Hey Garret, thanks (just FBed ya). This is something like my 7th or 8th time, only once in the main though. I think you have a lot left to shoot, but I'm sorry, I'll bag what I can, when I can. ;-) Tomorrow I'm hoping to bag 4-Aces/Al's Gas Station! Besides, look who nailed Suicide Bridge in Pasadena. Phsssbt!

Also, IMO, your series is overexposed by about 1/2 to 2/3 of a stop. I shoot almost everything at least 1/2 stop under, and if it is a dark or high contrast scene, I'll shoot it HDR with 3 to 7 exposures per field. This one here, was NOT shot HDR, and I kinda wish I had...

Henrytoro, did you read the FB message I sent? Looking at your first post on Photosynth, it looks like your nodal position my be off a bit. W/o knowing what you are using for your equipment, it is hard to give you a silver-bullet fix. Can you take a pic of your setup, with the camera in place and post it to FB. That'll help a lot.

great work again but I can't get your results using MS ICE. little help? thanx

Thank you Michio, but with Microsoft's ICE program it is rather easy. With the right equipment, there is an option to generate the spherical in "Structured" mode. Since I use an indexed pano-head (a 303SPH Manfrotto), this shot was from a 24mm lens and contained 61 images. The hard part is the cloud movement.

Hello Jason, it all depends on the pixel density you are looking for. I can get 2-3 Giga-pixel images out of this one, though I usually shoot around 400-500mp. Take a look at these home-made sites, and see if you are at that skill level: http://wiki.panotools.org/Heads#Self_made If not, let me know how much you want to spend, and I'll try to point you in the right direction.

Yikes, that's an expensive pano-head. Can you recommend any lower-priced ones? Cool shots.
