The Shard building by the river Thames was completed this year (2013) and has two viewing platforms. One is totally enclosed, and the other is open to the elements but has tall glass panels all round. It's therefore necessary to take all the shots through glass, with the inevitable (very) intrusive reflections. Many shots were taken with the hand held camera and the best bits of each were selected for merging in the stitching process. As a result, it was an extremely challenging task to produce what fortunately turned out to be a reasonable result.
Camera: Canon 5DII
Lens: Canon 8-15mm fisheye @ 15mm
Hand held.
