Herrenhausen Illumination (August 2019)

Photos shot with Sony A6300 and Sony 18-135 zoom-lens in Hannover Herrenhäuser Gärten end of August from 21:00 to 22:00 (9-10 pm). It was already very dark and beyond the blue hour when the illumination started. Therefore the images are with stars in the sky and the...

Tulips in Berggarten Hannover (April 2019)

Photos shot with Sony A6300 and Sony 18-135 zoom-lens in Berggarten Hannover in April. This lens is not a macro lens and has no fast aperture. Thus the bokeh is a bit too harsh and the background not blurred out. Still with maximum focal length and closest distance...

Wisentgehege Springe (April 2019)

Wisentgehege Springe in April 2019. Shot with Sony A6300 and 18-135 mm. First time I used the lens. All shots were done with maximum focal length. The shutter speed for the birds in the falconary show was 1/2000s with ISO 1000-2000. Theses photos are thus with high...

Moon image with exposure stacked photos

Chilis 2013

These are the Chilis of 2013. In contrast to previous years I grew only three types and placed them on the balcony. The plants grew 60-70 cm tall and needed to be tied to sticks after the chilis grew to prevent them from falling down. The red ones are hardly hot, but...

Maschseefest 2013

HDR image of the town hall in Hannover

My first attempt with HDR image with the New Town Hall in Hanover at about 23:00. The exposure times, however, were so long (5, 10, 20 seconds) that the leaves are all washed out in the wind and cause ghosting in the resulting image. The second image shows a normal...

radiobuttons in a buttongroup

In matlab one has to place radiobuttons in a uibuttongroup to make them exclusively selectable. In the startup of the gui one can select the default selection and define a callback function set(handles.uibuttongroupView, 'SelectedObject', handles.radiobuttonPlotROI);...

enable zoom in gui

Matlab provides the function of making axes zoomable in a gui (zoom reference). In a matlab gui this is enable by using this code: hZoom = zoom; setAllowAxesZoom(hZoom,handles.axes,true); set(hZoom,'Motion','both','Enable','on');

change extension of filename

Very often I tend to save the results of a file under the same name, but with a modified extension. This code shows how to achieve this % change extension [~, ~, ext] = fileparts(FileName); FileName = strrep(FileName, ext, '-xyz.png'); If the file should be saved...

The callback of an ui element is called whenever the element has been modified. However this does not necessarily mean that the value of the element has changed. Here is an example where an action is only performed if the value has changed. The trick is to use a value...

plotyy with unequal tick locations for both datasets

plotyy with unequal tick locations for both datasets

In matlab the normal way to create plots with two y-axis is to use the command plotyy. This works quite simple, and creates equal tick locations for both data sets: xaxis = 0:0.1:25; y1 = linspace(12.1712,12.7679, length(xaxis)); y2 = linspace(0.3597,-28.7745,...

pcolor plots with publication ready formating

pcolor plots with publication ready formating

Matlab has many possibilities to create plots even fancy ones. However its defaults are very seldom suitable to use the plots directly for a publication. The following minimal code demonstrates how to generate a pcolor plot for 2D data with x- and y-axis. The data was...

fast calculation of functions with two variables

If you come from the programming world of C/C++ or java or any other traditional programming languages you might fall into the trap of using for loops for the calculation of functions. This works as expected but it is much slower than what matlab can do. The following...
