The other day I was dithering about software for making panoramas: On choosing panorama software.
Wright’s hill offers panoramic views of Wellington, and the off-leash area is large, so of course I wanted to create images to reflect that.
The need settled it: I chose Calico for its ease of use and good results, as you can see with the photos below. WordPress only gives square thumbnails — click each image for a full-size panoramic version.
There’s a lookout point at the top of Wright’s Hill, with stunning views across the harbour and towards Hutt Valley. We visited on a dull and cloudy day. The off-leash area used to be a military parade ground. It’s big, flat and grassy.
At US$39 I think the software is a tad too expensive. That converts to NZ$62 at current exchange rates and I hesitated several times before handing over the cash. I suspect if it had converted to NZ$49 my decision would have been easier.
One day I’m hoping I may be able to buy a good wide-angle lens for my camera. That may make these wide images even easier.
