Vancouver, Pano's only!

Discussion in 'Landscapes, Architecture, and Cityscapes' started by lexiticus, Jul 15, 2008.

  1. Went to Vancouver for 5 days, awesome weather for pictures so here they are!

    This thread is panoramics ONLY, I took quite a few while I was there, and these are some of my favorites!

    First few are all Infrared, taken with a modified D70, Last ones are Taken with the D300, and mostly the Sigma 10-20mm.
    The pics include Vancouver and the backroute there (Spences Bridge, Lytton, Lillooet, Pemberton, Whistler and Squamish)

    Wow lexiticus, shots are awesome ! Composition is great, tehnically perfect :)  Nice !
     
  6. Thanks :)  It was an amazing trip for scenery, I took way more Pano's than even I normally do!
    Haha, they look neat all lined up because I fit the 3:1 ratio for printing :) 
     
  7. Now that is some real killer stuff .. Very good Work!
     
  8. Wow!!! Nicely done!
     
  9. Excellent panos!! Very nicely done.
    Especially the tree pano! I would have never thought about doing that.

    The only nitpick I have is some of the building look like they will topple. :D

    Great panos. I love them all. I gotta learn how to do this stuff.

  11. Ya I wasn't sure how to fix that without skewing the other buildings, So I just left it :) 

    The Tree pano if you ever try one like it, works best at 14mm (x1.5 crop) That way you can get 3:1 and keep just enough ground in the pictures.

    Making a panorama is very easy to do nowadays.

    Creating works of art like you have in these images is truly an accomplishment !

    Congrats !
     
  14. Wow, very nice. The tree pano is very artisitic, good vision.
     
  15. Thanks again! It has taken me a couple of years to get comfortable shooting and visualizing panoramics, But now it feels like everywhere I go I want to shoot one :)

    Very nice. I like the one you did from Grouse, I posted one a while back too, but that was taken back when there was snow.
     
  17. Ya I remembered that! Your post is half the reason I went up to Grouse Mountain! I hadn't realized that there was such a good view of the city from there.

    I took the shot with my IR camera to help cut through the haze hence why its B+W. Even though I went up on a day with the least haze, it was still enough to make the pictures a little flat.

    Wow, cool. I just love the view from up there. On nice days while coming down the main run, I'll just stop and sit there for a while and enjoy. It's hard to cut down the haze. Best bet would probably to try a cold winter day.

    There was one time that I went up to snowboard and the city below was covered in fog. But up on the mountain it was perfectly clear. It was like you were on a cloud castle! I'm aching to get a photo of that but it hasn't happened since.

    Excellent series and very nice night shots!
     
  20. Sweet, I had a bit lesser version of that happen before. Though From Grouse it would have looked waay more amazing because of the wide field of view you can get!
