It was a exciting experience exploring around Kenting from the sandy white beaches to the astonishing view at the top of the cape located at the most southern tip of Taiwan. Enjoy the view!

And technically…. In post processing, no other kind of post-processing technique applied other than using the landscape picture style in Canon DPP. They are later stitched together using PTGui.
Both panoramas are taken hand-held using Canon 5D MKII, and a Canon EF 17-40 f/4L and in stitching later on, each of the panorama produces a total resolution of about 60 megapixels. They are then downsized to 4000px at the widest side to accommodate for web viewing.
It’s a breathtaking scenery that every visitor to Cameroon Highlands would never miss it. I have complied the panorama I took back in year 2004 and the one I took recently and wish to share with you all. Here you go…

Nothing much have changed after 4 years except that there’s a new recreational/resting hut in the middle of the field, which is actually good for us to chill while enjoying the great scenery.
There’s actually a few more tea plantation fields around Cameron Highlands. I’ll try to get to them on my next trip up there! Happy Holidays on this long weekend peeps!
Technical Note: Canon EFS 10-22 fitted on Canon 400D fitted on a cheap tripod. It’s very hard to get the horizon level right as I tilted the camera gear to capture in portrait mode. In trying to remove human traffic as much as possible from the shots, here we are.
My Canon 400D tend to go underexpose nowadays and struggle in low light. Taking shots at ISO 800 means stepping into noisy grainy territory. I had to bump up 2/3 steps in exposure bias in processing the shots.
They are then stitched with PTGui and converted to flash format using Pano2VR player.
