5D3 19 image pano
This is a small (1/6th 72dpi) version of what otherwise is a 310 megapixel pano made out of 19 vertical (portrait) 5D Mark III images.



Technicalities:
Canon 5D Mark III + 100-400L at 400mm + TCx1.4 (pins taped), on a tripod and with remote cable trigger.
Manual exposure f/10, 1/800sec, ISO 400
Processing: ACR6.7 to handle initial RAW conversion, then PS CS6 Merge

The reason I cranked up ISO: there was a lot of wind and I wanted to avoid camera shake blur at effective 640mm focal length, so I wanted something faster than 1/640s.

Awesome image!

Are you going to have it printed and if so to what size(I definitely think it needs to be hanging somewhere)?

Lastly, have you any idea what this is(noticed it while admiring the full size image)?

Thanks guys!

I don't have any printing intentions at the moment.

This white thingie surrounded by some circumferenced spikes appears to be this:

I honestly have no idea what kind of installation it can be . If you happend to know - please share, I'm curios myself. The road to it seems to be gated, so there is no way for me to get even remotely close for a better shot...

FWIW, the beeline distance from the camera is about 20 miles...

Awesome shot!

The white thing is the Fillmore VOR, which is used for aircraft navigation.

You did, you did...:-)
I have a few people at work who were guessing along the same lines, but nobody till Brad produced an exact technical ID :-). It would be like me saying "it's a dslr with some long lens" and you saying "yes, it's a Canon EOS 1D Mk IV with a 400/2.8L Mk II and TCx2 Mk III extender"

The image looks great, but it seems to have a yellow/green cast to me. Dragging the small sized image into PS and boosting the blue channel in curves made for a much more natural color to my eye. Not that that's the fix for it, but it does seem to have a color cast. Is it just me? My monitor's calibrated...

David, your monitor (and your eys) are fine. This is the way I wanted it.

Awesome scene, super technicals and great job stitching, Nik. Processing isn't quite my cup of tea, but I can see the appeal.
