Leica D-Lux 3


To the north of McGown is the Downtown Transit Center station and to the south is Ensemble/HCC station.

As this neighboorhood does not have strong appeal to me, I'm not sure why anyone would use this station except to walk across the street and buy a Cadillac automobile.

This panorama is comprised of 9 photographs, which were taken with a Leica D-Lux 3 camera and was stitched using the GigaPan Stitcher software.

Note: This panorama can be seen in Google Earth as a curved panorama on a curved surface by clicking the link, View in Google Earth (assuming that you have Google Earth installed on your computer).

Additional information can be found when clicking Stitcher Notes.

    As you know, quality and quanity of light can make or break a GigaPan. Recently, I have been looking for difficult lighting situations and can be seen here: www.gigapan.org/searchGigapansList. php?ids=37437,37419,37397,37183,37161,36807,36672, 36659 Your GigaPans are extraordinary.
