Bagan Panorama

I did not do nearly as much of this sort of thing as I had hoped to. I had grand plans about producing some of the highest resolution images of Burma in existence. Well, the blistering pace of our trip made it impossible to stand in one spot long enough to create any Gigapan’s at all. I did, however, manage to shoot some hand held panoramas with my D3. I’ve begun stitching the panos together with AutoPano Pro, and am getting some pretty good results.

This first panorama was taken from the top of Shwesandaw – one of the few temples that tourists are still allowed to climb on.

I’m fairly pleased with the results, although I really want to return to this spot some day and do the shot over when there’s an ox cart on the dirt road near the center of the image. That would really make it, don’t you think? By the way, if you’d like to see the original stitched panorama, download the 12,795 pixel wide version. (15 megabytes)
