Title: Planet Chicago

Capture Date/Time: February 28 2004 13:45
Camera: Nikon Coolpix 4500
Mount: Kaidan QuickPan 360 Panoramic Tripod Head
Lens: No Converter
Focal Length: 7.8mm
Aperture/Shutter Speed: 18 separate images at F/7.5 - 1/500 sec
ISO: 100
Flash: No
Notes: Panoramic Image stitched in Realviz Sticher then "planetized" in Photoshop

I dedicate today's post to Ana Cortez whose work introduced me to the Create Your Own Planets Flickr Pool. This shot was originally featured as part of a panorama series featured on my old website that I followed the planetize process on and got some assistance from my friend and fellow photographer Mark Wisniowski on refining the final image. I look forward to experimenting with the process more in the future!

Yeah, this is something I've been meaning to try. I've seen it at flikr and a few other places. Could be fun.

Hmmm, exactly what did Mark help you with on this? And what if we wanted to create something like this and didn't have a Mark Wisniowski to help us refine the image using his godly skills at 3D? lol. But seriously, I will have a go at one this weekend, I think. I checked out the walk through and they're really clearly explained with the imagery to go with it. I just want to make my first attempt really good.
