A Round Town

By Martin54
An unusual perspective on the main street in Market Harborough showing the variety of architecture visble in a full 360 degree view. The timber building on legs is the Old Grammar School, dating from 1614.

Taken at around 7am on Saturday morning under a clear blue sky before the hoards of shoppers arrived.

This is my first attempt at a circular panorama, any comments & suggestions welcome

A bit of technical detail for those interested:

This comprices 7 basic images which make up the 360 degree view, plus an extra one for the top of the curch spire. Each image was taken twice at 0 and +2 exposure due to the variation between sky and buildings. All 16 raw files were then put into PTGUI which crunched them automatically into a linear panorama. This resulting file was then warped using Photoshop's rectangular to polar conversion filter to give the result above.

Well done indeed. The shot looks to have been taken from quite an elevated position. How did you do that?

Rog, actually this was taken at normal eye level. I think the apparent high viewpoint comes from the processing - 7 portrait format shots joined as a linear panorame in PTGUI then wrapped round using the rectangular to polar conversion in photoshop.

Brilliant - I really like something a bit different - Fairplay to try this.
