Shot with a Canon 5D, Sigma 12-24mm (at 12mm)
3 rows, 12 shots each (overkill )
Stitched with Autopano Pro (fantastic program, by the way) and converted to flash with Pano2VR (in trial mode).
I had some obvious problems with the nadir but I this was only a test.
This is Marin County, California. You can see George Lucas' Big Rock Ranch
Google Earth Coordinates:
My parents lived between Vallejo and Benicia for years (and I lived there for about a year myself)... this pano invokes some good memories of my exploration trips around the area.
On another, more sillier note... I wish demo/trial software would put something more interesting than "xxx Program - Trial" all over the image... they should put inspirational sayings, or maybe knock knock jokes... or random obscene words! Maybe that's why nobody has asked me to write software. Ho hum
Ah - flash back - this my old backyard and have been up and down most of these hills by bike and hike. I also did a bit of work for George back in the day when they were building Skywalker Ranch (unfortunately not photography). The Ranch is huge - 4700 acres and he paid 100 mil for it. Big Rock Ranch was built next door with over 1000 acres but I believe is near vacant when they moved to the Presidio in San Francisco. Hey - we even sell a few pano heads to them each year as well.
Your first attempts at doing full spherical panoramas are excellent - bit of tweaking here and there but you seem to have the workflow down.
Thanks for sharing.
