(This didn't seem to make it to the list the first time so I'm reposting.
It's another of my 360 images for those of you who enjoy them)

Unlurking for a moment...

Now things have calmed down (see today's Daily Mail for the reason...)
a bit I finally got a chance to put together a 360 from July. I shot it
at Ed Mirvish's annual birthday party here in Toronto. Normally this is
a lot of fun but (see the portfolios from the previous 2 years on my
site) but it felt quite threatening this year and this was certainly
reflected in what I shot.

Here's the first pic I've put together from it.

1000 pixel version 
2000 pixel version 
4000 pixel version 

If you can stomach the download, the 4000 pixel version is the coolest,
but even this doesn't capture the level of detail in the 12000 pixel
wide original.

This was comped together from a selection of 14 images out of a total
of about 30 I shot in this location.

The more I do these the more I am struck with how similar the process
of putting them together is to film editing, especially in the sense of
constructing meaning through juxtaposition, and in the delicate
house-of-cards nature of making it all fit together, which often means
you have to sacrifice the best individual shots for the sake of the

As usual the pano wraps around at both ends and you are welcome to load
it up into photoshop and use the filter>other>offset command to
experiment with alternative framings.
