Sometimes I think that civic buildings get all the best architecture!

I pass these buildings almost everyday, so I figured it was about time I took their pictures:

Hi John,

I was there on Wednesday, but it was far busier than that. What time of day did you take them?

Good shots btw.

Chuckles.... Yes there's normally a traffic-jam outside that building

These were taken one Sunday morning, not early enough to get rid of all the traffic and pedestrians, but then it's not light early morning at present anyway.

The pictures are a little misleading, the scene was never completely free of traffic, but were taken as panoramas so I just had to time each shot so it was traffic free, and then once they were stitched together it makes it look like the whole place was quiet !

John.

What software do you use to stitch with? I have been playing around with autostich, but it is quite limited.

Autostitch :-)

If you uncheck the auto straighten check box, then then you can get a bit more control: ignore alpha, Phi makes the image bend up or down at the corners, and Psi rotates the whole image. I also up the RANSAC iterations by a factor of 10 to 5000 which seems to produce better quality matches, without increasing the time taken enough to be noticeable.

BTW if you think autostitch is limited, you should try Photoshop's Photomerge

Now that's what I call architecture - any idea of the dating? Looks Elizabethan / Tudor in style
