It is that time of year, again, when our camera club has its annual exhibition.
Our opening on Tuesday evening was a very happy occasion, and I am very proud of the work on display, both the individual images, and the exhibition as a whole. I am pleased to have four of my own images on display.
It occurred to me while I was taking a series of record shots in the gallery to wonder if I could do a panorama of the whole room and show every one of the 71 images in its context. I took nine high-resolution 40 megapixel images and then used the photomerge to panorama feature of Photoshop to create the finished image. The original image is huge at almost 1.5 Gigagbytes. The room is a simple rectangle and this composite includes about 320 degrees, showing everything except the entrance door. Whether it works or not is for you to decide. I like it.
Later in the morning the siren song of the sea drew me to Palmer head just as the container ship ANL Echuca was arriving and taking on the pilot. A stiff Northerly was whipping the wake of the pilot vessel Tarakena away to the South.
In Lyall Bay, the same North/South conflict was occurring. I have always liked the way the waves adapt themselves to the curve of the bay giving images of the wave crests seemingly at right angles to each other.
That’s all for today.
