History of this Image at RedBubble
This image was uploaded to RedBubble on
This HDR (High Dynamic Range) panorama was created by combining 27 separate digital photographs covering every angle and with bracketed exposure. Hence there is detail both in the most brightly lit areas and in the shadows.
The Source images were shot 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.
