Croke Park

By paulcr
Took this last year at Dublin V Armagh match in Croke park Dublin. Was never able to upload it 'til now. Croke Park is now an 82000 seater stadium and one of the biggest in Europe.
This is a stitch of 5 shots taken with a small pentax optio 320 compact. It is now enlarged to about 1mtr wide and hanging in the local.

Nice project.
Isn't it good when there is an end result.
The facts that you have produced a 1 metre wide print and it is hung in your local,makes it all worth while.
Well done

Thanks Glyndwr, wasn't even sure it would turn out well at all on the small compact. Reproduced very satisfactorily. Paul

A sweeping and colourful panoramic Paul, and I bet it looks very good indeed printed large and on the pub wall. I think I can see a stitch line just to right of the 2 guys in white coats. Did you stitch manually or use software?

The large version is a must, the colours look great and there is so much to see. One of those shots that keep you looking for ages

Well done this looks really good, even with the compact! Can't really see the stitching at this size, how does it look printed up?
