    India panoramic photos

    Hello! I want to show some of my panoramas, which I've made during my trip to India in the winter of 2009. I spent one month there, traveling from South to North.Delhi, Agra (Taj Mahal) Ahmedabad, Gwalior, Chandigarh, Munnar, Mumbai.. My interest is architectural and landscape photography. Taking some of these photos was a whole story to take. All these shots were made by panoramic Gaoersi 617 camera.

    Great shots. Can you give more details of the camera, I've not heard of it.

    Cheers

    All very nice and look better when viewed in the Lighbox.

    #3 is my favourite and #5. What is the history of the building in #5. It looks like an ancient fortress. In #2 what kind of trees.

    Wendy, 5 is Gwalior fort. Gwalior is fantastic city! 2 - Those fruit trees are near Taj Mahal - on the other side of the river. Thank you!

    Great images. Did you crop those (especially 4, 5, and 6) or was that how you captured the image?

    Re: India panoramic photos

    Thank you! It is a panoramic camera, and I (almost) never crop panoramic images - it is one of the main "feature"! You may be wonder, the scan are 21000x7000px.
    Have a look at original size scan

    But i did croped Taj Mahal image. It was shot in "6x12 mode" Look at original shot
    I don't know which is better, I consider them all good.

    Superka,

    You have some great images on your flickr page but I did notice a tendency to crop certain structures (e.g. Mills). You may have been tyring to emphasis DOF but you end up losing the character of the foreground mill and also cutoff the compositional effects of diagnonals created by the perspective of your field of view. I know with the large palaces of India you either have to be on higher ground to capture all of the structure or only photograph sections of the many great architectural treasures of the country. With other photos, where it appears that the photographer has the opportunity to frame the subject correctly, viewers may not be so tolerant.

    I croped mills you were talking about - because I placed a link to spherical panorama. That image is just a printscreen from sph.panorama. It is not an image to make any conclusions from.
    I do not crop what i shoot - just try to contain as much as needed or as possible. I also think that there is no need to capture everything to show to a viewer the place. But sometimes I really wish I have more wide lens. I couldn't capture Le Corbusier building in Chandigarh as I wanted to.
