The ruins of the old church at Heptonstall, near Hebden Bridge, on a warm sping evening.
There’s a sense of things coming full circle with this photo. I first shot this scene in April 2007 with my first generation of panoramic kit, and was pleased with the results at the time. I’ve since been using the second generation kit for almost two years; but have recently upgraded my kit and updated my workflow radically. This third generation setup seems like the pinnacle of lightweight yet extreme quality panoramic photography: this is the first full spherical I’ve shot with it, and I love the amazing detail, wide tonal range and that lens flare … really nice!
Shot with Canon EOS50D, Sigma 10mm f2.8, Nodal Ninja w/R-D8 rotator, stitched with PTGui 8.1.
