View of Macqueripe Bay - Chaguaramas

During the American occupation from 1941 - 1972 the Macqueripe beach club was maintained as an entertainment center from the families of the American officers. Macqueripe beach was once an American Submarine station during World War II.

Was there about after 10 a Saturday morning. Not more than 7 persons. I was able to walk without tripping on people. When we were leaving a small band maxi was coming in.  :-\

4 steps in into the water and next thing I know, an incline and water by my waist, The undercurrent on the left side.....lawd!! Bottom line is you can't be a stranger to that beach, ya sure to drown.
But I love it too bad!

Great shot... when I visited two yrs ago they were still fixing up Macqueripe, so suffice to say it looked nothing like this.

Ah Macqueripe. Once we were jumping off the platforms on the right, and a giant manta ray surfaced next to a fella.
Man nearly dead when he see it so close.  I sure he pee in the water.

About 30-40 meters out there's a pole a few feet below the surface of the water.  We used to find it by lining up with a coconut tree on the shore.  You can swim out and stand on the pole. 
I actually hope they remove that pole.  It could be dangerous if yuh doh know it there.

I'm just experimenting with photo stitching. This is 3 images of a ruins in San Gimignano, Italy, with different focal lenghts, exposure and so on stitched together.



I took 360 degree images (basically took a series of shots rotating 360 degrees with a point and shoot digital) standing at the bottom of the Yosimite valley in 2004, which I will attempt to stitch. Not sure how it will pan out. 

Any suggestions?

My sister still holding on to one ah them.

Yeah, didn't have to do much, software took care of it. just had to select picks and them crop the output.

Ah guess my question should've been, how to process/present a 360 degree image.

Looks good, but the only suggestion I have is next time take 6 photos. Up down, up down, up down.

Reason why - more flow, more image and it will help with cropping. If you didn't say the ruin was San Gimignano, Italy, I won't have known. If you had 6 images and cropped the sides at least the viewer would have been able to see it is the ruin of Sa Gimignano. But other than that, I think it's good!!

I see what you're saying, it makes sense. The cropping I did restricted me to the sides only, not enough image above and below.

Its actually the Roman ruins in Volterra, which is next to San Gimignano.
Thanks  :beermug:

Tdot, hope this helps a little. Try and get as much details in your panoramic photo. Take as much as you want; your software will do the rest.

I was there but did not see yuh (unless you was the white girl asking for holy water at the end of the service ..)

Give me a heads-up and I will let our custodian know when to expect you.

Yuh know we have four original Tiffany Stain Glass windows  - I was checking them yesterday and it looks like they are in need of repair - some sections are beginning to bow out :o

Anyway tell them I coming between those hours and to leave the light on, cause I want natural light  :P. I have to go back to the Cathedral and get better snaps.
