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!

    •   My Father-in-law (a master plumber) always used to say you only need to know 3 things to be a plumber:          sh*t doesn't run uphill         payday is on Friday         the boss is an ahole      
    • I've been getting them at Costco,  I've checked slyvee and sams but never see them.  Although one of the butcher's at slyvee says he can get them which might not be a bad idea since you can have some fat cut off before you pay per #. I picked one up a couple of weeks ago and it was about 2.80 a #, which isn't too bad yet considering bacon in the store can run quite a bit more than that.  You making bacon or doing pork belly burnt ends moon lake?
    • Excellent summer fishing.  Charters catching strong numbers.  Jig/minnow or jig/leech and bouncers with spinners with crawlers or minnows still producing walleyes. When the wind is right for pulling spinners, they have been lights out.  Walleyes being caught in varying depths, 7-31' of water.  Some shallow shorelines still producing. Pike mixed in all over the lake.    Walleyes in the Rainy River with a better morning/evening bite.  Trolling cranks or pulling spinners a good idea to cover more water. Smallmouth bass are out and about along shorelines and feeder streams. Sturgeon fishing opens again Saturday, July 1st.     Up at the NW Angle, water temps are in the low to mid 60’s. Wind blown shorelines are giving up walleyes via leeches or crankbaits along the weed line. Crawlers on a  gold and/or orange spinner are producing fish out of the mud between 22 - 26 feet. On the Canadian side, bottom bouncers and spinners have been filling the livewells outside of monument bay between 24-28 feet.  Jigging near Skeet and Kennedy Islands have produced nice sized walleye and numerous perch. Great smallmouth action in Tranquil channel and the mouth of Johnston passage. Muskie fishing picking up with high 40” class fish being caught with a few 50's from shallow bottom bays or adjacent to them.
    • Busy time of year out there so if u get canceled it is hard to rebook especially with the smaller operations. Bummer though as it can be a lot of fun if they are biting. 
    • I understand that you never really know when the Warriors are going to fall off or if they even will.  Hopefully the Wolves can make the playoffs and gain some experience, maybe teach the rest of the team how to play defense, so that in a few years we are knocking on the door and can lure in a top free agent to put us over the edge.  Its just an awful tough time to be a good team right now with the Warriors so clearly heads and shoulders above everyone else.
    • I couldn't have said it better myself pikestabber!  We have to go out there and do what we can now and not try to set up for "when the warriors are old" cuz the way the NBA is going who knows what players may join forces to set up the next "Warriors" squad.  Heck maybe the Wolves will be that next team !!  I just really love the addition of Butler and from the sounds of it we are not done yet and I am excited to see what will happen in free agency and if we could really land the likes of Kyle Lowry one of the other PG's that are hitting the FA market.  Nice to see the Wolves making moves!!
    • I would ask Getanet where to get some good ones!   Pork Belly Stinks Started by Getanet, May 1
    • So that means you ALMOST caught a fish!!   Real bummer!
