About this Image:

The 12 original images for this panorama were taken by the author using a tripod-mounted Nikon Coolpix 800 digital camera, at 35mm focal length, horizontal orientation. The author adjusted the colors with Adobe PhotoShop (r) , and stitched, blended, and rendered images into the panorama shown here using MGI Photovista (r) software. Severed or broken images of automobiles, people, etc, are a function of the panorama stitching algorithms, and apart from their occurence at the edges of the original frames, these effects are entirely arbritrary. The author left them undisturbed in order to preserve the evidence of manipulation.
