Thanks Mister, hope to meet up someday. What are you using for a head. I have a Manfrotto 303SPH and a handful of Canon 40D's.

I will run through the raw images again and check... 5DmkII. I also suspect filter reflection, it tends to have that greenish tint.

AngelesCrest (Over 1 year ago)
Yea, at 0.2Gpixel, 100mm would be about right. I think the filter is most likely the place to start, but what bothers me is it seems to be broken in two color bands, and is inverted (as seen in the blue ghost of the (57?) freeway over the water tanks. So it might be a reflection off the front element onto the filter. I think the low angle (elevation) might add to the strength of the effect as well. I've largely stopped using filters in digital, so this is something I would find hard to replicate. So if you find out more, I'd be glad to hear about it... PS: The noise level looks fine, what body were you using?

garretbaquet (Over 1 year ago)
Correction 100mm. Another possibility for any noise would be Sensor heat from the long exposures... Your thoughts?

garretbaquet (Over 1 year ago)
Possible answer: The vertical light areas are likely from lens vignetting... I am pretty sure that I used lens correction... but it's the first time I have ever used this lens 400mm Canon at 400mm... haven't had time to calibrate any settings. Since it wasn't my lens, I left the u/v filter on it... have noticed that sometimes filters reflect bright spots back through the lens. Maybe boosted the noise a bit much recovering shadow detail. :) 30 second exposure f6.3 ISO 100

Thanks David! I really enjoy shooting these panoramas, I wouldn't nearly shoot as many, or any at all, if it weren't for photosynth.net. I really appreciate the fact that you guys/gals provide an end to end solution for the creation, upload, presentation and distribution of wonderful and unique rich media. The best part is when people see a photosynth for the first time and their eyes light up... It seems to liberate an inner child that is seeing the world in a new way. :) Seriously thought... my pre-production planning and gear selection are increasingly dictated by my urges to shoot more elaborate, detailed and technically complex panoramas... Thanks again!

Garret -- very cool subject, just like all your others.... Love it. I think we may need to dedicate the front page of Photosynth.net to some of your great stuff for a few days soon...

I was lucky timing! My friend said I should shoot out the fire escape, not 'on' the fire escape... but... that's really just semantics. ;) He isn't a big fan of altitude. I will never forget his look of 'Dude, are you really making me get close to this window.'
