What else do you do when you find a good view but take a full 360 degree view?

40 images, a whole lot of stitching, and 64 Mega-pixels later here we go.

Probably wasn't worth the effort as it was a rather hazy day, but I've stitched
it so I'm darn well going to show it :-)

All the best, John.

PS, sorry about the large file size, but any smaller and you can't see the view!

Thanks Bob, it is a pretty awesome view from up there. I don't think I'll be printing it out though: I don't have a wall long enough :G

John, that's probably the most landscape thing I've ever seen for a long time!
You say''Probably wasn't worth the effort...''Blah blah :blah: Just on the contrary, the impressive result justifies every minute you've spent for it...Even in much smaller pano works one may detect some distortions or tonal disharmony between the interlaced shots which is happily absent in yours.
Hope you keep on doing this kind of craziness:-)

WOW!! That is awesome John! I admire your tenacity in completing what must have seemed like a project. Be interesting to see if they could print this up at decent size. Probably throw the photo tech for a loop when he opens the file......cheers.......Don.

Thanks for the comments guys.

Thekman: the image would actually only be 8" high at 300dpi, however it would also be 100" long: that's 8 feet or 2.5 meters for those that prefer metric! And that's really the problem with images like these: they don't really "work" as prints, way to long and thin :O

John.
