Sydney Royal Botanic Gardens Harbor Foreshore

Shot this back in July 2008 when I was in Sydney. Haven’t been back since and after looking at google earth it looks there has been some development there.

Around this time I was under the mistaken idea that it was best to shoot panoramas at F22 going for the the biggest depth of field possible. Unfortunately what I didn’t know then is that F22 is optically not the best aperture for shooting panoramas in every situation – doh!

Fisheye lenes have a decent depth of field at bigger apertures like F11 and the result is a cleaner image – F22 on a Nikon 10.5 DX lens can be quite ’soft’ ….well that’s what I have found anyway.

Also had some problems with this panorama because the light was much stronger in one image as the sun momentarily came out from behind the clouds which made the blend a bit nasty – you can see this on the footpath towards the couple in red.

More About Australia

There are no kangaroos in Austria. We're talking about Australia, the world's smallest continent. That being cleared up, let's dive right in! Australia is a sovereign state under the Commonwealth of Nations, which is in turn overseen by Queen Elizabeth the Second, by the Grace of God, Queen of Australia and Her other Realms and Territories, Head of the Commonwealth. The continent was first sighted and charted by the Dutch in 1606. Captain James Cook of Britain came along in the next century to claim it for Britain and name it "New South Wales." Shortly thereafter it was declared to be a penal colony full of nothing but criminals and convicts, giving it the crap reputation you may have heard at your last cocktail party. This rumor ignores 40,000 years of pre-European human history, especially the Aboriginal concept of Dreamtime, an interesting explanation of physical and spiritual reality. The two biggest cities in Australia are Sydney and Melbourne. Sydney is more for business, Melbourne for arts. But that's painting in very broad strokes. Take a whirl around the panoramas to see for yourself! Text by Steve Smith.
