    Subject: The Royal Wedding panorama as you have never seen before

    What a magnificent day, if you are a lunatic like me

    Went to the wedding with my high photographic pole on Thursday afternoon and waited to the big moment on Friday 12:35


    Then carry the fucking pole on my shoulders all the way to Piccadilly as all the roads were closed to find a taxi before the heart attack get into me


    Shit day but amazing result

    So enjoy the panorama as you are in it with the crowd

    Click on the full screen button once loaded and travel with the Royals

    can you spot me in the panorama at the bottom holding the pole

    Great shot

    Excellent Idea to include fly Past.

    I'm not so sure it was such a good idea. 2 billion people know that the fly past occurred when the happy couple were out on the balcony, so it's obviously a fake photograph.

    It is sufficiently obvious to make it a composite. which is fine by me. I think there was more composite work in the shot. It has created a memory of the day rather than reality.

    I did not know that the fly by took place later. I did not watch the wedding.

    Seems to me that every panorama we produce is a composite and not a 100% accurate rendering of the scene. Unless you can take the entire 360x180 sphere in one shot, you are doing a composite of one type or another.

    Dennis, Do you really not see the difference between the inevitable (but minimal) tiny discrepancies resulting from the mechanics of the stitching process and the deliberate creation of a false view of a public event? It's fair enough to approve of the result or not care one way or the other, but to pretend that there's no difference ....

    thanks for sharing your work - were you actually allowed to raise the pole in a crowd like that? I would have thought security to come running. Just think if someone bumped into you. Also curious that no one is looking "at" the couple and many people are looking in opposite direction :-)
    clever adapt of interpretation
