Our friend Dieter from Munich, German  was visiting  New Jersey recently and took this photo worth mentioning.

 

Location: Pier C Park, Hudson River, Hoboken New Jersey looking across the rive to Manhattan New York City.

 

The photo is a Cylinder... think paper label on tin can.  It is 79,220 wide x 7,000 pixels high. 

 

It is comprised of 2,700 individual images stitched together to make 1 large image. 

 

The image is around 500 megabyte and will "stream" only the image portions that you are looking at to your computer.

 

Clicking the circle cross hair markers will pop up small object of interest information box  like the new World Trade Center building.

Dieter Lukas has done several hundred panoramas, Architecture, events, sports action and attractions.

 

I am sure you will enjoy his venue and professional approach to seeing what he sees through his lens.

That's really beautiful. 

 

It's sort of amazing how "easy" it is to take panoramas today. My 200$ cell phone will do 360 pano's that are fairly clear with no problem. It's amazing how far camera tech has come.

Dieter Lukas provided some explanation last night.

 

Dieter reply
"Here some more detailed technical data of that panorama:

Camera: Nikon D800
Lens: Nikon AFS 70-200/4 VR @ 105mm
f/8
1/750 sec.
ISO100
No Tripod, means freehand (but very concentrated)

This part of the panorama shows the area of 31 pictures (portrait-orientation) - 1 row only."

 

The reference to 2700 images was because the stitched 31 portrait photos were cube face sliced into 10 zoom/in tiles levels which helps with the high resolution and the ability to see so much detail zoomed in.

 

I would suspect it would take a while to learn how to accomplish such a task...  not for the faint hearted photographer.

 

And yes most newer smart phones have an application that will let you take and assemble cylinder 360° panoramas.

Great picture, 360.  Thanks.  Any idea what the giant gnome is doing there?  Makes the picture that much more interesting.

Lollll... well you are quite observant. 

 

It is true that for the last 9 years we have been beta testing software and on location field testing for a company named Garden Gnome Software whose home office is in Vienna Austria. 

 

We really enjoy Photoshop too.

I loved the Manhattan panorama.  I also noticed the giant gnome on the sidewalk next to the Kennedy Memorial.

Powers of observation are important.  Knowing how to use Photoshop to make objects appear to be normal in imaging is a good thing too.

 

The Garden Gnome enjoyed the afternoon outing and that is a good thing too..
