…and it’s weird to see the horizon after 2 weeks of snow-capped mountains.
Between getting the jeep stuck and almost having to walk out of the mountains in Idaho and getting chased off by a moose, I managed to take almost 25G of images. Now comes the processing, most of the data is destined for panoramas. This one ate my laptop for lunch (crashed it twice…only 4gig of ram). More as I find time to stitch.
The “Original” size here is about 20% of the full image rez I managed for print. I can’t wait to see how the series from Black Canyon stitch together. What a view, 2250 feet straight down a sheer rock wall to the river below! It was vertigo-inducing. I didn’t have time to stick around and snap pics of the 2 climbers who were scoping the place out for a descent, they were planning on going over the ledge the next day.April 4, 2011 at 2:13 am #40101Plamadude30kParticipant
That’s a great pano-really cool location. What software do you use for stitching panoramas? I’ve never found anything that works well consistently.April 4, 2011 at 2:45 am #40102
I’ve been using Hugin’s Panorama Creator in Ubuntu 10.10 (it has windows and mac ports as well). Most panoramas I feed through it need no intervention as long as the source images are in a single line. Multiple rows of images have always required me to add control points manually, which has become surprisingly quick now that I’m used to the interface. It will also handle large files, the 16-bit full-rez .exr version of that image was over 3gig.April 4, 2011 at 11:58 am #40103orionidParticipant
Speechless. Wow.April 4, 2011 at 1:32 pm #40104CuriousParticipant
WOW is certainly the word.April 4, 2011 at 3:59 pm #40105olavfParticipant
awesome!April 4, 2011 at 4:42 pm #40106CauseISaidSoParticipant
Very cool, chup. Also looking forward to seeing the Black Canyon series.April 4, 2011 at 9:23 pm #40107
You folks are a real ego boost! 😆 Thanks!
Hopefully I’ll have some energy to do things tonight with a few images, but this is the first break I’ve had since 5AM today. I’m in my 12th hr at work. Ugh.April 4, 2011 at 9:48 pm #40108olavfParticipant
I’ve got the day off, but I’ve also got over 600 pictures to go through from the weekend. And then resize and album-ize. I hear ya.April 4, 2011 at 10:08 pm #40109ravnosticParticipant
Excellent scene chupa. Really very nice!April 5, 2011 at 2:56 am #40110kashariParticipant
Holy smokes, that’s awesome! I haven’t tried any stitched panos yet, but maybe one of these days.April 6, 2011 at 4:51 am #40111
Black Canyon of the Gunnison:
I had to crop a lot of the foreground out, sadly. I really should buy myself a proper panohead if I’m going to continue doing panoramic landscapes.April 6, 2011 at 5:07 am #40112
One more, and off to bed…
Single frame, 3 exposures. That’s 2250 feet of solid unbroken vertical stone between the rim and the river.April 6, 2011 at 5:36 am #40113ravnosticParticipant
Wow. These are really nice. I like that they look much like what you see when you visit such places–but can never quite capture in a photograph–except, of course, you did. Very subtle HDRing paid off here. The realism–and yet, the surrealism–is awesome.April 6, 2011 at 7:35 am #40114CauseISaidSoParticipant
Wow. That first one is, and I don’t use this word lightly, stunning.
