what is place you position the pics in GE?

Michael Braxenthaler on May 7, 2007

Hi jikai,

I'm not sure I understand the question. Do you mean how you technically position the picture?

In Panoramio you position it during the upload process. For GE the pictures in Panoramio go through a selection process by Panoramio staff (for consideration as favorites) and a second selection process by Google. There is more information in the Panoramio help section.

Does this answer your question?

I'm sorry for my poor english! :) this picture is not a real world, so i want to know the palce name that you position it in GE(28º 22' 25.35" N 81º 32' 58.67" W). I hope you can understand my poor English this time :)

Michael Braxenthaler on May 8, 2007

Sorry for the misunderstanding, jikai. This picture IS a real world picture and was taken exactly where it is mapped: at Disney Epcot in Orlando, Florida. The unreal look is a result of over-processing the image in an HDR/tonemapping process (just like some of my other HDR images).

Love the HDR work. Fantastic.

Great picture. Spetially the irony on the mix of Disney concept processed this way seems a japanese cartoon or a children book illustration.

Very good.

Michael Braxenthaler on June 15, 2007

Thanks, Claire. I thoroughly enjoy using photography to do more than capturing the real world...

hi, michael, hat's the correct title you choose ... I like the dephth and the color composition as well as the "typical" hdr contrast compression, which goes amazingly well with the various layers of the image. great work, best regards


Michael Braxenthaler on November 1, 2007

Thanks for this feedback by an expert eye, michael! I tried this 'HDR overprocessing' on a number of other occasions but it never worked as well as in this case. Cheers, --michael

Absolut SPITZE. Die HDR-Technik ist etwas faszinierendes. Habe mir alle deine Bilder mit großem Interesse angeschaut. Ich fotografiere erst seit 1-2 Jahren, aber nur mit einer Taschenkamera.

Michael Braxenthaler on March 29, 2008

Danke, Malo. Ja, HDR ist faszinierend, aber auch relativ zeitaufwendig. Ich hab mir deine web site angesehen: Mit Malerei hast du ja wirklich eine schöne Alternative (gratuliere zu den Erfolgen). Wenn du ein bisschen anfangen willst, mit HDR rumzuspielen, können wir uns gern mehr drüber unterhalten.

Gruss, --michael

L. Matuschek on March 29, 2008

Danke Michael für dein freundliches Angebot (HDR). Ich fürchte, dass mir dafür doch die Zeit fehlt. Man sollte sich nicht verzetteln. Gruß aus Bremen
