Mt Coot-tha Panorama by Bill

We went for coffee to the 'Koota' cafe this morning to meet friends. Just couldn't let the opportunity pass to make a panorama picture with four individual photos, stitched together with Elements 10 and enhanced with HDR Efex Pro 2.

View from Mt Coot-tha

It was a slightly overcast and hazy morning. (Click on the photo to enlarge)

Wilsons Lookout photos of the Storey Bridge, Brisbane by Rod


Essential bridge view with plenty of river boat action.  1/15 sec, f/4.0, ISO 400.



The Black & White pic turned out well I thought.  HDR from 1 sec, 2 sec & 4 second exposures, f/8, ISO 400.




Liked this because it shows bridge, nightlife along the shore and the river in use. The f/16 aperture made the lights sparkle.   2 sec, f/16, ISO 400





Zoomed in shows detailed bridge structure standing out from the mass of city buildings behind.
0.6 sec, f/5.6, ISO 400.



Without the pylons, the bridge would not stand.  3.2 sec, f/5.6, ISO 400.



The southern exit road off the bridge becomes lost in the mass of buildings but the tranquility of the river balances life here.  3.2 sec, f/5.6, ISO 400.



This our camera the group near the fence (while Michael & I were off "lost").  The last pic I took when everything was quite dark but the long exposure found the light.  15 seconds, f/8, ISO 400.
