Stables at Castle Książ #2

Behind the open door at the centr lies the subject of the previous post. This is a manual blend of three exposures @1.5 EV.


Stables at Castle Książ

We visited Castle Książ a couple of times before, but this time went inside to see the interiors - pretty disappointing, but good for trying high dynamic range photography. But the castle stables we visited at the end of the day were quite interesting. More photographs to follow.

While the last picture was from archives, todays post features a very fresh one - taken 5hrs ago. An umbrella came handy and I wish I had warmer trousers ;)

A couple of firsts

A first no. 1: this post is being published on an Linux desktop system (Ubuntu)
A second first: all workflow for the image below was made with opensource tools including RAW conversion.
A third first: I went out to try my new panorama head.

This park mosaic image was made using 50mm lens on EOS 30D, 9 exposures.
Some initial thoughts:
When light is changing, it is essential to work fast, because exposure parameters will change from frame to frame. ergo - use Wide angles, not short telephoto.

The resulting panorama was stitched in Hugin, and the process was automatic. The file is 500MB uncompressed...
The final image was cropped to taste (to roughly 6000 x 6000 pixels) and processed to resemble Technicolor. Web version is scaled to 1000x1000. Clik on the image to enlarge.

Ladies and Gentlemen, we're proud to let you know that a photograph by my dear wife has graced the cover of Z:A magazine. The photo was taken during an archi trip to Netherlands and features a printing works facade. And inside ... (judge the book by its cover) ... is her article on contemporary industrial architecture.
