Default Spherical Snow Panoramas with Nikon D70s and Nikkor Fisheye

I took these pictures back in 2010 - but I haven't found the time to stitch them together until now.
Nevertheless, it's kinda weird to post pictures with snow in June

But here goes:
Camera and Lens: Nikon D70s + Nikkor 10.5mm Fisheye
Software used: Hugin + GIMP











What do you think?

Very cool perpectives! I have the Nikkor 10.5 FE but have never attempted a 360 perspective!

Thanks!
Maybe you should give it a try sometimes too... it's not so hard
Just take 6 shots horizontal 60 degrees apart with the camera in portrait orientation, and 1 or 2 shots each up and down 90 degrees apart.
Try to rotate the camera around the lens to keep parallax errors to a minimum.

Here are some additional panoramas from the same bunch of photos, I stitched today:

I like the last one you posted. Will need to try it for sure. Is Hugin easy to use?

Awesome - especially the last one in the first set - they look like like individual free-floating planets.

Yes, there's an easy to use "Assistant" tab in Hugin, where you just need to load the pictures, press the Align-button to automatically create control points and align the pictures. Once this is finished the preview window will pop up where you can set the projection to stereographic and maybe drag the "planet" into position. Just close the preview again and press the "Create panorama"-button.
Here are some good tutorials to get you started, especially the one on "Creating 360 enfused panoramas" explains the advanced usage of Hugin quite good. You can also find some good Hugin Tutorials on youtube

Thanks - you're right, they do look like planets - a quite adequate description.
