Oakland – San Francisco Bay Area Twilight (Super-HD Panorama 1:4). Extremely dense smoke particles from a massive grass fire that occurred about 50 miles north-east earlier in the day, are what made this beautiful red twilight possible. 10 vertical images (each 21 megapixels) were photographed with a 400mm lens from high above the city in the Oakland Hills, then digitally stitched to create this “Super-HD Panorama” of the entire Oakland / San Francisco Bay Area. The original image (from which all prints are generated) weighs in at 22,304 x 5576 pixels/300dpi, making it possible to be printed up to eight feet in length without any loss of detail.
Oakland Catherdral Interior - Super-HD Panorama (11,000 x 5500 pixels/300dpi). This Super-HD (spherical panorama) was projected onto circular mapping coordinates and was derived from an original, multi-row sequence consisting of 216 individual images in three rows of 72 each. Each position was photographed with three different exposures for high-dynamic range tone mapping and photo stitching. Three rows of 24 positions, each with three exposures at 35mm, ISO 50. The final image resolution of this digitally stitched photograph is 11,000 x 5500 pixels!
San Francisco Pre-Dawn Twilight (Super HD-Panorama 1:5). Viewed from the Oakland Hills, this (22,549 x 4510 pixel/300dpi) image is made up from 11 individual, high-res vertical exposures digitally stitched to form this one enormous file. Can be printed up to 96" in length without any loss of detail! Sunday, December 29, 2013 at 6:57 AM.
