Damn, there is a steep learning curve in this type of imaging, especially if one goes the whole hog regarding POV.
Previously did up to 360x120 degree, and the final panoramas (before polar conversions) were fairly large and cumbersome to work with.
The master composite for these two PP images is a whopping 480MB PNG file (compressed), and comprises 115 photos. I should have used a focal length of 28mm, but used 38mm instead. So one learns.

Obviously, the PPs shown are heavily scaled down.

The first is an Inverse Polar Panorama, and, as can be seen, is a variant on the second image.
Technically, this is how one would see the scene if lying on your back, with a field of view of 180 degrees.

Those are beautiful! I especially like the first one :)

Thanks Diva.

I'm starting to wonder if I should post some mini tutorials on this forum for this type of imaging.


Anyone interested ?
