Wielka Parada Smoków ('Great Dragons' Parade'), is organized yearly by Groteska Theatre in Kraków. Giant dragons of various shapes and colors (the biggest of 20 m of length) are flying above Main Market Square. Groteska Theatre organizes this event since 11 years. See also this video .


The panorama was taken with Peleng MC f 3.5/8 mm lens (set at f 8, ~ 1 m) on Canon EOS 20D camera, (set at: 1/500 s), ISO 200).

The panorama was stitched with 4 images with no tripod, using Professor’s Helmut Dersch Panorama Tools (PTGui 4.1 graphical interface). I used 16 bit source images. Autopano and Enblend, as well as Gimp's ability to create Text Circle Logo were all of great help. Equi-rectangular image was created with registered version 1.6.2 of Pano2QTVR pro.
