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!

    • The US gets Assange this way. Not difficult to understand.
    • It has a slight liberal bias: all major news media lies between the political ideology of a typical Democrat and a typical Republican. No outlet is going to intentionally dissuade 30% of the market, it's just bad business. With regards to Trump though, he has made an enemy of the press. It has little to do with his political affiliation and everything to do with his confrontational attitude. See this "come at me bro" of a statement from the Press Corps. Note they welcome Trump to sue them for the so called "fake news", probably because they are confident in the accuracy of their articles. Also realize that it is entirely possible for something to be accurate and biased: which is probably all you will see in Trump coverage from here until the end of his Presidency    
    • So we support intelligence depts now?
    • You mean fake Bruce Springsteen.  The real one is a librul and the fake one didn't want to urinate on the bed of the real one.   I'm sure Trump wanted them to play "Born in the USA" like all the other politicians that have no clue what that song is about but like the chorus.  
    • I'm trying to wrap my head around this one. Obama truly is a bigger POS than I thought. Good, God this is bizarro world. By commuting the sentence of this freak show, it's like burning down all the intelligence depts. Why do we have laws? 
    • So Obama is mad at the Russians for hacking and Wikileaks for publishing the hacks yet he just Pardoned Chelsea Bradley Manning who stole secrets and gave them to Wikileaks   This is a real WTF moment.
    • You failed to post the very next part of that very article:     You never patted Obama on the back for any of that oddly enough.    http://www.reuters.com/article/cbusiness-us-gm-tech-center-renovation-idCAKBN0NZ19920150514   So either congratulate both or congratulate neither.
    • Because you are banking on not having to pay it back in your lifetime and are perfectly fine with passing that debt down to future generations which allows you to live a better lifestyle at their expense.  Some of us don't think it'e ethical to pass debt onto generations who will have no say in the process.
