Gigapan Pro + Canon 7D + 18-55...


After the charms of the Realejo (www.gigapan.org/gigapans/70332/ ) we headed into town. This is the Plaza Nuevo which is Tourist Ground Zero being at the base of the hills containing the Alhambra, the Realejo and Albayczin and a stone's trhow from the Cathedral. This area is full of the type of restaurants that have pictures of the food they serve outside, but it is surprisingly inexpensive to grab a coke etc here.

This image was especially difficult to get right and as you can see there is still room for improvement. I don't know why this image should be so hard to get right as I treated it in the normal way - you know - load the source images into the tone-mapping software then stab buttons at random until I get what I want whilst all the time complaining loudly that the inventor of HDR was a moron. It's almost as though the program can't read my mind. Bizarre! Well, that's computers for you. In a rush now - hopefully will find time to sort this out later.

    Generous with your praise as ever David - thank you. I am still undecided about this image. I never did get around to trying to get a better rendering, but the tone-mapping software I use has recently been improved so I might have another go.

    May I add my two-bits-worth to this discussion by making the astute observation that this is a unique GigaPan ... printed only a bit lighter would produce something worthy of be posted in a museum: gigapan.org/gigapans/90110/

    It is strange, even for a tone-mapped image. I hated it when I uploaded it but it is growing on me. As with all my tone-mapped gigapans, the basic idea is not to make a pretty picture pe se although that is an objective, but to bring out the details. I think you will find that despite the weird overall look, if you zoom in that locally the details are clear.

    This one has gone very strange, I hope your experiments with tone-mapping calm down a bit soon.
