Maui Haleakalā Crater Panorama

Three-shot panorama of the crater from 10,000 feet up. This volcano is considered still active, but it hasn’t erupted for over 100 years. When it does, however, eruptions aren’t explosive and the lava flows slowly, so people have the opportunity to walk out of the way. The car started to struggle at 9k feet. I did not have the tools/ability to stitch these together in 2010 but have revisited in 2013 using Hugin. These stitched together automatically with no adjustments required.

Abandoned Valley Building Site

This is a panorama of a really narrow alley and building site in Fortitude Valley. This is stitched from 15 images, and there are some stitching errors because of the tight confines and really wide-angle shots. Hugin found about 2900 control points and I added a few hundred more manually.

Goodwill Bridge Pano

This is my third attempt to get a panoramic photo from this location. First two were taken during the day but stitching was almost impossible: The spans on the left-hand side of the picture are long and relatively featureless. I decided to try it at night, where dappled light is available, and this proved more successful. Shooting took two hours (bracketed long exposure plus careful recomposition for each shot). I still had to zoom in to 100% to find distinguishing features to stitch together - it came down to counting dots along the span, at times.

Surfers Paradise South Pano

We stayed in an apartment at the Gold Coast for the weekend. It wasn't much of a holiday: Evelyn was sick and Lui was studying all weekend. I also forgot my tripod, so for this shot I went hand-held.

Story Bridge Panorama

This is a 23-shot panorama from the park under the Story Bridge. I rode over from work during my lunch break, with my camera and tripod strapped on, and shot this as quickly as I could before riding back. I used Hugin to process this, and it didn't go as smoothly as I'd hoped (see post processing comments).

Brisbane Riverside Panorama

This is my first experiment with Hugin to generate a panorama. The image is made up of 12 source images. I originally shot this as a 9-bracketed exposure HDR as well but that didn't work out so well. Definitely will try the HDR panorama on something else next time.
