Realizing that this will be my 3rd panorama involving Disney I was a bit reluctant to submit it for my best of 2006. I looked at a dozen of so I shot this year but this one is my favorite. It is a shot in a attraction called Innovations and resides in a revolving building that use to be called The Carousel of Progress. The center of the attraction is a large tree that is made of computer circuit boards. The activates in the attraction include a real android robot that can walk up stairs and kick a soccer ball, riding a Segway and playing lots of various computer games. If you ever visit Disneyland this is a great place to go during hot summer days to get out of the heat for a little while. It is also a fun place.
I hope you like this shot as much as I do. Thanks for looking.
This was shot with a Tamron 11-18 lens on a Canon 20D. 3 rows of 8 shots on a Bogen SPH303 head. 2 Exposures fro each shot, then blended for dynamic range. Processed with Photoshop, PTGui & PANO2QTVR.
At the time Disneyland is tripod friendly as long as you are careful where you setup. I always have at least 1 security person check on me and make sure I am taking photos for personal use. They will often stay and chat for a while because a panorama rig is not something that is very common.
