Taken with Canon 400D with Sigma 18-200
This is probably the best place you can find in Penang with lots of green, far away from the hustle bustle of the big city like Georgetown. Gosh, Balik Pulau just got its first traffic light about 2 years ago. See how traffic-free it is :D.
Geographically, it is located on the south west part of the Penang island. Most of the people here often commute to work at other places like in the industrial area in Bayan Lepas, at the south east part of the island.
These shots are taken at the top of the hill along Jalan Tun Sardon. This is the major link connecting Balik Pulau to the rest of the island.

I took this photo below with Sigma 18-200 with 15 seconds shutter and at around f/11 with 4 degrees apart for each photo. Combined with PTGui later on. If you can check from the map below. The camera is looking down south.
HINT: Click on the photo to get super duper big resolution. :D:D
For this, I decided to use Canon 10-22mm set around 15mm with 30 seconds shutter at Tv Mode. With such long shutter, I expected the camera will use small aperture thus I did not need to be worry about the depth of field achieved. From the map, it is actually looking at North-West
The map below shows where I took the panorama from. It’s taken from a high-rise residential building along Jalan Genting Klang near Tasik Danau.
What you need to take these panorama?
A tripod is needed, vital! Camera with lens is needed too, obviously. Technically, overlap at least 60% is good to ensure you won’t lose linkage between each set later to produce a good panorama. And…. a stool!
I was shooting from the emergency staircase and the wall is quite high. I needed a stool to stand on it in order to get enough height to control the camera. Life is more fun and better with this little but important tool. Thanks Wendy for that!Read More
