OK, this is a big one, so be sure to view full-size! I sent the Mavic up yesterday, and did a couple 360 degree photo series. This is a panorama of 16 shots. Photoshop usually does an awesome job with the photomerge feature, but it had a challenge with this one. I ended up having to do 4 photo-merges of 4 photos each, then had to manually stitch those together for the whole panorama. There are a couple places where you can see things didn't quite match up if you look carefully. And if you look in the very left lower corner of the image you'll see some nut out flying a drone in the arctic weather! I flew the drone about a block away so it would get my house in the scene.

Photoshop must have been rebelling against all that white. It hates snow, too. Super shot though.


10:22PM | Mon, 14 January 2019

Yeah, I think that's Adobe's new 'Sensi' AI.... 😆

Excellent shot(s), Poor Photoshop this must have been the digital equivalent of putting together a puzzle of a snowman in a snowy field of trees covered with snow. 😁

awesome shot.

duuuuude, this is beautiful. I haven't found the words for your photography, but you get this clarity mixed with what I can only call a 'film' look---your photography has that unnamable softness that one only got from film. And the tone here---a nostalgic blue-gray---is beautiful; it's almost silvery. A wonderful panorama. The quality of the trees---esp on the right---is just magical. This is a panorama, sir.

Also, I saw the video almost as this went up: I loved it. And I never knew---I mean I never knew that the drone could be controlled so well. It's just stunning how it can hover, then rotate, then move here and there, then stop, then go right next to the trees without hitting them, then pan up, etc. You must really know how to control the thing, because I can just picture it banging into trees, hitting antennae, etc. It felt like you knew this thing in and out. And the views were really beautiful, some of them amazing: to be that close to a tree top, and be able to see it in a way one never could from the ground...I loved it. (And it all ended with you on your sidewalk, guiding it home.) I had no idea all you could do with it; I guess I'd never seen it in motion...

Many of the newer drones - especially ones from DJI - are designed for photography, and practically fly themselves. They lock on to GPS satellites and are very stable. The Mavic Pro I'm using has built-in obstacle avoidance. I could see on the controller how close I was to the trees, and the drone will stop once it gets to a predetermined distance from the tree. Even if I push the joystick forward, the drone won't get any closer. These things are truly amazing. You still have to use some common sense, but they're really pretty easy to fly. 😁

Cool picture my friend :)

Cool image!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

OH! GOSH!! You really did a magnificent job creating this panorama, Rod. Fun to be all over the town with this photo. I just love what you did here. It is superb !!



10:26AM | Tue, 15 January 2019

Excellent panoramic image !



10:58AM | Tue, 15 January 2019

Great looking pano ! Amazing what you can do with a drone :) , nicely done !

WOW! Fantastic job piecing those 16 panorama shots together. You say you are in the lower left corner. I don't see you, but I may need a microscope. There is so much to see in this photo. Also, the photo suggests you live in a small city. My previous impression was out in the country-side (I'm thinking of the felled trees after the storm wherein you could locate the downed electric wires with the drone). Thanks for the info about GPS and distance sensing drones. In Australia they have been having problems with people flying their drones around airports, causing cancelled flights and a load of trouble. Seems like your drone would not make that possible with its sophisticated sensory and control systems. Does this one also sound like a hornets nest on steroids? A good warning for your neighbors - "Watch out! Here he comes again!" Now, I'm wondering how much that super-drone has cost you! Keep up the good work! But don't forget - there are those of us who can't access all the modern flashy software you can throw at us. :-)

I am so impressed with this! good job, good job. snow can be very pretty, but dangerous, too (it's Mother Nature's winter trick.) stay safe and warm but feel free to take more photos. :)

I echo all the above in their assessment of this labor or love. And as long as Renderosity dosen't change its mind, my full size view is the default on Renderosity.



3:02PM | Wed, 16 January 2019

Way cool!



2:52AM | Thu, 17 January 2019

Awesome winter scene Rod......I likey!!

Try Microsoft ICE. Its a free software for stitching. Its free and fantastic. I use it for 360 panoramas or other panaramas.


12:38PM | Thu, 17 January 2019

I'll give it a try - Thanks, Knut!



4:13AM | Fri, 18 January 2019
