Bloody hell... Zoomed in, it's incredible. One can almost see individual people in the offices!

Sigh* Thanks for the visit and comments, too bad you can't see the original. Panoramio limits uploads to 50 megapixel while the original was over 150 megapixel, I had to downsize this by a factor of 3 to get it to upload. Cheers --- Ken

Do you use Hugin to stitch? The pano is worthy of selling prints in the tourist shop. again very nice!

Kenneth Kruse on December 28, 2011

Thanks again Dave, I have used Hugin but not for this one. I first processed each of the 3 shot brackets in Photomatix then stitched them in Photoshop CS3. There was a stitching error all the way down the center I cleaned up using the clone tool and another apparent on this one that I only recently noticed, it's above the left bridge. The most difficult part of processing this was getting the color right, I first did some global levels tweaks to each of the RGB channels, after getting the majority of the image where I wanted the color I then made a few feathered selections and repeated the color adjustments at the local level. This was necessary because the mixed lighting sources caused areas of unnatural color casts.
