Photographer's Note

This photo is better viewed in its large version.

This is another linear panorama from the series of panoramas I am doing on Le Landeron, Switzerland.

This image replaces the two-line version that I previously posted. Sorry for the small size and large border (read below for a partial explantion).

This image is composed of 25-30 seperate images. The full size image, as it sits on my computer, is 27'600 x 3460 and takes up 270MB. Each scene is composed of at least 3 sperate images. There is not a single automated stitch left untouched. The close range of the images and the linear nature of the panorama results in a horrible amount of paralax from one photo to the next.

First I stitch a couple of images together. There is never an acceptable stitch so I edit each scene by hand; generally cutting out a specific object from the original photo and pasting it into the assemblage. A very complex scene may require 5 or 6 objects to fix the parralx shift.

Total amount of work here so far is about 60 hours. The full scene, when completed will be nearly 3 times the length currently shown. (If I don't go blind before that making all the edits)

The unusual dimensions (8:1) of this type of panorama will not upload to TE; the maximum length of an image on TE is 800 and the minimum (including height is 250). At 800 pixels, the full panorama of this scene is only about 100 pixels high and requires massive borders to obtain the 250 minimum.
