This is a 360° panoramic image taken on the historic walls of Derry City. It was shot at a corner of the walls known as the “Double Bastion”, outside the old red-brick primary school building that now houses The Verbal Arts Centre. The view encompasses the Bogside and the Creggan residential areas of the city with the hills of County Donegal behind them.
The two canons shown here date from the time of the siege of Derry at the end of the seventeenth century.
The panorama was created from twenty seven separate digital photographs, covering every angle and with bracketed exposures. They were combined into a single high-resolution, panoramic, high dynamic range image.
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!
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.
