Playing with Panoramas

1 Oct

Having finally been forced to sort through my many hundreds of photos from Australia in order to work out what to submit for the photograph competition, I’ve had a chance to play with some of the exciting panorama software I got free with my camera. Here are the results: I thought they were quite pretty.

Natural Bridge

The stunning Natural Bridge in Springbrook National Park

This is the one I submitted for the photo competition. The amazingness of my relatively cheap digital camera (a Nikon Coolpix S3100 if anyone’s interested) still hasn’t quite sunk in! I think if it had been a sunny day, this picture would have been total perfection.

“Best of All” Lookout

View from the "Best of All" Lookout on the border with New South Wales

This is the view across the border into New South Wales – you can see Mount Warning on the right. I’m very pleased with this as it’s captured the ruggedness of the landscape and the speckly-yellow of the fields very nicely.

Twin Falls Lookout

View from the Twin Falls lookout - the climb was so worth it!

I think this one is my favourite, mainly because it involves the most pictures being successfully stitched together (5). This was the view from the Twin Falls lookout at the end of our fairly long climb up the mountainside after visiting the waterfalls at the bottom. It just goes to show that the climb in the fairly uncomfortable early afternoon heat was definitely worth it! If it was possible to zoom in sufficiently on this photograph, you’d realise that we could see all the way back to Surfer’s Paradise and the ocean beyond from this high up, which I thought was pretty impressive. As you can see, John (on the right) was equally amazed by this fact!


These last two are both from Sydney: one in the daytime and one in the night-time.

View from Sydney Harbour Bridge (shame about the lack of sunshine!)

This is the view of the Opera House, the CBD and Circular Quay from the middle of the Harbour Bridge. I was rather annoyed that it had been a sunny day until about five minutes before I took this! Sydney definitely remains lovely nonetheless 🙂

Sydney Harbour Bridge and the Opera House from Circular Quay

This one was taken from somewhere along Circular Quay after sunset. I think the software has slightly altered the distances and angles between the bridge and the Opera House, so this isn’t an entirely accurate photographic replica of the scene, but I still like it!

I’m actually quite proud of these pictures considering they were my first attempts at what could be labelled as “professional” style photography – it just goes to show that you don’t need an SLR and thousands of pounds worth of lens equipment to make decent panoramic photographs!
