Location: Off Haugesund (25 m)      by: Jan Lindgaard Rasmussen
Area: Norway      Date: 2015-08-03, 20:41
The last pano from a trip to the Faroes in 2015. When sailing home, strong eastern winds had us going for shelter along the norwegian west coast. As the pano off Shetland (#22040) earlier in the day showed, the weather was quite bad, so I didn't have high expectations for the norwegian approach. As we neared, the fog and clouds dissolved just enough to get a decent view to Norway, if still somewhat hazy. I wasn't that impressed (although I always like looking at Norway :-) until I got home and found out that the farthest views exceeded 100 km. What we see is roughly the lands between Bergen and Stavanger, and the landscapes of Hordaland and Rogaland.

Pano made from 28 pics (RAW), 300 mm, iso-200, f/6,3, 1/800 s, developed in DPP (daylight, neutral, ALO off, moderate sharpness), stitched in PTgui pro, black- and whitepoint regulated in GIMP, downscaled and sharpened in Irfanview.

Description and labels in progress, more in the evening...

Sehr gut gemacht und sicher nicht einfach, bei der großen Brennweite vom fahrenden Schiff aufzunehmen. Beim Scrollen wird man vom roten Schiff überrascht.

Jan, how do you stitch this when there are almost no match points?

Well done, but the ocean looks really dark on my screen.

@Jens, Mentor & Friedemann: 
Hello Jens: A reload with slightly less dark water.

Hello Friedemann and Mentor: Because of the slightly shaky boat, I was a bit slow at shooting the pictures; there is more than a minute between the first and the last. Immediately afterwards I took a snapshot of the ships infoscreen, which contained position, speed etc. It was going 17,6 knots, so when calculating with 60 seconds, that gives appr. 550 m, that the ship was moving during shooting. When stitching there wasn't any autogenerated control points, so, hard work with manual setting: pictures in 100%, and look for distinct marks in the landscape. 2 control points on every pair is enough, if they are put on right. Even at these distances, the speed made every control point slightly uneven, so at first one gets a snake-like pano. Then my method is to simply cheat the stitcher by moving one of the points very little to either right or left, until it gets straight. Heinz has another method of simply glueing them without controlpoints, as described on among others #3032, 4711, 14002, 15552. I haven't yet tried it out, but will try to look into it.

Jan, mir gefiel das schon in der ersten Fassung sehr gut mit diesen sensationellen Aufnahmen.
Gewundert hatte ich mich, woher Du die Position des Schaiffes hattest. Jetzt ist es klar.
Jan, wenn man keine normalen Kontrollpunkte setzen kann, dann habe ich verschiedene Methoden angewendet, auch bei den von Dir genannten Panoramen. Bei #22065 hatte ich für die Bilder zwischen Oie und Usedom wieder gar keine Kontrollpunkte gehabt und sie durch verändern Yaw-, Pitch- und Roll-Werte in eine passende Position gebracht.

Sehr gute Arbeit und weite Entfernungen aus sehr geringer Höhe.
