Those source images were shot in Raw mode on a Canon EOS 5D with a 16mm Zenitar Manual Focus fisheye lens mounted via an EOS adapter. They were shot in groups of three bracketed exposures (from -2 stops to +2 stops).


The Kilkeel river starts in the Silent Valley, in County Down, N. Ireland, where it has been dammed to fill a reservoir that is used to supply Belfast and the surrounding areas with water. It flows from there to the Irish Sea, which it enters at the fishing town of Kilkeel.


Method

  1. This full 360° high dynamic range panorama was created by combining 27 separate photographs covering every angle and with bracketed exposures.

Those source images were shot in Raw mode on a Canon 5D with a 16mm Zenitar Manual Focus fisheye lens mounted via an EOS adapter. They were shot in groups of three bracketed exposures (from -2 stops to +2 stops).

They were then stitched and blended together using a program called Hugin, which in turn invoked a program called Enfuse to create the High Dynamic Range effect.


This 360° panorama was shot on stepping stones that cross the Kilkeel River below Hanna’s Close .

The steps are made from huge lumps of the local granite which is a characteristic of the mountains and the dry stone walls in the area.

Hanna’s Close is one of two “Clachans” in Northern Ireland that have been preserved and given an official listing as historic buildings.

The Clachan was a type of small traditional settlement common in Ireland and Scotland for hundreds of years. It usually consisted of a small cluster of single-storey cottages, lacking a church, or other formal building.
