The joy of shooting Gigapixel Imagery is going back through the files and finding little landscape images that perform well outside the much larger pano.  

Here’s a  link to the GigaPan version.  It still has stitching errors where the mountain’s meet the sky.  Due to the lack of motivation to make this one exact.  The main glacier below is stitched well, but from an artistic perspective this pano won’t do well as a print.   Next year I’ll get a wider field of view.  The inconsistent sun and rain cut this pano short.  So I focused purely on a scientific capture.

I’ve also added videos to my two accounts below, the vimeo has more content than the youtube.  Down the road I plan to feed both simultaneously.

400

I got a 400mm in the mail from xRez studios to use for the the CIGP. I ended up setting up a little indoor HDR shot with it.

Just for fun I used the Eddie Bauer LED work lights for highlights.

We’ll see how the images turned out later.

My prayers go out to any who were impacted by the bombs in Boston. It’s sad to think an event that represents human endurance could become a target for this kind of human failure.
