Salzburg – Salzachufer

Sponsor: 7reasons

On September 3, 2011 I placed my new tripod at the Salzach riverside looking in direction of the Festung Hohensalzburg and the old quarter. The pano is made of 8 images and on each image position I used 5 brackets to cover the big differences of the backlight. I fuesd the images using a more or less nonrealistic colouring – everything is a little bit exaggerated. What is surprising is the fusing result of the trees. In fact it was massive windy, so actually I thought the fusing will fail here. On the other side the house front is a little bit wrong in color temperature, too blue… If you zoom to the maximum in the pano you see the 100% resolution of the used 8mm fisheye lens.

22 Sep.2011: I added one planar panorama shot from same location. You can reach this pano by clicking on the hotspot placed over the area covering the pano. I used a 85mm lens and in total I used 390 images to create 78 stacks of images. The stacks got HDR tonemapped with photomatix and the final images got stiched with APG 1.5.2 and rendered with APG 1.6.0 beta2. Main missing point at this pano are the color issues caused by the light. I did not use the sun lens hood. The color issues in the left sky area are caused by the stitching software, I finally could not figure out to prevent this, the source images does not hav this color differences…

The Pano was shot with a 8mm fisheye lens from Samyang. It contains 6 images to cover the sphere and on 7th image for the zenith. One final additional 8th image covers the nadir. Each image position contains 3 bracketed images.
