    I spent a while planning this out and it seems to be working. Critiques welcome!!

    Basically 1 Nikon camera tethered to a computer, updating a scene of downtown houston every 15 minutes all day, every day.

    Here's the link;

    -----------------------------------
    Problems I am experiencing;
    I am shooting through a thick glass, so there is a bit of ghosting in specific areas.

    The camera auto settings are causing white balance issues and bleaching / too much darkening over the course of a day.

    due to my batch processing, i have to delete the photo before reposting the new one. a 2 second delay between picture posts can be noticed if you hit refresh at the right time.


    -----------------------------------
    Benefits of this format;
    In my opinion it seems to be better than normal webcam updates. With unlimited bandwidth you can technically post a 20 megapixel image of ____ at intervals on the fly.

    very interesting! How did you come up with the idea?

    Your other shots on your website are great as well!

    Great shots, are you in the tall building right next to the MFA? Or it now looks like you are in the Mosaics
