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!

    • Watch your City Ordinances.  Some city's require a back-flow preventor, and it can be VERY expensive. I have both the battery backup, and the water driven sump pumps in my pit--all at different elevations, and feel very confident. When the water comes up, and the power goes out, the battery backup starts working.  After that the water driven sump pump will kick in.  The water driven pump will keep pumping until the power is restored and the main pump returns everything to normal. There is always water pressure in a power outage (from the tower).  Cities keep the tower full for fire protection
    • So proud of my 93 year old dad.  It's getting tougher and tougher just getting him out there, but he still knows what to do once there.    
    • I still gotta tag Moose! I'm going for a Tom only!!   (Personal thing) is ,,, I want to do it with my bow
    • Shaggy parasols are coming up in the shade garden again. Yum.  
    • VTX129 has a great point on nothing smaller than 9". I have a HB 998Ci HD unit. The bottom features that I can pick up are incredible- however I sometimes have a problem picking fish up on it. I have tried to keep my SI width narrower to help ID fish. Overall fantastic tool. The hard to soft transitions are easy to see as are rocks and so forth. On the HB units the larger screened ones come with the High Def transducer.  The smaller units come with a compact transducer. You can find some great prices on models that are being phased out - but they also will quit repairing those units sooner as well. Trade off's. Check out Universal Mania and some others online for pricing. Bass Boat central has a lot of info under Humminbird and Lawrance topics.   Good luck   Steve
    • CM I agree...and Chicago seems to find those diamonds in the rough...not sure how their AHL team is or if they have more of these "sleepers" coming up from somewhere but I bet they are right back in the finals within a 2-3 years with or without Q.   Another article that came in last night on Fletch/Wild http://nhl.nbcsports.com/2017/04/25/wild-exit-early-fletcher-stays-positive-a-familiar-refrain-in-minnesota/  You might have to Cut/Paste
    • Same have to give them a try once they come out.
    • Can't wait to test that Sprinker. 
    • lots coming thru for a couple days now.  had fun whistling with a couple yesturday. 
    • I wasn't able to catch it live and when I tried finding it after the fact it wouldn't play on my laptop for some reason. I do admire Bowman for being visibly ticked about their early exit, but I think that may get pushed a little too far. You tick off Q and he might just walk out the door. Bowman just fired one of his buddies and Q isn't too happy about it. We will see how that plays out. I think the Hawks are in a tougher position cap-wise than the Wild and have been for a few years. The difference is they had been getting no-name guys to emerge and contribute. They could be on a very slippery slope in Chi-town. We will see how that plays out.
