Location: Tsaatan West Taiga (2270 m)      by: Pedrotti Alberto
Area: Mongolia      Date: 08-08-2011
For my work number 100 on this site I temporarily interrupt the Moroccan series, posting a tribute to the Tsaatan land, of which I have published so little up to now.
To witness how often things go strange in this world, you will find a certain deal of information about my Tsaatan land material in a comment to N.12108, which is taken in Sardinia - one can hardly imagine a setting less related to the present one! I recall that here we are in the middle of the Sayan mountains, which are the eastern spine of the Altai. For a thorough description of these mountain ranges, see my Nairamdal panorama.
The 360° companion "Taiga II" will eventually follow some day.
I have to remark: this time I am not satisfied with the finishing work done by Irfanview. It looks rather strange on my screen. Should my complaint not remain alone, I could try some alternative solution.
32 vertical shots, 70mm (x1.5), f/18, 1/125 sec.


... wonderful landscape ... but i miss your bike on the picture ;-) !!! Cheers Hans-Jörg

Did you swap the bike for a horse? Personally I find the horse a bit of a distraction in this panorama, but otherwise it's great, as usual!

The only little thing to complain about is the well-known Irfanview bug on the right, everything else is just great.

Yes, you go only by horse there...
The bicycle could not be object of swap, since for one time it had been left in Italy.
About the isolated horse I do not know: it was there, and easy to put inside. I chose to do so, such that the people first think that the image will be populated, and then they find it empty.

Eine faszinierende, weitläufige Landschaft. LG Fried

Thank you Jens for spotting the bug.
Now I loaded the non-Irfan solution.

Congratulation to the 100th! I always enjoy your great pictures - so you can't stop :-)

Thank you Werner. "Great", however, seems too big a proposition, "interesting" would be more than enough for me!
No idea to stop at 100, as is proven by the fact that N.101 is already... ready. It needs only to queue one week, although it could happen to fill a "blank on the map" in Google Earth, 3 km ENE of N.099, even earlier.

Anche questo è bellissimo.

Wunderbare Landschaft!

LG & behüt Dich Gott,

Danke Christian. Mir auch gefällt jede Landschaft, wo man "nichts zu sehen" hat.

Again a remarkable view - worthy of your #100 - congratulations. On your remark on IrfanView - I have also found with some of my Scotland pictures that smooth ridges in front of a lighter sky are oversharpened and even have step-artefacts. As IV has no possibility to influence settings, the only alternative is to go back to sharpening with other tools - however PSE has shown to deliver much worse results overall. Any suggestions anyone? Cheers, Martin

Martin, das geht doch mit einem mit IrfanView geschärften Panorama genau wie mit einem anders geschärften, indem man eine Kopie des geschärften Panoramas über das ungeschärfte legt und dann mittels Maske nur die entsprechenden Teile sichtbar werden läßt. Zusätzlich kann man die Deckkraft der Ebenen variieren.
