I always feel a little more elbow room with a panorama.  Digital makes it soo much easier to create them.  With landscapes it tells a more complete story.

Clear Sky Sunset

We’ve had a lot of days the past couple of months with northerly trades bringing in dryer air.  Makes for almost cloudless sunsets.  Of course having some clouds can add interesting color and shadow to the sunset. Not on this particular occasion.

Slice and Dice

I’ve been using the panorama option with my new a77 M2, and getting good results. Recently, I went out to get sunset shots along the coast of my neighborhood. I got this image. Do you see the interesting effect I unknowingly created? ;-0

Kona Clouds

For the past month we’ve had light trades and hot days.  Today it was just hot. Today the trades died and for awhile this morning it went Kona.  That meant the clouds you see are moving left to right angled towards me. The normal trade wind flow would angle them away from me. The trades will be coming back next week.  For this weekend it’s fans and air conditioners. Enjoy the last weekend of summer!

Rain Behind Olomana

I took a series of portrait shots almost a year ago to create this panorama.  They’ve been dormant on my hard drive, waiting for me to rediscover them.

Summer Squall

Summer Squall

Talk about take it and forget it.   I grabbed a series of shots for a panorama of this rain squall over Kaneohe on a July day in 2011.

Overdevelopment

This isn’t a complaint about construction.   In this case it refers to what happens when trades are light and the land in central Oahu heats up during the day.  Clouds build up and heavy downpours can occur.  Hang gliders and paragilders avoid these conditions. Updrafts under these clouds can ruin their day.

RAW or JPG

A continuous source of discussion is to ask do you shoot RAW or JPG. Either is a valid option. One can be a better choice in a given situation than the other.   Here’s a situation for which I’m glad I shot RAW.  This is  a panorama I created from a series of photos I took five years ago.  At the time I wasn’t thinking of making a panorama. DUH!  The cloud formation attracted my attention. In addition the water was calm and reflective. Fortunately, I had my 17-35mm lens on and had worked the scene for several images at the widest angle. By doing so, I inadvertently provided myself with enough images for a panorama five years later. (Which is a good tip to keep in mind in the future!) In addition, I shot in RAW, so I could manipulate the images without worrying about loss of image quality. Remember, RAW contains all the original data recorded by the sensor while JPG throws out data at the time of creation because it compresses the data.  What you see here is a high quality JPG image from the Photoshop file created by blending the original RAW shots together to make the panorama.  Would this image be perceptively worse if the original images had been JPG’s? Viewing on a computer monitor perhaps not. However, if you wanted to print (Yes, he did use the P word) this and put it on a wall, the higher the quality the better the color gamut and the larger a print you can make.
