Description

Here's Government Plaza in Minneapolis on a balmy April First. That's Hennepin County Government Center on the left and Minneapolis City Hall on the right.

By merest coincidence, this panorama captured a number of gigapanographers, some more than once. Can you find the following people?

    [in response to a comment which has been deleted] Actually, I think I did pretty well, considering I had to use the profile pictures that were available. It was mostly a process of degrading their color and sharpness to match the background. The background image also has a variety of sharpnesses and motion blurs, as gigapans will do. I'll let the work stand on its own merits.

    Great ploy! Wish I'd really been there! How about a real Gigavention sometime!! Keith

    The idea came from Eric B's famous Boston scene and your penchant for inserting yourself into your gigapans. I'm always trying to find scenes with lots going on and I thought, "why not just add some?" By the way, you appear three more times.

    Tom, you are the Photoshop Master. I prostrate myself before you. Great idea, brilliantly executed.
