    I finally had a go at processing this beast of an image! I don't think this is my final pass but I've got the base image sorted now so I thought I'd stick it up for all to see.

    It was BLOODY hot this day, 100 degrees! I had sweat dripping off me from just sitting still and the top of the D3 was too hot to touch - no thanks to a cloudless sky and the sun directly overhead!

    Flickr has done it's usual over sharpening trick, thanks Flickr!

    Anyway, here is the medium size:
    [​IMG]

    And here it is 1100 pixels wide. Impact is lost at these sizes...the original looks very nice with a ton of crown detail! Speaking of crowds, autopano pro did an AMAZING job of stitching this and working out when there were ghosts of people that should be removed. There are a couple of small errors in the foreground people but I can live with that.

    Oh and it's 6 vertical shots stitched :)

    How did you snap the shots fast enough to avoid movement in the crowd and on the field? Or did you crop this out of a much bigger image?

    There was a lot of movement of people between all the shots but thanks to autopano pro it was easy to get round it.

    I can usually spot some seams or slight variations in panos, NOT this one super tight @1200pxls! :thumbup:

    I'm glad no one, or camera was over cooked!

    Awesome shot but couldn't a nice wide angle lens produce the same effect? Also, how many shots did you take for this pic?

    A wide angle lens would have distortion that this one does not.
