  1. 29 th March 2014 Tied for first place in the Panorama Challenge in the group This, That, and the Other Thing

  1. 26 th May 2013 Won the Wide Outdoors challenge in the Low Light group.

The source images were shot on a Canon EOS 5d DSLR with a 16mm fisheye.


Now Moville Shoreline is available as an iPhone cover.
 
This 360° panorama was taken at twilight on the shoreline of Lough Foyle between the town of Moville and the fishing port of Greencastle on the Eastern coast of the Inishowen peninsula in County Donegal, Ireland.

In the nineteenth century Moville was the final embarkation point for many emigrants who left this area for a new life in America. In the mid-twentieth century Moville had many of the qualities of a sea-side town for outings by the population of the City of Derry which lies twenty miles up river.

The panorama is shown here as an equi-rectangular image with a 2:1 aspect ratio, that is, it represents a 360° view left to right and 180°s top to bottom.

The same scene is also available here as a Stereographic panorama:

Method
This High Dynamic Range (HDR) panoramic image was created by combining 27 separate digital photographs covering every angle and with bracketed exposures (mid and +/- 2 stops). Hence the detail has been captured both in the brightest areas of the sky and in the shadows between the rocks. The photographs were shot under pressure as the tide came in, widening the gaps between the rocks on which the tripod stood.

The source images were shot on a Canon EOS 5d DSLR with a 16mm fisheye lens and stitched together using the free open-source program Hugin, which in turn invokes a program called Enfuse to blend the exposures and create the HDR effect.

Because of the way that it was created this is a very high resolution image (the equivalent of about 32-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”
