Behind the scene : how this panorama was madeSeveral passes of Belki and Snoopy were recorded in the scene, in each location. Auto Exposure Bracketing captured a wide range of light conditions as deep clouds revealed bright sun. Bracketeer allowed enfusing of the multiple exposures, while CS3 layers manipulations allowed selective additions of Belki and Snoopy figures into each set of exposures. The complete set of 6 around in addition to zenith and nadir imaages were then stitched together in PTGui Pro 8. Minor retouching followed in CS3 to complete the final image.
Incident location sounds from various locations were mixed and a snipet of music from Le Chateau de Ma Mere (instrumental jazz rendition) by Janet Seidel - The Way You Wear Your Hat, was overlayed to complete a colorful feeling for the image.
