PhotoFriday – ‘Metropolis’

This week’s Photo Friday entry: ’Metropolis’

For this weeks theme I was in half a mind to use a photo of a busy reef scene, however when I looked up on wikipedia, the definition of a metropolis is most certainly only cites for people…. boo! Not to be disheartened, I get to show you three photos from metropolis around the world that I have loved. Firstly, above, Singapore, photographed at night from Marina Bay. Next up is New York and last but certainly not least is my fair city, London.

You can see more non-underwater travel photo galleries here.

If you want to see my underwater photos from various places then check out the galleries in my Reef Beasties Gallery. Or my best from 2012 here.

PhotoFriday – ‘Inner City’

This week’s Photo Friday entry: ’Inner City’

Funny this should be the theme today because I was only talking about my 2008 trip to New York with someone yesterday. I loved New York! The view above is a hand handed ten image stitched panorama shot from the empire state building. Click on the images to see them much larger.

PhotoFriday – ‘Public Space’

This week’s Photo Friday entry: ’Public Space’

This week’s theme is Public Space and for some reason my mind went straight to images of New York City. It’s been a while since we went there (2008, how time flies) but even now I remember vividly how great their many public spaces are. My favourites were Grand Central station, Time Square, and MoMA.

New York Panoramas!

Yay for Photoshop CS3! Mike has built himself a new super duper pc whose boundaries he clearly wasn’t pushing… what better way to ‘test’ it than try and merge 11 full size D300 RAW files in photoshop :-D It only got a little upset with me, for the most part it churned away and allowed me to produce panoramas that my little teeny-tiny laptop would have been crushed under.

They look better at a bigger size (click the photos for a larger view)!

Above is an 11 image stitch of the view of New York from the Staten Island Ferry. Unfortunately the ferry was moving and the boat in the photo was also moving so see if you can spot the mistake in the stitch where the auto merge didn’t quite get it right?

Helipad, New York 2008

This is just around the corner from State street (we actually went to NY to work but that didn’t stop me wandering around with my camera before and after work)! I think this is a 4 or 5 photo stitch.

View from Empire State Building 2008

This is 9 photos. I like this one because it seems like an unfinished jigsaw (I could have done the jigsaw pattern in photoshop but it seemed a little cheesy). I have more of these Empire State building ones to process …. stay tuned.
