As I went for a visit to my brother Markus
at this WWP weekend, I had to find a location near Munich. As we dicussed possible locations we remembered some very colorful subway stations of the Munich U-Bahn
. We decided to take some pictures at the station Candidplatz
and at the station Westfriedhof
which are both extremely colorful stations. So you find a panorama of the U-Bahn station Candidplatz in this entry and a panorama of the U-Bahn station Westfriedhof at my brothers entry
The shooting was done with a 3.15 meter (appx. 10.33 ft) pole
to reach a more elevated viewpoint above the platform. The pole was extended to appx. 2.5 meter (appx. 8.20 ft). The lens was mounted with a custom made bracket, which allows 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°. Due to the lighting conditions I took three exposures at each direction. The exposures were 0.7 f-stops apart. The best exposed set was chosen before stitching.
Nadir and zenith were retouched manually.
