KLICK for the LARGE version >>
Thank’s to Adam for the new BIG panorama format on TE.
To-day I present a view of a part of our harbour in Oslo. The 5 basis pictures is shot at Sorenga, a part of the harbour not too much visited by visitors. The stitched version (Software: PanoramaMaker) is close to a 180 degrees coverage. Width: 3520px. Find below additional information of what you see:
SEE the land to the left of the big ferry. This is “Hovedoya” one of many small islands in the harbour basin. Very popular to visit in the summer. Some of these islands also have many small summerhouses.
SEE the big ferry. This is one of the two that daily makes their travel between Oslo and Copenhagen – the line has been operative some 60-70 years. Each day around the year a ferry arrives at 09.00 in Oslo, and leaves at 17.00. Very popular.
SEE the seagulls in front of the ferry: Think they are playing? By no means, as always they are fighting and screaming over some waste in the water.
SEE (just to the right of the seagulls) a little yellow house with some towers behind. That is Akershus Festning (fortification). Build in the “400 years long night” when the Danes ruled our little country, to protect us from the aggressive Swedes. Later it was the Swedes who took the power. First in 1905 we was free from our powerful neighbours. Pity for our neighbours that we find all the North Sea oil only 70 years later!
SEE the big yellow office building. This was originally a warehouse for grain.
SEE the blue ship in front of the yellow building. See the white section in the aft of the ship. This is a theatre ship. Complete with scene and place for many spectators this ship visited small towns and villages along our coast (some 2.500 km long) with actors from the National Theatre. To day the ship serve as a B&B in Oslo.
SEE the church tower a little to the right of the yellow house. This is Oslo Domkirke, the nearest we have a cathedral in Oslo.
SEE the high houses (they are to the right of the Central Station), fortunately this is with one exception the only “skyscrapers” we have in town. If you ask me we could do well without.
SEE the reds boat. They are part of some ground works done for the new opera house that will open here in 2008.
Your comments on this new large tech. are most welcome.

I like the picture. My screen, unfortunately, is not up to it (15''), I'll have a look at hopme tonight. What program did you use to stitch the 5 photographs?

Very interesting and extremely informative. I like the curve of the horizon: it creates a feeling of infinity. Great shot!

Another TE panorama that convinces me that I must try some myself -- though my village is perhaps not quite as interesting as Oslo! This looks very good on my new 19" monitor ... I cannot see any stitches. As always, your note is very informative.

This is large!
It will overflow by my monitor (17 inches). This has presence very much and I have an illusion that it is standing on the place completely.
Moreover, this screen strongly made sharp is characteristic, and very effective. I also want to challenge a panorama.

Very nice work, Jack. The panoramic effect is indeed coming out great, and your notes are a wonderful tool to understand what is shown on the picture. The stitching together of the images has really worked well also. Good effort!

It's really a nice view. This new feature (large picture) open new way to take picture.
The curve mkae by the water, that seems to go down at the middle, make a strange view. The contrast see - land, from the left to the right give a direction, same as the direction of the boat.

This is realy nice work. I did try it before to make a good panorama picture, but I got no succes at all. This is a good one, with good details and a intresting information. Good work.

Exellent try. I really like it. The red stripes are amazing, they are gives a new dimension to a pic. If someday I come to visit Oslo, I think that I have the base in order to begin to explore the town. Your description is better than in touristic guide. Very educational. Thankyou Jack.

First, your note is excelent. And your presentation of this panorama on this page the most creative I've seen on TE!
Your photo(s) is excelent and full of interesting elements and details and well balanced. About the panorama I only feel it misses a bit of sharpness. There's also a barrel distortion wich creats an interesting reading of the photo.
