Manama Panorama

Manama Panorama, originally uploaded by malyousif.

I took this panorama from the NBB Tower. It’s 41 images stitched together to produce this vista. If you look closely on the left, you will see the base of what promises to be iconic set of buildings in Manama in Bahrain Bay.

    Amazing picture. Perhaps you could post a higher res version ?? How do you stitch them?

    On a side note. I’m not a person that is particularly into architecture but I will say the the WTC in Manama is the most incredible building(s) i’ve ever seen.

    Loki, with pleasure. What size would you like?

    ammar nope. NBB doesn’t go that high.

  4. mahmood says:

    Oh, sorry Loki, I use AutoPano Pro on the Mac to do the stitching. And I agree, the WTC buildings are indeed beautiful and iconic.

    mahmood, i didnt mean which floor… by 41, i was referring to this:

    It’s 41 images stitched together to produce this vista

    so, again i ask.


  11. mahmood says:

    Yep. Sorry. And on a old mobile phone too. The K800i.

  12. Loki says:

    Sorry, just to make sure I understand this correctly. the individual shots were taken with a K800i!!?????

  13. mahmood says:

    Yep! fascinating isn’t it?

  14. Loki says:

    Bloody hell! I have a k800i that I use (as my small phone). but I am seriously amazed that you managed that with that phone. damn! Kudos (again).

  15. mahmood says:

    Let me add one thing here, probably the only reason I didn’t succumb to getting an iPhone is that I am really so happy with the k800i’s camera. If you look at the EXIF data of a lot of my blogging pictures you will have noticed they were taken with the k800i. When people realise that the pictures were actually taken with it, well, I get a reaction like yours!

    But that’s not the only thing I use it for. I continuously go menu – 3 – 9 and record notes on the go and have even taped whole conferences with it amongst many other uses!

    It’s almost falling to bits now after having it for 2 years or more, but I don’t have the heart to throw it out and get another one yet.
