Sanctuary has a double meaning for me: For me it is a place of personal freedom and quietness, but also a place of protected nature. For over 30 years I have been one of these "morning joggers". Summer and winter, sun or rain, no weather will stop me. I meet with a friend at 5:25 in the morning. You have to know, that from October to end March it is dark at that time.

The place I chose for my panoramic picture we pass every morning. It is called "The Jewish temple" because of it´s form. In the late 1800s the house was given as a gift to the people of Bremen as an observation-tower. At that time the park must have been wonderfully wild with nature. Today it is a beautifully arranged park for giving give people room for recreation. The tower has been restored this year by the rotary club Bremen.

Now you can see why I chose this site in the darkness of night. I had problems because the darkness was almost total. A bit of moonlight and stars. To reduce noise, I used the camera´s internal noise reduction system and took the pictures in NEF format. Later I changed the metering to +1 and after stitching the pictures I used a soft filter to reduce the noise of the sky.

Equipment

I used the Nikon D100 with Sigma 8mm fishey. With regard to the long exposure time I had to use a tripod, manfrotto 344BR with No 438 levelling plate and the No 469RC2 ball-head. The pictures were taken in portrait position with the panosaurus head.

To reduce noise, I used the camera´s internal noise reduction system and took the pictures in NEF format. Later I changed the metering to +1.

I stitched with ptgui 3.7beta1 / autopano 1.03 / enblend.

After stitching the pictures I used a soft filter to reduce the noise of the sky. After that action I applied a soft resharpening with unsharp mask. Erik Krauses tool helped to edit the cube-faces and ptgui re-stitched the cube-faces to a flat panorama.

With PanoCube+ the *.move files where created.
