This 360° panoramic image was shot on Ferryquay Street in Derry just after sunset on New year's day 2008. The Christmas decorations were still in place as the shoppers visit the New year sales.
The dark street to the left is Artillery Street, with the Java coffee shop on the corner leads up past the, now refurbished, Playhouse Theatre. To the right Market Street leads past the Halo Pantry and Grill to Derry‘s other major entertainment venue The Millennium Forum.
The large form in the lower part of the image is Ferryquay Gate - one of the four original archways through the historic city walls.
Straight ahead lies Ferryquay Street leading, past the shoppers to The Diamond, the centre of the walled city.
The panorama was created by combining 24 separate digital photographs covering every angle and with bracketed exposures. These were blended into a rectangular panorama that was then rendered as this characteristic shamrock shape by using a Stereographic transformation.
Because of the way that it was created this is a very high resolution image (the equivalent of about 80-megapixels). It is capable of delivering very fine detail even when printed at massive sizes.
It can be printed so large that it tests the limits of Imagekind‘s framing service. You could print it at: - 24″x24″ and frame it with a 4″ to 6″ mat - 36″x36″ and frame it with no mat at all, or with one up to a 2" - 36″x36″ on canvas - 44″x44″ on paper and have it framed elsewhere.
At sizes up to 24″ square it will look good. At the larger sizes it is a real stunner!
George Row, Derry Member Since December 2009 Artist Statement I've been a computer programmer, an academic, a website producer, but I've always been a Photographer. At present my specialty is Panoramic Photography. I like the challenge - after a decade of making panoramas I'm still learning!
My early 360° panoramas were for immersive virtual reality (on the computer). Now I'm exploring printing. The "stereographic projection" turns the immersive panorama into a "little planet"- as if the landscape's horizon was the edge of a globe.
I live in Derry in Northern Ireland my early panoramas were of Derry and its surroundings. My website veryderry.com provides a virtual tour of the city.
Now I’ve shot panoramas all over Ireland. I'll be adding them to my gallery.
