That this stitched with minimal errors is pretty incredible ... the clue can be found in the Stitcher Notes.
We go to Versailles and arrive early, but not early enough because the line to gain entry to the Palace is pretty long ... so much so that we bear to the left and find an entry (even though we had a pass, there was no guard in sight) to the garden.
Thinking that we can go back when the Palace line would be shorter, we spend several hours having a great time ... walking all over taking lots and lots of photos, and finally ending up in the area of the Hamlet, Marie Antoinette's get-a-way place.
On the verge of exhaustion, I continue to take photos for stitching later. We leave the Hamlet, catch the little Versailles "train" (the one I took a iPhone video of and U/L to YouTube: www.youtube.com/watch?v=5Syj4KHWC5I ) that takes us back to the Palace where I discover that the line has increased from several hundred feet to at least a mile. Sadly (we wanted to see the Hall of Mirrors), we then return to Paris, and the following Saturday return to Houston.
Because of lots of things going on, days pass before I get to stitch any photos from the Hamlet episode. As I am going though my photos, I know that my 360-degree panos require 26-28 photos, and it's late at night and as I am going through the list, I see 30 photos all taken within 2 minutes of each other, so since it is late, I grab the photos and toss the photos into the Stitcher, not expecting anything great, but useable, and after a few minutes, the image comes up on the screen and I am blown away with what I see.
Using my 17-50mm f/2.8, I must have quickly taken sets of photos at two different focal lengths, and different locations to achieve what you see in this GigaPan. It was not done intentionally ... if the time difference between the end of set one and beginning of set two was 2 minute, this panorama would never have been see as it is.
