What was my best panorama in the past year? Every year that's a difficult question that I have to answer for the "Best Of" event at the WWP at the end of the year. As I'm still looking for motifs whose equirectangulars can serve as a interesting base image for reprojecting the panoramic image I selected an image which I hadn't published until now and which serves this purpose.
The shooting was done with a monopod. On top of that I used a custom-made bracket. The bracket allows me to mount the lens in a fashion so I can 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 0.7 f-stops apart. The best exposed set was chosen before stitching.
