Dubai Downtown at dusk | UAE

DubaiDubai Downtown Gigapan at dusk | 320 megapixels, August 1, 2011

Dubai Downtown GigaPan was shot on August 1, 2011 at around 19:35. It was stitched from 45 images taken with the Canon 550D (t2i) and the Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM Telephoto Zoom Lens at 200mm. I also used the Manfrotto Tripod 055CXPRO3 Carbon Fiber + Manfrotto 468MGRC4 Magnesium Hydrostatic Ballhead. As for the pano head, I used the GigaPan Epic Pro robot.
The shoot took 5 minutes and the resulting GigaPan is equivalent of a 320 Megapixels image.
Regarding the aspect ration, I have decided to go for a 1:1 ratio for a change. So far i like it so much. What to you think?

A big thank you to Charbel for offering his place for the shooting.

Ronquières Inclined Plane GigaPan | Belgium

Ronquières Inclined Plane GigaPan | 1.16 Gigapixels, May 31, 2011

The Ronquières Inclined Plane is a Belgian canal inclined plane on the Brussels-Charleroi Canal in the province of Hainaut in Wallonia that opened in April 1968 after a six year construction period. It is located in the municipality of Braine-le-Comte, and takes its name from the nearby village of Ronquières.
The purpose of the construction was to reduce the delays imposed by the fourteen locks (already reduced from sixteen in the nineteenth century) which had hitherto been needed for the canal to follow the local topography. Source Wikipedia:ères_inclined_plane
