This is a 66 image composite of a chapel in the Pretoria area.
Taken entirely under natural light conditions (only light from the side windows), with exposure times ranging from 4 to 15 seconds.
FOV: 360 x 116 degrees.

The image shown is one quarter the size of the original.
If the quality appears to be really poor, it's because the forum's computer scaled a 1.3MB file down to 202kb.
A better quality version (1.2MB) version is available here: http://i42.photobuck...0-3614x3614.jpg

Seems familiar ? Wonder why. :)
Decided to share it here as well.
Fairly proud of it, since it was a first attempt at indoor panoramic imaging under natural lighting.
Believe me, the lighting poses it's own set of problems.

The entire series of images was done under full manual control.
ISO 200, F4 @ 15 seconds gives idea of how low the light levels were at places.



Took approximately an hour to do the imaging,

Trying out a different software package for processing.
Better stitching capability, but still took 4 hours to create the master panorama.
Incidently, the program also stated that the 'master', if printed, would have dimensions somewhere around 6.7m x 2.5m.

Viewing on a proper computer screen is essential.

That's a 180 x 360 polar panorama.
You will notice that he chose a non-sunny day to do this, since bright sun causes high-contrast areas, which can (sometimes) ruin the aesthetics of the image.

Another interesting aspect, is the clever incorporation of the overhead branch.

Thanks for the link. Image duly added to my library for future reference.
