Detailed image of numerous events going on in Boston. Many hidden jewels buried in this photograph.
This would have been a great GigaPan photo, if it
wasn't spoilt by so many weird added parts.
Different angles and intensities of shadow can
easily be explained by layers taken at different
times of day (or different days entirely).
However, you cannot say that the Monarch butterfly
is real and was ever there. For a start the shadow
is ridiculously wrong, but more than that - you
can zoom in to it's wings enough to see the
watermark. Last time I checked Monarch butterflies
don't have naturally-occuring watermarks on
their wings. Same can be said about the 'Jean
Luc Picard' person (snapshot 'Works for
Captain James T. Kirk) - that has obviously been
photoshopped in. For one it looks hand-drawn, and
secondly even if it were a real person - from that
distance there is no way they would have known you
were taking a picture - not just because of the
distance, but the fact the camera was pointed away
from them so they wouldn't know the lens was
wide enough to pick them out. Should have left the
photo in it's original state, and not messed
While the overall photo is great, I must say there
is some photoshopping going on here, for instance
the 'girl with the blue binder' has been
added after the fact. (shadow intensity is wrong,
shadows missing across her clothing, feet not
quite touching the ground, bluring around her
outline, etc..) Nothing wrong with being creative
as long as it is mentioned up front.
the butterfly snapshot is rather cheesy. the
shadow of cars and that of light poles and
pedestrians are all different directions. I wont
even mention the butterflies shadow... good job
though... but cheesy.
Dear Eric B. I really like what you've done
here. I am trying to do something similar and
would love your advice. Can you write me via email@example.com ? Thanks, Will A.
shadows casting off to your right and left...
Yeah, okay... Two thumbs down!
Theres allot of photoshoping going on in this one
Don't need to Photoshop the large file. You
add Waldo, butterfly, whatever to the individual
shots before they are stitched.
Why so much Photoshopping?? Waldo is funny, but
once you realize it's Photoshopped, it's
not as cool. The pano is cool enough on its own
without adding so many things that are clearly
how on earth are you able to use photoshop on
these large files? i sure as hell can't :(
Is that eagle real? Or a statue to keep pigeons
away? AMc Wisconsin
Ha ha. Photoshopped butterfly.
Well done! this is a nice image. Can i ask what
equipment you used?
I found Wally, hahahaha. Nice one.
The Grandiose spectacle,shocking permit of the
This image was taken repeatedly over about a
30-day period with different lighting conditions
and different cameras that were then combined.
This resulted in some image elements looking less
natural then others. However, almost all events
happened more or less as shown at some time during
It would have been nicer if those things to
explore where real. Many of those people you have
added to the pictures are so obvious that they
have been cut out of other pictures. Next time try
to edit them better. Overall this is a great
This is one of best exploration gigapan's
I've seen. Looks like multiple gigas with many
added elements. I'd love to know how many days
of post work the author put into it.
This is a great introduction to gigapan--except
that it's so much fun, I can't tear myself
away to look at other photos (or go back to work)!
Fun & beautiful!
FANTASTIC pano, bookmarked
