Featured in four RedBubble groups – see History section for details.

This 360° panoramic image was shot outside Mange Tout restaurant, at Timber Quay, on the riverfront in Derry.

It was taken In June 2009 during the “Foyle Days” festival on the River Foyle.

It was shot at Timber Quay just along the riverfront from the offices of Derry City Council.

This area was, until a couple of decades ago, part of a bustling cargo quay. Now, the cargo port having moved down river, the quayside has been redeveloped with riverside apartment blocks, restaurants, and through the railings can be seen the Derry City “Pontoon Marina” with many boats tied up for a weekend celebrating the river.

Across the river are the trees of St Columb′s Park.

Method
The panorama was created from twenty seven separate digital photographs, covering every angle and with bracketed exposures (from +2 to -2 stops). They were combined into a single high-resolution, panoramic, high dynamic range image. The source images were shot on a Canon EOS 5d DSLR with a 16mm fish-eye lens and stitched and blended together using Hugin, a free open source program. Hugin in turn invoked the program Enfuse to combine the bracketed exposures to create the mild HDR effect.

Because of the way that it was created this is a very high resolution image. 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”

I have three collections here of stereographic panoramas like this one, they are panoramas of:

        Donegal           Derry
   
      The Aran Islands
