“Final” Panorama!

Posted: June 16, 2016 at 9:07 am

I’ve been very busy with other projects, including a big exhibition of Watching and Dreaming (2001: A Space Odyssey) at the Digital Art Biennial in Montreal this month. I had already shot two attempts at a “final” panorama, but have been having significant issues stitching the images together. I finally have a suitable result, but it uses the wider images, which limits the resolution to ~60,000 pixels, which is short of the 80,000px target:

Note the richer colours and higher contrast from shooting on a non-overcast day. I think this will make a very interesting image once the machine learning is applied. The fence and wrapping around the fountain is unfortunate though. I’m taking what I learned here and taking one last stab making a pano for the more tele images, but I don’t have high expectations. When I do this again, I’ll need to get a much higher resolution camera (higher than 18MP) so a smaller number of images are needed.
