Powell's books is a favorite book chain in Portland, Oregon. This store is located on the east side of the Willamete river in Portland, Oregon. I took this photo using a Canon G9, conversion lens adapter, and a Canon Tele-converter TC-DC58C 2x on a Gigapan beta robot. (35 mm film equivalent focal length of 400 mm ) It took 288 jpegs at ISO 400, f4.8. I stitched the resulting image using the Gigapan stitcher 4.3864. I wanted to repeat this panorama with focus on the closer objects and merge the two panoramas, but I would have interfered too much with the employees ability to get their job done. I will fuse focus from two series of photos with different focus on a subject later and I will post both the fused focus and single focus so that you may compare them.

    This panorama required persistance to post. I used a new lens and had to set a new vertical FOV. I started taking this panorama three times. While stitching the photos together there was a voltage sag and I did not have the computer connected to the battery backup. I started to edit the photo, but I found that I was not able to really improve the panorama and it takes a long time to do things to a panorama this size. Then I had difficulty uploading it. Finally my persistance was rewarded and this image is posted on Gigapan. I really wanted to take a second series of shots with the near objects in focus and then blend the two panoramas together so that everything would be in focus. Next time :)
