Picture of the Week: Drone over Hong Kong

[note: clicking links below may take you to advertising partners, who may pay me a commission should you make a subsequent purchase.]

I love DJI drones.  The newer ones, basically anything including and after the Phantom 4 Pro, have a beautiful panorama mode where the drone will take a bunch of images and stitch them together for you into a panorama (vertical, horizontical, or a 360 image).  I was recently in Hong Kong, like I shared last week, and there was a Mavic 2 Pro involved.

I’m not going to get into the details of this shot but suffice it to say it’s an incredible shot.  It focuses on The Center, Hong Kong’s fifth tallest building, with the surrounding megalopolis as context.  Please enjoy for this week’s picture of the week!

For the photographers: This was taken with a Mavic 2 Pro in the 3-shot vertical panorama mode.  The raw images were then stitched in Photoshop (the Mavic’s default stitching wasn’t what I was going for).  After that the oranges were desaturated just a bit in Photoshop, Nik Color Efex Pro 4 Pro Contrast was added, then some sharpening, and here we go!  As always, happy to answer almost any questions in the comments below!

  2. ok wow! I reckon that if you’re going to travel somewhere exotic, or maybe even not-so exotic, a drone might be an awesome way to take an amazing perspective of the place!
