Sydney Observatory Bandstand - textured
Australia

An alternative rendering of the panorama showing a high degree of texture detail in the scene. This was achieved by photographing in exposure brackets to capture both the dark shadows under the trees and the bright reflected light from the harbour. Then it was tonemapped using a special technique to bring out the detail.

View shows the old Sydney Observatory with its tarnished copper roof domes, a war memorial, and the inner harbour sits in front of northern Sydney CBD with the harbour bridge connecting them.

Symmetrical panorama taken form the bandstand in the Sydney Observatory Park on Millers Point in central Sydney, Australia.

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.
