Panorama - Djurgården bridge and "planet"

Click image for larger version

I was going to Skansen to see the Midsommers Eve celebration, but there was so much people standing in line ... se belew the small pano of the line .. made from extracted images from a small video sequence ).

So I went to the Djurgarden Bridege where they have a small sand "beach" , where you can rent a canoe and paddle away. I thought that may be a suitable motif for a sunny panorama. So up with the old 350d with the Peleng 8mm and fire away. As I dont have a pano head I take 8 images around as well as one of the sky and one of the ground and stitch them manually in Photoshop.
The resulting big 360x180 panorama can be seen if you click the link. FULL SCREEN PANORAMA

Below, a "planet" version of the panorama. Tutorials can be found HERE.

I also like to view all 360 degrees at once. Its not often you can do that. Heres the panoram before exported to the MAKE CUBIC ( free ) softwre from Apple that makes a QTVR file of it.

There are a lot of software to make panoramas. In Photoshop there are simpler tools to make non interactive panoramas ( Extended is more advanced ). A FREE very good software is Hugin.
