Epic 100


A shot on an overcast day of Bristol floating harbour, looking down on The SS Great Britain (The first iron hulled, screw propellor driven liner) designed by Isambard Kingdom Brunel. Next to it is the Matthew, a replica of the ship in which John Cabot sailed on his discovery of North America in 1497. The harbour is called the "floating harbour" because the river here is tidal and the water is held in by locks. I forgot to set this to save as a tiff so that I could make adjustments and it took so long to stitch that it will have to wait. This shot is 600 superfine, large JPEGs and took 15 hours to stitch. I seem to be getting better and working at the lowest iso rating with no image stabilisation has greatly improved the definition. A shot twice as wide, taking in much more of the harbour, is in the offing when we get the next sunny day!! Here is the first attempt www.gigapan.org/viewGigapan.php?id=27418

    A classic shot Keith. The geocoding is off though - the system steers like a cow I know, but I think it is worth the effort learning to get the viewing angle correct (yours is about 150ยบ degrees off).

    Keith, This is a notable GigaPan with lots to discover and is most rewarding as a historical GigaPan. This may be your best effort so far :)
