As I said yesterday, I was curious about how a gigapixel pano would look like. So just for fun (and practice), I tried to take one from the balcony of my apartment. I almost got it. The result was around 800Mpix. Funny how quickly one learns about file format limits when one tries to save something like this. jpg can’t be over 30 000 pixels wide (ok, it can, but Photoshop will not open it), tif can’t be over 2gb in file size and so on :)
Yesterday I went out again to shoot, as the snow was falling. And that was exactly what I wanted, a photo with the castle with falling snow. But for the second time this week, as I got to the location I wanted, the snowing stopped. So I ended up with few blue hour shots, and will have to try again next time.
