La caverne aux livres

Newer Older

Equirectangular panorama built from 57 pictures (EXIF data from the first one).
See also its stereographic projection, or two oblique mercator projections here and here.

La caverne aux livres is a secondhand bookshop in Auvers-sur-Oise (30km to the North of Paris). The entrance of the bookshop is an ancient railway hangar, but from there you'll quickly find yourself in an old postal train whose cars have been reconverted into giant bookshelves.

Interactive view.

    That's COOL! And a lot of work stitching I think..:-)

    Yeah, looks great!
    I also would like to know how you stitch the images ...

    @Pat: Stitching was easy, because I used a panoramic head (I would never have attempted this handheld!). Usually, what's hard for me is to color correct all the pictures (with PTblender) because I can't lock exposures on this point-and-shoot camera. In this case, however, the exposures turned out more or less identical so I skipped the long color correction step. Overall, this is one of the easiest panorama I have built so far!

    @Cromo, DF: the first paragraphs of the description of my Wee planets has pointers to the tools I use.

    I think PTGui does automatic color correction.

    This makes a great "skydome" for my beryl window manager, when stretched to 2048x2048 (the maximum texture my card can handle) :)

    This is amazing. Looking at it in the original size is best. At full size the woman looks ghostly. The focus throughout is really great. Congrats and thanks for such an interesting perspective.
