The source images for this panorama were shot on a Canon EOS 5d DSLR Mk II with a Canon 15mm fisheye lens.


This panorama takes in about a 300° view along the river Foyle from Foyle Marina to Derry City Centre. It was featured in its Virtual Reality form on the WorldWide Panorama Best of 2014 selection. It is best viewed as a full screen VR

The Foyle Marina is on the left in front of Derry City Council offices. The cycle-track and footpath heads along the right hand side towards Derry City centre with the sunrise behind Ebrington Square.

The trees silhouetted in the centre are in St Columb’s Park.

The Raw images were shot at 9:00 am on 30th December 2014, just as dawn was breaking over the River.

Until the latter half of the twentieth century this was a thriving cargo port. The straight lines in the concrete are the remnants of tramlines that guided cranes along the quayside. Next to the spot where this panorama was shot was once the location of the Glasgow Shed and the Liverpool Shed where cargo, including livestock, waited to be loaded onto ships.

The last remnants of the cargo port moved down river twenty five, or more, years ago. In recent years the riverside has been developed with foot and cycle paths, the Foyle Marina, Derry City Council office building and apartment complexes. New restaurants and cafes have opened along the river.

Method

  1. This High Dynamic Range (HDR) panoramic image was created by combining 49 separate digital photographs covering every angle and with bracketed exposures (mid and +/- 1,2,3 stops). Hence the detail has been captured both in the brightest areas of the sky and the buildings in shadow.

#The source images were shot on a Canon EOS 5d DSLR Mk II with a Canon 15mm 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.
