old Dockside Sunset Pano
Posted By: little laker, 03-05-2008, 09:59 AM

This is an OLD Paddlewheeler dock, in Westbank British Columbia, Canada. Close to Kelowna.


And I managed to get there shortly before sunset last night, and set up for some pano and landscape work.

There's 30 images in this one, all shot vertically.

Thanks Bruce,

I just finished the second one.

This one's only 11 vertical pictures stitched together.

2nd one is alot nicer. The right side of the 1st is useless IMO. Its just a big blob of black.

The 2nd is very nice The 1st does suffer from being a bit dark, maybe a quick levels adjust? Although that will probably blow out the lightest part of the sky but I think the 1st would be great if you could brighten the right side somehow

I agree with you Tom,
I just lost too much while trying to lighten the dock. It would probably be a good HDR pano

I think that my Pentax would have been the better camera for both of these. However I loaned it to my mom for a week so I was stuck using my Sigma.

It's nice knowing that both cameras have their place in my collection

The 1st is dark but interesting. I like the second a lot.

Interesting idea to try a HDR pano. I guess you would take 3 exposures at each camera position, merge the 3 and make a jpeg and then merge the different jpegs at each camera position?

There is a working fishing harbor near me that I think I can get across the harbor and have been wanting to try a pano there. Maybe a early morning with still water would make it interesting; and HDR would help to draw out the shodow details. hmmm. sounds like fun.

I love learning and seeing the way different people are doing pictures on this forum.

Stu, these are awfully nice. Of course I'm a sucker for pictures around water and docks, but these are particularly enjoyable.

Colors

I like them both.. With the only thing being on the first what most have said (being on the dark side)...

I do love the colors in them though Stu.. The reds and oranges are beautiful... The 2nd is very pretty.. I could literally stare at it for a couple hours.....

Makes me wish I was there enoying it!!! We don't get that red of sunsets very often here...

Great shots!!!! Thanks for sharin... Kim

Like everyone else. The first one is a little too dark. The second one looks fantastic. I like the colors very much.

Now theres an interesting workflow Its a shame you couldnt do a pano of RAW images and then HDR. Or vice versa. You would need a computer size of your fridge/ freezer though!, probably, only take about a week to render
