“Rule #45238973, always hold on tight to your tripod and guard it with your life when taking Pano.” I was taking a pano right in front of the Merlion when some tourist accidently kicked my tripod. ISO1600 f/4 and at 1/10 sec, I thought, should be ok. WRONG WRONG WRONG! “Rule #7450965832, always retake when not sure!” It caused motion blur and there’s no way to have a nice pano. It’s ok, good reason to revisit Merlion for another Pano shoot soon. So here’s the Civilisation Museum and Anderson Bridge for now.
It was quite a fun trip today. Saw many photographers (some are in the pano) when I was taking the first Civilisation Museum pano shot. They should know or they’re thinking again, “why taking photo of the floor?” – now you know.
Needed to relax after a hard day’s work and what better ways to be doing that than taking PANO and some perspiring walking. Here’s Cavenagh Bridge and Fountain Square located near China Square Central. Both about 15 minutes walk from my office.
Been a long time since I’ve been in a playground. I mean, actually climbing the ladders and be in it! Took 2 Pano of the same playground.
Another playground area at Blk 987D Jurong West.
Finally, a small but long park opposite my blocks. Hidden behind the coffeeshop. A nice place.
An old Pano, taken along Telok Ayer Street. Did not take a separate nadir photos thus resorted to clone stamping. Bad nadir but now I know! (make a mental note…)
Good and bad thing. I recently crashed my file server at home but all’s well as it’s running RAID 5 and been a long time since I burn them to DVD so good time to upgrade. Replaced it with 2 x file servers (both RAID 5 of course!) and formatted the rig i used to generate all the pano you see as I found out it’s not the software(s) causing problems, it was the OS itself.
Here, some remake of the panos in better resolutions. Enjoy!

Big Open Space overseeing the new MRT Rails soon. This space is also home to some soccer players who actively play here.
I asked a collegue when passing by here on our way to a datacenter for a job, what “sk8”, I only heard of SKII? It’s SKATE lah, he said. haha blur me…
War Memorial. Read more about it here.
Here they are, the rest of the shots taken yesterday.
Beautiful Sunday today, great skies and a great place to be shooting at, Chinese Garden. This is dedicated to the people at Chinese Garden who saw me and must be thinking why is this crazy chinese guy photographer taking photos while turning around his tripod in circles and even tilted his camera to take photo of the floor and sky, i mean, i know the sky is blue and nice but the floor?! haha
Vivocity today again. main entrance as the last time there when taking the rooftop, the front fountain was under maintenance. Today, all’s up and really sunny!
Nope, I did not change a camera (yet!), this is taken in Tungsten White Balance, makes the places look “cooler”. Taken yesterday but only managed to have time to put it together and the nadir is really hard for this one.

On my way back after Vivocity, passed this park, had my stuffs so why not. I truely know now that even with a perfect Equirectangular image, exporting using Pano2QTVR can still give tons of error with grey images or odd colored tiles.

yep, 3 Pano attempts and all doing 360 doesn’t seem to be working fine. More tweaking later but here’s a 180 pano, eh… I mean 3 x 180 panos.
