Ta Prohm: before I left

Ta PromWhile we were touring Cambodia, we had to visit the famous Ta Prohm temple. (Lara Croft, anyone?) It’s just amazing to see how the tall, beautiful trees there are one with the ancient, dilapidated buildings.

As we left the temple, I glanced back the way we came, and saw the crumbling structures, the swaying trees, the absorbed tourists. I felt like capturing it all, so I clicked a series of shots thinking of assembling a panorama from them later. I still have to process most of the photos I clicked there, but this panorama was one of the first ones I worked on! I used Hugin to stitch 4 photographs for this one, and had to use quite a few post-processing skills later ( πŸ˜› ) to remove duplicate people and solidify ghostly ones. πŸ˜‰ It isn’t a 360˚ (or even a 180˚) view, but I like how it reflects everything that my eyes saw then.

For SL-Week: Panorama.

  1. If you have a windows the also free microsoft ICE could be easier to use. I tried hugin but it was so complicated so I imaginte the work you did to create for us that pano… lovely vastness of blue and green.

    • Thank you, Francis! And thanks for that info, I’ll give ICE a try sometime! I usually don’t use Windows much. πŸ™‚
      I do like the options that Hugin provides! πŸ˜‰ The main stitching was pretty good, in fact — it also evened out the slight color differences from varying light in the photographs. The ghostly / duplicate people were because they were moving, but I guess with still scenes, Hugin would do okay with default settings.
      But… I’ll definitely play with ICE when I can. πŸ™‚

  2. That was very well done πŸ™‚ Looks like a lot of effort went into this. I am still struggling with Gimp and now you tell me about another one… hmmm.. Might have to try this sometime.

    • Thank you KG! Yeah it was a bit of work on the moving people. Times when I wish I had one of those time-stopping superpowers so they were all still… πŸ˜‰
      Haha, good luck and have fun if you do try Hugin!
