2011 Deck – Week 33

I had mentioned to someone that it has been a while since I tried a Panorama, or a panoramic image, so when I was with a few other photographers on a visit to the Stabroek Clock Tower, I decided to try one (or two).

Before I go farther, I thought I’d share a bit of information that I have.  I was once told (someone can help verify this) a few facts about the Stabroek Market building; the name comes from the area in which it is located, Stabroek, which is a Dutch name in origin, it was commissioned and erected by the British when they ruled Guyana (then British Guiana), and was bought or sourced from an American company out of the United States.

OK, back to the point of this post, the photo.  I took a sequence of photos starting from the North (my left) and panning right, this Panorama is comprised of seventeen (17) images, each taken in portrait orientation.

I forgot to do any correction for lens distortion prior to combining the images, so there is some chromatic aberration when viewed actual size.  I used Photoshop to combine the images, and minor processing in Lightroom.
