Photographer's Note

About the photo:

This is another experimental "radical stitch". I am not a great adept of this kind of manipulation, but am curious about what you find about it. I hadn't in mind anything like this when I did the 4 horizontal shots (2 for the lower part and another 2 for the upper part) that compose this image. I was aware that it would be hard to get something good, but, as in other occasions in this trip, I decided to get material to experiment with stitching shots with these kind of very inappropriate PoV and angle of coverage of the lens, namely because I was hoping that the great overlap of the shots would somehow compensate for the great perspective distortion.

The software used to produce the stitch was Hugin. In this image, I used the type of projection that usually produces the most natural results, rectilinear. I posted an image produced with equirectangular projection [WS#1] and another one produced with fisheye projection [WS#2]. WS#3 shows the 4 shots used in the stitch.

About the place:

As far as I could understand, this square, Plaza de la Reina, is the focal point of the oldest part of Valencia. It's a lively place with a nice garden in the middle, lots of outdoor cafes, and the cathedral in the North side. The tower on the right is from the cathedral. My post of the main door was shot slightly to the right of the right border.
