Corporate dominators part IX by grassiekuik Corporate dominators part IX by grassiekuik
The last one out of Corporote dominators in Amsterdam
I'ts an 11 image stitch

I'm really satisfied about this one because there are not stitching errors. I finally think i know how i can get rid of them a bit.

Workflow panoramas:

  • Canon EOS 40D and sigma 10-20 to create 11 Horizontal shots

  • Lightroom to create 3 exposures (ev-1 ev0 ev1) of every single RAW file

  • Lightroom to export all as TIFF

  • PTGUI to create 3 panoramas

  • Photoshop to crop images for first time (using recorded action)

  • Photomatix to create the(5) different HDR’s

  • Photoshop to stack layers

  • Photoshop to add layer styles

  • Lightroom to do some minor postprocessing (mostly color editing)

  • Neatimage to sharpen and reduce noise

  • Photoshop to paste name tag and save as JPG

  • Upload to :devart:

This photograph is very beautiful. I can appreciate the hard work that goes into stitching images together, and 11 (!) of them is a lot of work. I'm impressed. :)

The first and most important aspect of this picture that I'd like to comment on is the colors. The rich bronzes, muted yellows, and finishing greys of the overcast sky give this picture immense depth, richness and character, while at the same time, highlighting a particular feeling, a sobering and serious mood. The particular colors chosen / photographed communicate this very, very well. A smaller but well-placed part of the colors in this image is the use of the blues in the windows - adds a crucial little pinch of brightness to the shot that I think is very well placed.

Secondly, I believe that the composition of this picture adds a wonderful and refreshing variety to it - while there is a central focus, there are a lot of interesting things happening behind the building in the middle of the picture. The building behind it at the top right is very cool looking, and the rest of them give this picture an excellent backdrop that tells a bit more of a story.

The curve of the image, especially along the ground, gives this picture a level of dimension that works very well with the actual depth of field. I really, really like how the benches are placed in different levels of depth and I think that aspect of it adds another level of interest to the picture.

Overall, this is a picture that is great because of the many elements that come together in it, and I believe it's very well done. :) Great work, I'll be :+devwatch:ing you! ;)
