How it was done:
The photography was done one a summer evening at the canal. Two rows of 7 photos at three different exposures (focal length 15mmm, portrait) were needed for the panorama - the contrast between the bright sky and the shadow areas required <![CDATA[HDR]]> processing.
The resulting images have been edited, then stitched together, edited again, and then turned into a cylindrical panorama.
This interactive panorama exists in two different versions: One is using, if available, the Adobe Flash Player, the other uses HTML5. The Flash version allows viewing in screen mode, the HTML5 version works on almost all devices that don't have Flash (Apple mobile devices).
