This looks a lot better much bigger of course, but I don't usually go wider than 800 pixels for this site. In this case I've printed the 1024 size. Sorry if you have to scroll, but I suspect that most people these days work at that resolution anyway. If you like, there's an even larger version here.

When I had the idea in my head, it was going to come out much neater, with all the lines, edges and angles matching much better, and not quite as much messy overlapping, but it didn't work out that way, obviously. For one thing, getting the perspective to match all the way round on a 360 degree panorama at close quarters just requires far too much work in post as well as in preparation, and at the end of the day, I don't really want that.

I realised in putting it together that I vastly preferred this really choppy messy look, so tried to encourage it while still keeping as many shots as I could in as much of their entirety as possible. I'm now planning a few more at different locations, and have a plan on how to display them too. It's good to have a new project to think about! I've been getting a bit slack lately. :)
