This 360° panoramic image was shot in Derry‘s Guildhall Square on the first Saturday of September 2008, whenthe local street market known as “The Walled City Market” was taking place.
On one side of the square stands the distinctive gothic-style sandstone building known as the “Guildhall”. It serves many civic functions, it houses the Council Chamber in which Derry City Council meets, and the Mayor‘s Parlour, where the Mayor receives visitors.
The Guildhall opened in 1890 after the original town hall in the Diamond - the centre of the walled city - was burnt down. On the other side of the square are the historic city walls. They date from the 17th century and are amongst the last entact city walls in Europe.
The panorama was created by combining 27 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 inside the stalls.
There are two versions of this panorama here. One has the sky on the outside and one has it in the middle which do you prefer?.
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.
