Mt Mee

Stitched from 74 photographs in portrait mode.

I shot this on the way home from the Buderim Ginger Factory. We took back roads home as the Bruce Hwy is a really bad deal on a Sunday afternoon.

The original size version is up for perusal over here.

See where this picture was taken. [?]

    That's bloody awesome David!
    Did it take long for Photoshop to process all thos shots?
  • Andrew Durick said:

    Absolutely impressive David, a 74 photograph! :-)
    I also cannot look at a bigger size, would that be from my end?
  • David de Groot said:
    I did it in AutoPano Pro, followed by a bit of dodge and burn in Photoshop. The stitching took maybe 1.5 hours (on a Quad Core 2.4Ghz machine with 4Gb ram), and the dodge and burn maybe 1/2 hour of fiddling.
    No, but I can make a braided loaf ;-)
    One of my more ambitious attempts, that's for sure.
    I'm thinking on a clear day I should try doing it at 200mm instead of 70mm ;-)
    Thanks Matt :)
    I'll see what I can do about that. It's my end.

    Well worth the effort.

    Pretty impressive. Almost like one of those scenes where you're meant to find the odd thing out. But in real life.
  • David de Groot said:
    llama009 - Pretty much eh ? :)
  • Wes Cooper said:
    Excellent David. You should do a massive print to make the most of all that resolution. I have a pano that is around 70 images stitched that I shot at 200mm and it came up really well. Stitching was a nightmare though. Many times leaving it stitching overnight in CS3 to save in the morning!
  • David de Groot said:
    Indeed, but printing that size isn't cheap, and I have nowhere to hang something that big anyway ;-)

    Great work David! It is a wonderful landscape!

    Didn't turn out half bad, given the crappy weather that day.
