This 360° panorama features Maurice Harron's sculpture “Hands Across The Divide” which stands at Carlisle Circus, in Derry, N.Ireland.
The panorama was created by combining 24 separate digital photographs covering every angle and with bracketed exposures. Hence the detail has been captured both in the brightest areas of the sky and in the shadows between the statues.
It is presented here in a form suitable for printing through the use of what is known as a “stereographic projection” whereby a rectangular panoramic image can be rendered as if on a globe.
This image also appears on the Cafe Press website as part of a Photographic calendar of Derry-themed panoramic photographs.
Because of the way that it was created this is a very high resolution image (the equivalent of about 80-megapixels). It's 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″-6″ mat
- 36″x36″ and frame it with no mat, or with one up to 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!
