Description

Many people know the Theatre Royal in Bath. Not many people know that there is an Old Theatre Royal too. It was in an area of town that became unfashionable and after the (new) Theatre Royal was built the old one closed and eventually became a Catholic church in 1805 (ish). Later the building was sold to the Freemasons and as you can see it is now a masonic temple.

My thanks to the Bath Freemasons for allowing me to take a shot of this amazing space. There are guided tours available where you can find out all about the buidling's history which I thoroughly recommend. See www.oldtheatreroyal.com Will open in a new tab or window/ for details.

This image is geocoded but there is a pretty cool VR view that I prefer here: www.kilgore.org.uk/ttt Will open in a new tab or window/

    Hi K, We seem to be on similar paths. I 'did' the masonic temple and museum in Bath earlier this week, but with 10.5mm on a full frame so no gigapan but possibly more accurate colour? www.john-law.org.uk/standard/mason s/index.html Will open in
a new tab or windowI had to lighten up the carpet too. JL

    Again, I won the prize ... there are 1898 full square tiles on the floor including the tiles underneath the two devices on the floor.. White matrix is 27*34 and black is 28x35. Just curious? is this prize a special hat or a gown or a certificate or maybe even an expense paid trip to the capitol of British GigaPan experiences? Note: this geocode really looks great, but I had to turn off street view before I was able to count ... there were almost as many street view icons as tiles :)

    The image is now geocoded so you can start counting. If you get the answer right to within 1% then your prize will be the position of Chief Count The Squares Judge and Competition Arbiter :-)

    How many squares are there on the floor? Maybe I could count them if this extraordinary GigaPan was geocoded :)

    Yes, the Pro Beta. Shot with kit lens at 18mm (that's 24mm to you 'cos of the crop on the 7D), 9 x 6 plus a few nadir shots. VR done with KRPano. And you know where I live :-)

    Hi Kilgore Was this taken with the epicpro? Also wqas the vr made from the gigapan or with a wideangle lens? I invested in the Sigma 8mm and need a 5DMkii now?? Must meet up again KR

    Cheers Apapane. You can see the sphere by following the VR link, but I will geocode the image simply so people can see where this place is.

    Kudos, Kilgore. Nice detail and clarity. Looks like the 7D was the Key. You should regain the sphere, too, when you geocode the gigapan in Google Earth.

    Thanks David. It is certainly my best gigapan yet in terms of sharpness. I had to have three attempts at it to get it right and there were many hours of frustration trying to get the stitch right. A big problem was the wide variation in levels of light. I think there were seven steps in the process of getting the final stitch to what you see here, and it still isn't right - the white in the carpet should be whiter. But all in all I consider makes buying the 7D - which essentially consumed all my savings - worthwhile. After all the hours I have spent looking at this image, it still gives me pleasure to see the sharp details - especially in the VR view.

    Kilgore, anastonishing amount of detail in this GigaPan and the exposure is right-on too. Congratulations.
