Bundamba, Ipswich
General location: Australia, South-East Queensland

The Setup:

This is the former site of some industrial buildings at Bundamba. Bunnings has bought the entire block.

Wandering home from the train station after a night out, I put my camera through the fence to snap these nine images. They are stitched together using Microsoft ICE (Image Composite Editor).

The camera & lens:

Camera: Sony RX100 II
Lens: Sony RX100M2 fixed lens 10.4-37.1mm f/1.8-4.9 (28-105mm equivalent) @ 10.4mm
Exposure: 0.5" @ f/1.8, ISO 3200 (Manual exposure due to keep exposure consistent through the panorama)

Post processing:

First attempt to stitch with Hugin. I've had some good experiences with Hugin in the past, but with my new camera, we've started to have a disagreement. Hugin is very configurable, but no matter what I do, I can't get a good stitch - I think it's to do with particular properties of this camera and lens.

Second attempt using Microsoft ICE (Image Composite Editor). ICE is less configurable - it either works or it doesn't. Luckily for me, it has worked on this set.

Crop out any blank areas.

To make the colours a bit more interesting, in the basic panel, presence: clarity +20, vibrance +30, saturation +20

I like the colours on the left, however they got a bit washed out. Graduated filter, contrast +100

High ISO means high noise. Noise reduction, luminance +40

Finished picture.
