This panorama is a so called tower shot on the top level of Burg Eppstein. I also did another shot, before I entered the location. In the other version you can see the tower from outside the castle.

Making Of

The shooting was done handheld with a Walimex (Samyang) 7.5mm fish eye lens on a Sony QX1. Thirteen images around. The zenith and nadir were retouched by hand in post-processing. The nadir looks differnet in reality, but this way it was easier to retouch...

  • Camera: Sony ILCE-QX1
  • Lens: Samyang 7mm/3.5 UMC fisheye (lens hood shaved, MFT lens adapted for Sony E-mount)
  • Mounting: hand-held (tower shot from the topmost plattform)
  • Software: PTGui Pro, Photoshop CC, Pano2VR
  • 13 images around @ ISO 100
  • zenith and nadir retouched with Photoshop in post
