Sony Alpha 100


This short range giga panorama was shot in 9 rows and 15 columns. Due to short distances (<5 mtrs.) of the objects and a 105 mm lens, the depth of field is a disadvantage. This was "corrected" by taking multiple shots (between 4 and 20) for each picture, and further processed in Helicon Focus to create extended depth of field. In total over 1500 shots were taken over a period of 3 hours. This explains the different lighting conditions.
The halo's and twisted shapes were caused by helicon, because the objects moved quite a lot in the wind. Maybe with different settings, or less shots the effect can be reduced.
