I’ve been just introduced to awsome software – Autopano Giga, software for automatic pics stitching into panoramas. Last night before going to bed I fed my Giga to a folder with all our Rainbow pictures – more than 22000 photos. And fell sound asleep. I shall be frank, Giga “died” not being able to digest even half of this heap. But what it did to the first part – by itself, no hands applied to it – is, I think, absolutely fantastic!
Here’s some dozen of its masterpieces (uploaded “as is”, no cropping, no processing):
Salween in Yunnan, near the border of Tibet
Great Bend of Brahmaputra – finally full size!
A monastery yard in Lhasa
A miracle! Buddhist symbol naturally self-manifested over Potala. Chinese tourists maniacally taking pictures of it..
Colourful debates of monks in Sera. If you look closer, you’ll see, it’s one and the same monk in three phases of “questioning” moves.
A panorama inside the monastery, dedicated to Chamsing Lhamo, a new Tibetan deity helping in business
Xining, capital of Quinghai, at night from our hostel room
A building in Yushu, destroyed by a disastrous earthquake in 2010
Changtang plateau. Blue tent of tibetan nomads – a symbol of change. And a pile of carved mani-stones – symbol of eternity.
A lonesome yak on Northern Plateau, Changtang
An old Uygur shepherd herding his sheep inside for the night
Take a closer look – there’s only three camels here, driven by one caravanner. Smart Giga carefully added two more camels and one more caravanner, and made only one mistake – put a lonely camel leg at the end of the caravan,.
