    That is indeed very well done. You have certainly done your homework there :)

    Taking the time to get things right the first time certainly does pay off greatly.

     

    What I would have done here in addition is to take a few more photos from the various distances on the outside path from higher up to reinforce the overall alignment of the outer parts. From the pictures it looks like those photos were all taken in one plane (same height).

    Thanks for the feedback - reading the docs and the forum here really does its thing :-)

    What you say about different heights: totally agree - I would need a "higher" tripod I guess. this one is about 1.50 meters. That way I would be able to have a bigger variance in height. Also when you look top down onto a pillar you see that there are some things above the reach of the tripod that are rather guessed than recreated.

    gotta look for another tripod ...

    Definitela not bad! Much more systematic than I usually work...  :-)

    I agree with ShadowTail - with some higher shots you wouls also have covered the tops of the capitals a  bit better. On the outside, you would probably have been fine without a tripod.

    Also, the short sides of the interior floor need a bit more attention for the texture.

    But that's just criticism at a high level...

    To be honest I expected nothing to come out of this test but Information of what i did wrong. So I’m quite happy.
    Appreciate the critic - helps me identifying where to be more careful next time
    I’ll try without a tripod next time

    Well that's the best way, expect nothing, get everything!  :-)

    It's not wrong th use a tripod, just much faster if you don't. I think over 1/60 it is almost impossible to get motion blurr if you don't run around with the camera.  :-) And if you practice a bit, then you can get down to 1/20 or 1/15 (or even lower, some say).

    Need more practice in shooting without. I’ll definitely try that. Makes things quicker and gives your flexibility in tricky edges. Tripod somehow helps me to stick to my plan. Shoot, move tripod, shoot, move tripod
    But maybe that’s just me.

    Whatever works best!

    With tripod is certainly saver than without. And if it takes you less time with tripod than without, why change your workflow?  :-)
