ANZAC Day, Sydney, NSW, Australia
NIKON D750 + 16.0-35.0 mm f/4.0 @ 16 mm, 1 sec at f/8, ISO 1000
Gerry and I headed down to Circular Quay, The Opera House and the Cahill Expressway to shoot what turned out to be a very nice twilight and sunrise. It was looking very iffy before twilight but right on cue the clouds came in and saved the day.ripods with a great view from the steps across Martin Place.
Up on the Cahill Expressway the morning turned awesome around 6:20AM (right on sunrise) and it was another chance to test out my new 28-300mm travel lens as a landscape photographers tool. Here this six frame panorama taken at 28mm is stitched in the new Adobe Lightroom CC (using the Merge to Panorama feature).
Both the lens and LR did a pretty fine job I reckon.
I did however find a bit of weirdness with LR tho. The previews for the different projections (spherical, cylindrical and perspective) were all quite different to the end results of selecting those options.
I actually much preferred the "preview" version of perspective (the preview said I'd get a nice wider rectangular result with no real distortion) but the massive bow tie end result was what I was actually expecting from this projection but it totally didn't match the preview).
Likewise cylindrical looked good in preview but had a crap almost fisheye distorted end result.
Strangely this is the spherical projection which didn't quite look like this in preview but actually gave the best end result for this image.
Anyone know what strangeness is going on with LR's Panorama mode?
Whilst you're at it - I don't know why my LR CC is noticeably SLOWER than LR 5 was - performance gains my a$$ (yes GPU accel is on in my LR).
