This is a 360° panoramic image taken on the historic walls of Derry City. It was shot at a corner of the walls known as the “Double Bastion”, outside the old red-brick school building that now houses “The Verbal Arts Centre”. The former “First Derry Primary” school is now a listed historic building.

The view encompasses the Bogside and the Creggan residential areas of the city with the hills of County Donegal behind them.

The two cannons shown here date from the time of the siege of Derry in 1689.The panorama was created from twenty seven separate digital photographs, covering every angle and with multiple exposures bracketed in groups of three from +2 stops to -2 stops.

These images were combined into a single high-resolution, panorama by the program Hugin. Hugin in turn invoked the programs Nona to blend the seams and Enfuse to create the high dynamic range effect by blending the bracketed exposures.

The source images were shot on a Canon EOS 5d DSLR with a 16mm fisheye lens and stitched and blended together using Hugin, a free open source program.Because of the way that it was created this is a very high resolution image (the equivalent of about 80-megapixels). It′s capable of delivering very fine detail even when printed at massive sizes.I have written a short journal entry introducing the method by which these panoramas are created, it is called:

“Creating a Stereographic Panorama – the Basic Idea”
