Location: Reersø Westcliff (15 m)      by: Jan Lindgaard Rasmussen
Area: Denmark      Date: 2012-08-12, 20:20
The Reersø-peninsula is one of many view-points down the westcoast of Sjælland. Fyn and the Storebælt-bridge are once again the main reference-points, but this particular location also holds good views to the islands of Musholm and Romsø.

The southwest point continues as a reef beneath the sea, with a small patch just above sea-level called Rønnen, meaning a small sea-landscape with many stones. The reef is an end moraine from the ice-age, northward in orientation because the glacier came from the south. All of Reersø and the Romsø island is part of the moraine. A handfull of these end moraines can be seen as peninsulas and islands down the coastlines of western Sjælland and eastern Fyn. Today it shows as a narrow and shallow channel for the big ships to navigate through, and therefor all ships must take maritime pilots aboard.

Pano made from 41 pics (RAW), ISO-100, 300 mm handheld, 1/800 sec, f/8. Developed in DPP (Cloudy, Neutral), stitched in Hugin, re-scaled and sharpened in IrfanView.

PS: Sorry for my extended summerpause, I still enjoyed all your panos in silence. I have done many other things over the summer, but most importantly I have been wrestling with the new version of Hugin, and I was on my knees on severel occasions...Often it crashed when loading the preview. I may have sorted that out by launching the preview immediately after loading the pictures. But still, when making a pano of more than 180 degrees, the two ends simply disappears when I want to straighten the pano, and leaving a pano of exactly 180 degrees. Does anyone know what happens and what to do?


Great! The complete bridge on one picture...

... and a special atmosphere, very good.

A great view Jan, nice to have you here again!
mg Danko.

Perfect viewpoint, awesome picture. Gelogy wise I am interested ... did the glacier indeed come from central Europe (from the south ?) and not from the Laurentian shield?
kind regards Christoph

I answered the glaciology question myself, by doing some reading. One quote (Michael Houmark-Nielsen, says "During the Weichselian, glaciers originating in the Scandinavian highlands and the Baltic depression invaded Denmark from northerly, northeasterly and southeasterly directions." Also the Wiki entry gives a very good summary of the Weichselian glaciation.

Welcome back! Good to see that you are still pursuing your very own style. Amazing sharpness and detail in the distance. Cheers, Martin

Thank you for the "welcome back", all.

@ Christoph & others interested: Thank you for the links. You can imagine the Fjells of Norway and Sweden as a barrier and Sweden and the Baltic Sea being covered with ice. At a certain time, there was ice in the southern Baltic area as an appendix to the main shield, and glaciers spilled over to the north, creating the three straits of Lillebælt (Little Belt, Great Belt and Øresund).

Hi Jan, I also have a longer rest behind me. I started in 2008 with Hugin 0.7 and used until 2011. After an annoying problem with stitching I have switched to PTGui - I do not regret this step.
LG Werner

Welcome back also on my part. Beautiful and very long.

Velkommen tilbake Jan :)

Very impressive! Cheers Auggie

The unsharp foreground I don't like. But anything else is great! And that you are back is a very good message!
LG Jörg

Glad to see you returning with such an extraordinary pano. Most impressing the cliff beyond the distant bridge. HJ
2012/12/08 23:41 , Hans-Jürgen Bayer
A "Thank you" also to the last commentators.

@Werner: I have also considered switching to PTgui, but I would of course wish there was an easy solution to the problems with Hugin. On my PC Norton claims Hugin is "secure" but "unstable". LG Jan.

I also have problems with opening the viewer. Maybe I will see for a different option, too ....

Welcome back! I´m glad to see something new from you and many thanks for your less silent attention in the last weeks of your really long "Sommerpause". Your current presentaion shows a photogenic and difficult motiv excellent sharp in an impressive light. BUT: The scrub out of focus in the foreground is IMHO a crass disfigurement right at the beginning.
2012/12/09 21:14 , Jörg Braukmann
Yes, I know, but I don't really know what to do about it...If I crop it away the Musholm island is cut in half, and I don't want unless a brillant idea comes up, this will have to do. But thanks anyway! LG Jan.
2012/12/09 21:58 , Jan Lindgaard Rasmussen
It´s definitely to late to change the shooting-lacation a bit. And it´s certainly no good idea to crop simply the problematic area. It´s a finicky job, but maybe it´s possible to retouch it. The background doesn´t seem to be verry complex.
2012/12/09 23:07 , Jörg Braukmann
The problem of the shootingpoint was, that if I took one more step to the right, I would fall from the you mean to clone some background and cover it? I will think about it, but no promises, since:
- I prefer "unplugged" views (OK, I can cheat a little if I have to...), and
- I am not that good at making such things.
But I will check it out seriously. LG Jan.
2012/12/09 23:34 , Jan Lindgaard Rasmussen
As already said before, great comeback pano and welcome back Jan!
2012/12/10 08:48 , Jens Vischer
Das ist natürlich ein Schlag, den man bei der Eröffnung des Panoramas bekommt. Das läßt sich doch ohne großen Aufwand wegretuschieren, Jan.
Denn das beeinträchtigt doch den Höhepunkt Deines Panoramas, die beiden Brücken, die Du hier fast besser als in Deinem Panorama von Kløveshøj zur Ansicht bringst. Das, was dann kommt, ist etwas für Liebhaber Deiner feinen Zeichnungstechnik, aber auch Deiner Lichttechnik.

Thank you also the last commentators. I have briefly tried to do something about the blurred intro, but all my time has been spend on more Hugin-frustrations. Since this pano Hugin cannot create the pano, though still loading, aligning and launching preview. It is probably some bug, that doesn't work with my pc, but now I am tired and irritated about it, and I have therefore purchased PTgui instead.
2012/12/26 22:57 , Jan Lindgaard Rasmussen
Given the time we spend preparing panos and commenting on this platform, any expenditure for software is probably justifiable. However, I have one question: PTGui seems to be everybody's favourite here. I myself am extremely pleased with Kolor's Autopano Pro (not to be confused with autostitch). It has all capabilities to influence control points, horizon setting, rotation etc., accessible through a nice user interface, quick preview in any zoom level (with 3.0 even for the blending result) and is extremely performant, stitching even large panos in a couple of minutes. Interestingly, nobody else here uses it - what are the benefits of PTGui over Autopano? Cheers, Martin
2012/12/27 08:47 , Martin Kraus
Hello Martin. I have noticed that also Dirk Becker uses APP. I took a look at the APP-site and got the trialversion, but I have a huge load of unfinished panos and I therefor chosed PTgui because it is almost similar to Hugin, since I don't want to spend time on getting to know another stitcher. But I have so far noticed that both you and Dirk produce high-end panos so I will try it out (slowly) and see. LG Jan.
