A few new photos + some responses

@UD2: "the right side tower on the last pick seem a little bent?" That's my fault, I did all shots hand held from a window (without tripod). Therefore the stitching software overcompensates the "errors" in the perspective.

@Chad: If you're referring to the Service Building, that's where all the air conditioning systems etc will be housed for both TVCC and CCTV. That building is massive!

Interesting to see one of my own photos being posted, once again, with some random Website's branding (from the usual suspect) watermark in it...

In any case, before it's done with more of the new photos (ghehe), here's a high res look at TVCC's progression. You can notice that the green material is being removed from the "skin" on top of the building!



And here's a closer up look at the massive Service Building, east of CCTV & TVCC:



As per usual, many more photos here: CCTV Building Development Construction.

Enjoy! Also, if you'd like specific shots of specific details, please (clearly) let me know what you'd like to see!

still have a question, why do they need a massive service building in there? it seems other buildings like WTCIII or SWFC don't really need a service building. (sorry if this is a stupid queston.)

btw, I see two ghosts in the first picture

I don't think it means to 'service" the building, but rather services provided BY CCTV.

Thanks tombeijing. Great shots!

sorry to burst everyones bubble but those 2 or 3 guys are definitely not phantoms/spectres but real people. It's just the way the pic has come out that makes them appear like phantoms. Should get back to CCTV, ah, that's why they called this building that name.

The ghosts, explained.

Hahaha...

I've been slightly unfocused (no pun intended once again) on this forum due to just having bought a new camera, but I have to admit that it's pretty funny to see the reactions about the phantom buddies!

The photo is a very high resolution stitch of more than 20 frames (manually exposed RAW files). The program I use for this takes all the images, does a SIFT analysis (checks which areas of the images have similarities), and then automatically blends the photos. In some cases, this leads to amusing results such as semi transparent people or objects. It also sometimes causes things to "re-appear" several times, such as the (same) truck, three times in this image:

image hosted on flickr


Hope this clears things up. Apologies for the slight off-topicness, but I didn't want you guys to get nightmares!

In the meantime, to celebrate my new camera (Canon 40D for those interested), here's a relatively high resolution night shot:




And a 20-image stitch (original file is 7073 x 6168!)




Enjoy.
