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


Following a discussion about the pros and cons of tone-mapping at www.gigapan.org/gigapans/61014/ I was reminded by Texas_Photo of a tone-mapped snapshot of Pulteney Bridge in Bath (tinyurl.com/24nywj4 Will open in a new tab or window/) that I sent him some time ago and which he really liked. Then it dawned on me that I had returned a few days later to try and take a tone-mapped gigapan of the same scene but I couldn't remember having uploaded it. So here it is. As you can see it doesn't have the wonderfully ghastly colours of the original and perhaps that is no bad thing :-) For myself I find images like this, "Beyond the Spectrum" or "BtS" as Texas_Photo put it so well, very moreish. I really ought to configure some sort of mechanism that delivers stong electric shocks whenever I press the BtS button on my computer. (Does the iPad have an app?). Having said that, I prefer the effects one can get from a grey sky like this www.gigapan.org/gigapans/64168/
This is the back of Pulteney Bridge. For the more usual view of the front see www.gigapan.org/gigapans/22509/ and www.gigapan.org/gigapans/7466/

    I very much like your HDRs where you avoid over-tonemapping them. Although that can be an artistic effect, I much prefer using HDR to mimic how the mind remembers a scene. For example, I'm a fan of www.gigapan.org/gigapans/61014/ but not so much of www.flickr.com/photos/47364066@N07 /5145782448 Will open in
a new tab or window/. I think my favourite is www.gigapan.org/gigapans/7466/. BTW, am I correct in believing www.gigapan.org/gigapans/22509/ is not HDR?

    I have added the photo to Panaramio and geocoded but despite doing this several days ago it does not appear to be available in GE yet. I wonder if the computer that examines images was confused by the tone-mapping? Maybe the computer thinks it is seeing an advert for Starbucks or a nude woman?

    As always, stunningly incredible, but I am a bit biased towards your Bath photos, panoramas and GigaPans. You should put the flikr photo on Google Earth so the entire world will see it and then the world may gravitate to Bath.
