K3 - Gimpo Citizen - 김포공설운동장

Postby paquebot » Thu Apr 07, 2016 11:14 pm

Two photos from inside Gimpo's ground:

Didn't spend any time poking around the area, but the stadium is across the street from the Gimpo Art Hall.

Also, it's easier to take the steps to the right after entering the stadium. If you go to the left inside you're stuck climbing up a very shaky set of metal temporary stairs that have just enough room for two people to pass by.
In Yangju, if your cabbage doesn't understand you and you have valid reason for not eating it, then it is ok to go to other vegetables for your kimchi - though strictly nothing from south of Namyangju. -- Martyrs Forever

Nice pics.. this is one I'd always meant to do from the days when Hallelujah were playing there but never got round to it.

How wide is your lens? Mine opens to 18mm (on a cropped sensor, mind) but I don't get anywhere close to capturing the full stadium in one shot.

I might have to see if I can get a second hand super wide somewhere. I"m not paying full price for something with such a limited use (for me)

I just have a run of the mill 18-200mm Sigma. I used AutoStitch to make those images; the top image was made from 10 photos and the second from 34 photos.

You can see a chunk of black in the bottom right corner of the second image from where I missed taking a photo. I could have cropped the picture to remove it but thought it was worth keeping for the view of the Gimpo Art Hall.

Ah, the same lens I have. I don't know how I didn't see it. I can see the stitching points all over now that I know it is being done.

I haven't used stitching in so long, and I was never a big fan to begin with, but I guess it's time to rethink this.

You're right, the stitching points along the guardrail of the second picture are fairly obvious if you're looking for them. I don't have a tripod and must have changed my position a bit too much between photos. (Or included too many in the stitching program.)

Combined with my photography - not the best - I don't think I would trust a stitching program to give fantastic results. Something like the stadium pictures above, where I'm just trying to show the general look and feel of a setting, may be a better use of them, though.

I wouldn't complain about them. With a tripod you would have been perfect, I'm sure. But like you say, you were going for a general look and feel, not exhibition material, so who cares? When someone is paying then it is time to put some serious effort in.

Good points. A few quick snaps of a stadium isn't anywhere near as serious as trying to take photos for the bus porn thread, after all.
