I've chosen this panorama because I really like the light and it reminds me of a very nice trip to Venice. And I was also able to do a nice reprojection of the image.

Making Of

The shooting was done with a 3.15 meter (appx. 10.33 ft) pole to reach a more elevated viewpoint over the bridge. The lens was mounted with a custom-made bracket. It enables me to turn around the no-parallax point of the lens.

As the lens is a fisheye lens, four pictures easily cover 360°. To be sure I took three exposures at each direction. The exposures were 2 f-stops apart. The best exposed set was chosen before stitching. Zenith and nadir were retouched by hand in Photoshop.
