Gotten beta versions of Lightroom and Photoshop CS3 and relooked at one of the more dull pano I have, the Millenia Tower one and applied some preset effect (Darktone +105) in Lightroom then used CS3, adjusted some Levels and here’s a more interesting 360 Pano. Then applied noise ninja, as you can see, with my Canon 350D at ISO 1600, the panos are rather noisy… all took 10 mins. They’re some kick arse products!
Here’s the same Pano of one of the Clarke Quay shot I like quite a bit applied with Orton Effect.
A short holiday from work to relax at Rasa Sentosa Resort, Sentosa. A full screen no nonsense pano comparing it to the one on the official Rasa Sentosa Resort websit. The photographer who took it cheated! Using a Sentosa logo to cover the nadir (bottom image where the tripod will be) so as to do lesser editing work and using Java will cause problem which I will not go through here. Enjoy this pano. The official Rasa Sentosa’s ones are here.
“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.
