Behind the scene : how this panorama was madeI took these shots at “Kasteel Arcen” which has many beautiful gardens on a large estate, not far from where I live . I arrived with sunshine and some clouds in the sky, a fine opportunity for shooting! I started near a large pond with fountains, flower-beds and the smell of all kind of flowers in the air.
When I was recording the sound of the fountains my attention was drawn by the croaking of frogs next to where I stood. They stopped however when I came near and unfortunately they didn’t begin again until I left.
After a while I came across a beautiful arbour in the middle of a rose garden and the joyful clattering of water made me think with steadfast certainty that this was the spot to shoot for the wwp.
Worthwile to mention: I lit up the fountain with the built-in flash of the camera , and used the dodge tool (photoshop) to lighten up the statue on top and the little dripping waterjets.
To get a good S(ignal)/N(oise) ratio-during sound recording- I held the mic as close to the waterjet as possible.
Just listen......... to the clarity of the sound, and if you listen carefully you can even hear a bird singing and people talking in the background !
