Metrodome Pano

17 posts in this topic

Shoot my first couple of college baseball games today at the Metrodome. Looked for a slightly different shot, so this is what I came up with. Had to rest the camera on the photo well rail so I didn't get as much of the roof as I wanted but this is a 180 degree view down the first base line. Here is a link to a larger view.

Sweet Shot. Is that a a couple of shots together, or just a realy realy wide angle?

Paul, 4 shots stitched together to form a 180 degree look. The rail on the right and left are actually the same rail that come together. Oh I should add Paul this was done in CS4, the photomerge in CS4 is unbelievable! It blows CS2 out of the water in merging ability.

That's cool Dan!

If you took the shots from a portrait orientation and took a few more, would it give you the roof line you wanted? Just a thought.

I like panos like this I took a couple on a cruise this winter of a sunset with several oil tankers lined up to get into Venezuela.

Nice work.

Nice shot Dan. Ahhhhhhhh, baseball season is starting, I feel warmer already.

Always a good crowd on hand for those Metrodome college games. My son played there a few times, you can always get a real good seat.

That really cool Dan. Looking at the larger image it looks as if there are multiples of the same player. Is that 2 number 31's in the right side of the image?

Mike I do believe you are correct! I guess the players moved while I was taking the shots. If you look down the third base side toward the bullpen it looks as if there are two each of the players there as well, and possibly the second baseman is duplicated! I just stitched it together without doing much else to it, if I was going to print it I think some cloning would be appropriate!

That's funny. I can see how that could happen very easily. I think you've done enough "cloning" Dan. laugh Maybe you can can wink unclone them.

Upon further inspection the only player cloned is "31". Whew, I feel better about not adding to the cloning culture!

    • Keep an eye on those trees. They tend to jump in the way when your not looking.    won't be the same without ya. 
    • Truth be told it was the outstate money that originally built the metro into what it is. Without that funding St Paul would be nothing more than St Peter is today. 
    • Can't argue with the last part
    • I wonder if a person gets an extended warranty if that will help?  I have a 2011 with 5.3 silverado and all is good today so I'm thinking og looking into that.
    • My last kayak adventure was less than stellar wound up in the drink. And it was a cold drink at that. A very memorable paddle up to that point. It was the first time I had ever been on the water with snow on everything. It was awesome.    Alas, my 'yaks are all put up for the season now. Waiting for next years adventures to begin. 
    • I am toying with the idea of doing a little calling this weekend. The moon is nice and dark, so the first and last few minutes  of daylight might make something happen. It all depends on what I stumble into for sign. The majority of the deer hunters have been done for a while, so the free meals are going to be getting harder to come by. 
    • The fans I was talking about are 12 volt and only 1" deep. Putting them under the heater might not do the job because the heat from heater rises. If you have room in the lower cabinet on your heater you could mount one fan inside and blow the heat out the grill on the front of the heater.
    • I thought last night's game was surprisingly entertaining considering how low scoring it was for most of it. Not sure if people outside of MN and TX would agree. Rudolph dropping that ball in the end zone was devastating - IMO it was a bigger play than the final one. As much as I hate to see us continue to lose, I honestly have never seen a team lose so many starters at key positions and still be competitive. Says a lot about our coaching, depth, and players buying in.   Will be interesting to see what we can do with our OL without having a 1st rd pick this off season. As others have said, it wouldn't be a bad strategy to use every draft pick we have on the linemen.      
    • Yes. Unlike you I have a job and a life.   I'll just say that whatever it's about you are right because that's the only thing I could ever say that you would possibly agree with me on. I won't get in the way of your libertarian fantasies.
