Urbex Palace – NON PLUS ULTRA

Tags : 

Having seen pictures of this hall I kinda knew what to expect. However on arrival I was blown away, intricate carvings all painted white, skylights letting in wonderful light. This surly was a place to behold.

I had high hopes of shooting a mega-panorama here, however it appears that it’s not to be. The regular settings that I use (60 degree increments) simply dont give enough overlap. Usually this works a treat, however this time the symmetry and regularity of the location just didn’t work.

This image is a ‘vertorama’, three images stuck together vertically. There was a fair deal of messing with it once stitched. The Free Transform tool was used to pull it this way and that to produce a fully square image with as little bend as possible. I’m happy with the results, I may re-process this at a later date to de-grunge the processing.

Looks like you’ve done a very good job here despite the processing problems that came up. What an incredible location this is – I still struggle to believe that it is abandoned, but am equally glad to see that it has not been trashed or vandalised – hopefully it will remain this way.

Great job on this! Vertoramas are challenging but very rewarding when done correctly. Can’t wait to see more from your trip!

Hello Mark,
This is an absolutely incredible photograph. I was simply blown away by how much it appears to be a painting, but upon closer inspection, is indeed a photo. It’s really that beautiful!
Great job

Beautiful, Mark. Your post processing on this is incredible. Great job. I don’t see where any de-grunge is necessary. “)
