Tampa Daytime Gigapan

Tampa Daytime Gigapan

A little more than a year after my night time Tampa Gigapan, I present to you my new daytime Gigapan, 3.53 Gigapixels and shot this time on a Nikon D750. This Gigapan was taken from atop the new Skyhouse apartment tower in the Channelside district of Tampa. The raw photos were color corrected using an X-Rite ColorChecker Passport and Adobe DNG Camera profile in Adobe Lightroom, and exported to jpeg for stitching in Gigapan Stitch.

After learning from the mistakes of my previous post, I have a few new issues, this time glaringly obvious. The reflection seen in the photo is the pool atop Skyhouse, the top of the building has 8 foot glass panels going around the perimeter, allowing you to see out, but to shoot through provides to be a difficulty. If I reshoot this Gigapan, I will bring a black sheet to go between the glass and Gigapan set up to eliminate the glare, a taller tripod is not feasible, and would probably be disliked by the Skyhouse staff.
