Going for broke

Ok, this is my last pano for at least a week...maybe. I went for maximum resolution on this one with 34 vertical images. For any of you geeks out there, the final stitched pano was 27576 x 4106 or 113 megapixels. I had to restart Photoshop after every change I did because it kept running out of memory. I don't know if that's a testament to file size or the sad state of my computer, but it was a first for me nonetheless. Here it is.

Please do me a favor and click here to see the BIG version. When it comes up, click the zoom icon and check out the detail. I wish I could have posted an even larger version, but neither Photobucket or Flickr will allow very large files. This is my first time shooting panos in this way, and I'm totally blown away with the level of detail that can be achieved.

I was thinking of talking about my process for shooting panos in the next post. Please sound off in the comments if you'd be interested or if you've had enough of panoramas for a while.

Dude that is totally wicked. I love it, that's the best yet. I can't believe it's that large and the details are amazing. The resolution numbers are getting up there, pretty soon it will be as large as the federal deficit.

I would love to hear a tutorial post, I'm all about that.

Right now everything is brown around here since we got those few warm days, but if it snows again before spring, I'll try to shoot some. If not it will be springtime.

Thanks again for sharing.

I seriously don't know how you do it without the tripod.

Nice one!

I'd love to know your general workflow and the apps being well as considerations while snaping the pics!
