In the family garden, here are our hands: maternal grandmother, mother, father and the boys (twin 5-year-olds and a 3-year-old). The geographical location is the heart anywhere on earth and beyond. Or are we butterflies dreaming that we are a human family?
Reference photos used for "Our Hands" panorama, showing how they measure up.

Camera: Canon 300D (Digital Rebel) digital SLR, 50mm lens at various exposures. Software: Photoshop CS and Pano2VR 2.3.4.
Behind the scene : about making this panorama
Everything about this panorama is off-the-cuff and on-the-fly, that is unplanned, relatively measured and casually matched. I caught the hands at different times when each was available and willing to be photographed. Thus each had different and unique exposure, lighting, setting and mood. I tried to match them in Photoshop and color them relatively from memory.

Scale was a major problem. The father had the largest hand but no photo showed me how the rest related to that size. I had to take reference photos of side by side father/young son, father/twin son, mother/father, grandmother/mother, and twin/twin. These could have been, that is, should have been much more accurate and controlled for consistency. The snapshots provided visual cues for rough estimates of the size of each hand relative to the others.

See wholeo.net for a few photos related to this project.
