GigapanMagazine.org Will open in a new tab or window Volume 3 Issue 5

I started to see where I was in much the same way I see a lot of other beautiful, flawed things, in that many of the same problems that condemned this place were exactly what made it that much more valuable an image demanding to be captured.

HDR, tonemapped in Photomatix. Completely unretouched otherwise except for very minor color correction and cropping (more for printing than anything else). Essentially my first perfect stitch; thankful I picked up the G11 for proper nodal point alignment, even if the Gigapan Pro comes out next month. Limited edition archival run of 10 roughly 30" x 90" prints.

...no, it wasn't an Insane Asylum (as the myth goes)-- just a nuclear missile site from the Cuban Missle Crisis era, decommissioned in 1979.

An additional image taken this day of the exterior can be found at gigapan.org/gigapans/47629/.
Additional views of HM-95, photographed a month later can be found at:
