Behind the scene : how this panorama was madeI didn't use too much energy this time to find some spectacular subject and simply shot the water wheel I can see all day on the way to our local supermarket.
But it was a challenge anyway. Not so much because there were rats running acros my feet or because I wanted to stand in the water. It was the dynamic range. More than 12 f-stops between the darkest shadows and the sunlit buildings outside.
I had to choose a relatively long exposure time in order too look into the shadows, hence the wheel and the water is pretty 'dynamic'. And it was my second attempt: I tried to shoot it for the 'Water' event too, but failed. You can see the previous result (after very much photoshop work) at http://pano.erik-krause.de/water/ (bottom pano).
