This panorama shows an old and rusty machine. In better times it surely was a trusty machine but now it's only rusty...
The shooting was done with a monopod extented to mid level of the housing of the crane. The lens was mounted with a custom-made bracket, which allows me to mount the lens to 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 2 f-stops apart. The best exposed set was chosen before stitching.
