My Block in new Colors

360_final_tiny_myblknewcolors.jpg

My Block repainted with new color scheme. At night…

First pano taken using my Sigma 18 – 200 @ 18mm throughout. More photos needed but it works. Same settings with the Nodal Ninja 3. No need to change anything on the rails at all, that’s over Rail 41 and Upper Rails 93, in case you’re interested.

If the weather is good tomorrow, a 360 pano I have been thinking of..

Adobe Lightroom and CS3

360_final_cs3_lightrm_tiny.jpg

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!

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.

Crashed

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!

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.
