much work yet to be done.

---


And this is from today, randomly stopped by my old elementary school and had a look around. I still remember running out those doors on the left to play in the middle playground, altho' I remember wood playsets instead of plastic, and an amazing tire swing. We used to play football and soccer back behind the playgrounds, or make forts by the fence on the right. Speaking of back and right, I remember going sledding down the hill way back there ... ah good times.


This is at the Coon Rapids Dam over the Mississippi River by my house. Looking down, seeing the big island in the middle and the two smaller ones on either side is amazing, plus the sound of water is nice, if not loud. The sun was messing up my exposures on the right half, thank you very much!


This is on the other side of the dam, and it's a serene contrast to the turbulent waters. On the left is my hometown's water tower (Brooklyn Park) and on the east side of the river you can see ice and snow still there, even through the unseasonably mild temperatures lately (30 days in a row above average)

---

These pictures were all taken by me on a Lumix FX-9, and stitched together with ArcSoft's Panorama Maker 3 (horrible software IMO), then autoleveled in Photoshop CS and resized for web, 80% JPEG.

I kinda wish the faint bands aren't there, but I'm not sure how much more I can do with them. Plus I wish the FX-9 has a panorama mode, that way the exposures are locked for a more even image. But these images are amazing, both in detail and beauty I think.

What do you think?

Nice panoramas, Over and Kyle. I was confused by the snow pictures thinking Over lived near the MS River in La until seeing your actual home state.

For us hobbyist shooters I personally feel a lot can be forgiven if a panorama isn't perfectly exposed, etc., We can learn a lot about the process every time and I'm glad to see new panoramas posted here.

Here's one of the Minneapolis skyline at sunset ... I'll be back trying out a later time to get more dramatic colors, and steadier hands so I don't get as much picture blur for camera movement during the exposure. =)

Trailridge Road, CO

Looking west at the highest elevation of the road (over 10,000 feet as I recall) taken in late Sept 2005. Notable only because it was handheld (without much oxygen it seemed like a good idea), seeing the higher areas above the tree line, and in a couple more weeks the road was closed for the winter.

Beautiful. I'm going to try my hand at panos soon I think. I live in such a geographically boring place (Indianapolis)...except for that I love it though.

Great shot, bartelby. My wife and I stayed overnight in Brighton after our plane had an emergency landing at Gatwick. Only saw the pier at night, and even then we were exhausted.

This panorama of the Bay of Chaleur was comped from five verticals in PS.

The first one is from a 40 mile bike ride I did in '07. The second one was taken at Alyeska Ski Resort a couple weeks ago.
