Outback Panos

Well, stitching panoramas is a new thing for me. Up until now it’s possible I was just too lazy, or didn’t have the right equipment. So here are the results of 4000 k’s on the road in western Qld, experimenting with the 5D2 and Nodal Ninja head. Shooting panoramas, you actually have to think about what your doing, no more point and shoot style! As always, feedback is appreciated!

  3. Hi Dan, well you caught up quick because these are great panoramas.

    Ok, you asked for feedback, quick and dirty:

    1) Great composition. Whole image looks very magenta, might fix that.

    2) Very nice but it lacks just a bit more clouds and general interest

    3) Great pano, great look but I think composition could be approved. If you have the road from the bottom right corner as you do, then try running the road right across the image to the left upper thirds, creates more dynamics in the image.

    4 & 5) Yup. Already commented on these, stunning!

    6) Harsh light so I think the composition perhaps needs to be a bit stronger to counter.

    7) I think I commented on this before in an earlier post?

    Dan, you really made me want to drive to outback Queensland. When I get back to Cairns after PNG in November I am seriously considering hitting this lovely wide open space!

  5. What Flemming said!

    Great work Dan, its quite amazing how good PTGUI is, mate half the time I shoot without even setting up the tripod.

    Those nodal ninjas are cool, check out my budget version. CF was mighty impressed when he saw it.


    Cheers mate.

      Thanks Darren, I would be taking the 4×4 if I was you mate! If you take a car/van your options would be fairly limited as to where you can get to.

  11. When I saw the first one I thought it was shot on film, I really like a magenta colour cast on that one. All strong images 🙂
