A stream in a jungle - a 180 degree vertical panorama (vertorama)

A stream in a jungle - a 180 degree vertical panorama (vertorama)
I made this image in Western Ghats near Adithya's home during last August. This is a stitched 180 degrees 3D view of the jungle. I stitched about 100 files together to get this view. This is an interesting challenge which needs lots of dedication, meticulous planning and lots of CPU power and patience to stitch at the end. The final size of file is about 20GB which can printed very large. You may enjoy the larger higher quality version here.

Absolutely incredible!, Ganesh. Words will not be enough to compliment your passion, efforts n the result! Also love the layer of wetness, all over.

Another excellent work, Ganesh. Only thing is we can't enjoy the true potential of this image. May be you can think of buying/renting 3-4 high resolution projectors(considering the cost of printing each image) and project the image and enjoy yourself and please invite us as well. May not be equivalent to printing but this is how it can come close to the real potential. I'm sure you'll be making many more such images in future.

Best Regards

Never seen something like this before. Fantastic!
A beautiful place captured skilled, and with an idea that makes a stunning feeling.

Although you say that its a 180 degree vertorama, it gives a me a 360 degree feel as I feel like, I can enter the image from any angle! I am very curious to learn and understand how you visualized the the final results on the filed. Did you know if the composition would work? If so how? A phenomenal visual treat is all I can say about this image!

thank you,
Adithya Uligere

A technical and artistic feat for sure. Very enveloping.
What would your thoughts be on a crop till the base of the trees on top and leaving out the water?

Art is about what is inside rather than what is outside

Mindblowing image .Great idea & execution. I also liked Rajkumar`s suggestion of crop.

Prashanth, thanks. I will also need to buy a place to project it too :)

Adithya, I was working on a project sponsored by Bangalore International Airport. They wanted a huge 60ft x 20ft image of a jungle. I made about 15+ huge vertical panoramas like this one. Last week the new grand terminal was inaugurated by prime minister. If you happen to depart through this terminal you will see another image (bamboo forest) of mine in the vestibule. The glass laminated film is 60ft by 20ft in size. You may keep a watch if you happen to depart through this new terminal.

Raj, I think that would be another composition focusing more on the curvature of the canopy I guess.

Happy to see this image Ganesh. Feels very natural and fresh. I agree with others on the limitations of viewing this on a monitor. Going forward, VR/AR headset may help to experience these images better. TFS

I am fortunate to be able to stand next to you and learn so much about this kind of photography.
This place was quite adventurous too :)

Masterpiece from the master! Can only sit back and enjoy. Hope this also gets printed large and we will be able to witness to fullest.
