While not as good as the panoramic I posed several days ago, this one is of a slightly different nature. This was taken in virtually the same spot as the last one (the top of a parking garage). The small building right in front of the sun is the building in the left in the previous panoramic. See larger version.
This is a compilation of 10 vertical shots and has almost the same aspect ratio as the previous panoramic, but with larger dimentions. The final cropped image is 12735x3025 (around 38.5 megapixels). Again, the exif data is taken from one of the photos (they were all the same), so essentially 25mm x 10. The stitching was a pain, mainly because I don't think I took quite enough images so the perspective was stretched further than it should have been between some of the pictures.
Most of the stitching wasn't too bad actually, except for the bulding on the left. Half of it was in one picture and half in another creating a perspective nightmare. I didn't think to take a shot of it head on. After messing around with the perspective of the photo furthest to the left and trying to match it up as best I could, you can still see the cut (middle corner). If you look closely the windows (and hence the floors) don't line up. The horizon to the left of the building also doesn't quite match. Ok, now how many of you noticed that before you read it? ;)
Thanks for all of your input on yesterday's question. I really aprreciate the analysis. I might dive into it some more tomorrow. My final for the summer class I am taking is on Friday, so we'll see.
