Sloane Square

By mshepherd
I can finally afford to renew e2, so its time to reload a reworked version of my Sloane Square globe with the option to view large...

...Fundamentally itís the same shot I loaded at the end of 2006 but the stitching is improved through the use of PTgui over Autostitch (compare the paving in the centre of both)

The colour management has also improved (I hope!), This image was created from the RAW files rather than the low res jpegs and processed as a 16 bit file through PTgui into a layered PS file (2gb!). After cleaning its been converted into a sphere using Helmut Dersch's Remap filter (Rather than the polar co-ords tool in PS CS that only works in 8 bit).

Finally I have also used the Pinch filter in PS to decrease the globe slightly. (Following Ant's (aj_h)) comments on the last globe)

Comments and feedback welcomed.

Thanks for looking.

I like the abstract nature of this. Very good stitchery.

Incredible. The big version is a must. Now we just need a way to rotate these sorts of images in EPZ. Um...Pete?? (Users are never happy, are I like this one better too.

Like it! I think it might be even better if you rotate it 90 degrees clockwise, which would bring the big beautiful tree to the top.

A beautiful twinkly, golden world.
I shall make a point of landing there next time I'm passing.

A good job indeed, you can really see the difference in the paving slabs. Cheers for the info on the processing.

This effect look like far too much hard work for me so I am glad you are doing it so well
