Wallpaper 16:9 – a day in Eastern Frisia (in the north west of Lower Saxony)


post production…..

Last summer I was in Scandinavia for three weeks. The day Anders Breivik killed 70 young socialist at the island utoya and bombed the gov.-quarter inOslo we didn’t hear about it ’cause we were in the mountains. There I shot a panorama of Sognefjellet (a part of Jotunheimen which are the highest mountains in Norway). The high contrast the lights made were difficult to capture (particularly if you want to shoot a HDR when the clouds are moving so fast and the tripod is not the best….

When I came home I tried the first stitch (1) and made some corrections – hmmm the result wasn’t that good – look at the clouds (crop 1). A few weeks ago I started a second try (2 and crop 2). The first thing was that I corrected the aperture in RAW then I stitched the images (5 pieces) and afterwards some editing in CS 4…

What did I learn: I need some more time to shoot to utilize the performance of my camera so I can save a lot of time in post production – and I need a better tripod (done!)…

Next start for a project is tomorrow. We’ll have a little vacation at the North Sea. I want some magic light 😉

btw. I’ll print the stitch in 170 x 70 cm when I’m back!

btw I never lived to see such a bad weather in Norway in my whole life (and I’ve been a lot of times up there)…
