    This would have been a great GigaPan photo, if it wasn't spoilt by so many weird added parts. Different angles and intensities of shadow can easily be explained by layers taken at different times of day (or different days entirely). However, you cannot say that the Monarch butterfly is real and was ever there. For a start the shadow is ridiculously wrong, but more than that - you can zoom in to it's wings enough to see the watermark. Last time I checked Monarch butterflies don't have naturally-occuring watermarks on their wings. Same can be said about the 'Jean Luc Picard' person (snapshot 'Works for Captain James T. Kirk) - that has obviously been photoshopped in. For one it looks hand-drawn, and secondly even if it were a real person - from that distance there is no way they would have known you were taking a picture - not just because of the distance, but the fact the camera was pointed away from them so they wouldn't know the lens was wide enough to pick them out. Should have left the photo in it's original state, and not messed with it.

    While the overall photo is great, I must say there is some photoshopping going on here, for instance the 'girl with the blue binder' has been added after the fact. (shadow intensity is wrong, shadows missing across her clothing, feet not quite touching the ground, bluring around her outline, etc..) Nothing wrong with being creative as long as it is mentioned up front.

    the butterfly snapshot is rather cheesy. the shadow of cars and that of light poles and pedestrians are all different directions. I wont even mention the butterflies shadow... good job though... but cheesy.

    Dear Eric B. I really like what you've done here. I am trying to do something similar and would love your advice. Can you write me via will@liquidadvertising.com ? Thanks, Will A.

    Don't need to Photoshop the large file. You add Waldo, butterfly, whatever to the individual shots before they are stitched.

    Why so much Photoshopping?? Waldo is funny, but once you realize it's Photoshopped, it's not as cool. The pano is cool enough on its own without adding so many things that are clearly fake.

    This image was taken repeatedly over about a 30-day period with different lighting conditions and different cameras that were then combined. This resulted in some image elements looking less natural then others. However, almost all events happened more or less as shown at some time during the month.

    It would have been nicer if those things to explore where real. Many of those people you have added to the pictures are so obvious that they have been cut out of other pictures. Next time try to edit them better. Overall this is a great gigapixl photo.

    This is one of best exploration gigapan's I've seen. Looks like multiple gigas with many added elements. I'd love to know how many days of post work the author put into it.

    This is a great introduction to gigapan--except that it's so much fun, I can't tear myself away to look at other photos (or go back to work)! Fun & beautiful!
