The source images were shot in Raw-mode on a Canon EOS 5d DSLR with a 16 mm Zenitar fisheye lens.

This stereographic panorama was shot on the main street of the village of Kilcar, in SW Donegal, Ireland.
Kilcar is located on the main tourist route between the fishing port of Killybegs and the sea cliffs of Slieve League (the highest sea cliffs in Europe).
 
This is part of my new postcard range. You can follow on to another gorgeous Very Ireland Post card .
 
Kilcar is promoted as “the gateway to the Donegal Gaeltacht ”. At one end of the main street is a church at the other end are two textile factories. (Donegal’s primary tweed weavers.) In between there are a few shops and five pubs.
 
The two visitors (I guess from the accents that they were German) on the bench outside the pub took a keen interest in watching my back while I took the shots needed for this panorama, calling out “Do not DIE for your art!” whenever a vehicle loomed up. Most drivers were patient – there was only one occasion when I had to grab the tripod and dive for the pavement!

It is one of a pair of stereographic panoramas both generated from the same set of images. The other is

Photographic Method and Processing detail
The panorama was created by combining 27 separate digital photographs covering every angle and with bracketed exposure. Hence the HDR effect with detail both in the most brightly lit areas and in the shadows.
 
Nine separate “shots” were taken: six horizontal at 60° intervals, two down at the ground and one up at the sky. Each “shot” was actually three bracketed exposures: a middle, a +2 stops and a -2 stops.
 
Hugin delegates the generation of the High Dynamic Range effect to a program called “Enfuse” which does the exposure blending it is a close cousin of the “Enblend” program that it invokes for blending the joins.
 
The Source images were shot in Raw-mode on a Canon EOS 5d DSLR with a 16 mmm fisheye lens, and were stitched and blended into a HDR Panorama using Hugin – a free open-source panorama stitching program.
