Three conditions are needed: 1. The right equipment: very long telephoto lens, very sturdy tripod... 2. The right weather: clear but cloudy, otherwise the sun heats the air which creates blurrs. 3. A lot of time and patience: - Before shooting: the right weather conditions are rare... - When shooting: you have to wait for the sun to lit the subject, then take several photos to get one really crisp - When processing: a lot of photoshop work is needed to remove the haze...

How do you manage to get crisp photos at such a distance?

Thanks!I did shoot the whole pano in automatic exposure mode (speed initially 1/125th, at night about 1s). The new version has been delayed because I spent last 5 weeks trying to solve many severe computer problem...

Good work. Looking forward to seeing your new version, though I think this one is quite nicely finished.

Very nice! The day/night effect is inspiring. Did you adjust/change your shutter speed along the way?

Thanks, Mattu. I do usually use the "orientation" Tool in ICE - but I guess I failed on this draft! By the way, congratulations for your own panoramas. The Yosemite Falls one is impressive!

mattu (Over 1 year ago)
I've enjoyed your recent uploads to Photosynth. With this result you should use the "orientation" Tool in ICE. This will let you adjust where the horizon is, so that the building is upright and rotation in Photosynth will be more natural.
