360 Degree pano taken from the top of Coit Tower – 8 shots (of the 72 I took – 8 sides, 3 windows, 3 bracketted shots) – only used 1 per side. Imported in Lightroom 2 Beta, Stitched in CS3, final edits and export back in Lightroom.





If you have shockwave, see it in rotating perspective here http://fieldofview.com/flickr/?page=...nan/2586770364

Otherwise, here is the flickr page http://www.flickr.com/photos/chriscallanan/2586770364/ Click All Sizes for Large or then click original if you want the 8000 pixel wide version (the actual original is over 15,000 pixels wide)

Wow is right! This is really nice - I've never managed to match exposure so well. Well done!

Fantastic shot, or should I say shots. Very very well done.

I remember the city being bigger than that. I can barely see the bay. I certainly wouldn't be out in those ant sized boats.

Suggestion, if your going to post a long panorama please post something that is large enough to actually see.

Very cool!! Was just there in 2002 for our 20th wedding anniversary. Never thought of doing such a shot. Great idea.

I went to your flicker sight, looked at the original and really, really liked it. Clear as abell, great exposure and beautiful color. It needs to be up on your wall. As in most cases, all the workyou did to get the final shot was worth it.

Thanks for all the great comments!! Doing the shot was actually my wife's idea When we got up there and I saw all the people, and then the plexiglass over all the windows, I just sort of dismissed it - then she told me I should do it... so I did I usually don't like doing panos handheld, but this one worked out ok... Next time I'll do it with vertical shots instead...

If I do print this I want to go back and try and fix a few of the sky mismatches- probably due to the vignetting from the lens... shouldn't be too hard to remove...

Any suggestions on where one might print something like this? Without spending an arm and a leg?
