Momella lakes, Tanzania - mega panorama When you&#039;re looking at this photo from the JungleDragon photo page, you may wonder what is so mega about this photo. Well, the original of this photo is a whopping 30,000 pixels wide. Viewing and experiencing it properly requires some instructions:<br />
<br />
1. Make sure you are a JungleDragon member, and be signed in<br />
2. Open this photo fullscreen by clicking on it<br />
3. Click the &quot;HD&quot; button in the top and wait for the original to load, it may take a while<br />
4. Use your mouse wheel to zoom<br />
<br />
Zooming is actually cut off at 5 x magnification, the image has far more detail than what you see even at the maximum zoom level. I will soon fix this in the new JungleDragon version. Note that your browser may significantly slow down or even crash when the original is loaded, depending on your machine. <br />
<br />
Anyway, this is a 15-image (each 36 MP) panorama of Momella Lakes, Tanzania. Each of the three lakes are visible. In the original you can zoom in as far as to see the thousands of flamingos gathering at the edges of the lakes. Africa,Arusha,Arusha National Park,Tanzania Click/tap to enlarge

  1. Wow Ferdy that is quite incredible, what a magnificent view. That must have taken some work, stitching that lot together, damned good job though! Posted 9 years ago
    1. Thanks Claire. The stitching was actually done fully automatically by Photoshop. The only effort on my side was waiting :) Posted 9 years ago
      1. Oh don't you just love photoshop!
        You are probably too young to remember having to use rolls of film, hoping for the best and paying vast amounts of money to have them processed. If you wanted a panorama, you used glue!
        I remember a 6 week trip to Africa during these times and thinking I was being excessive by taking 950 photos. Nowadays I will do more than that in a day! Ah, progress..love it

        1. Hehe...true, I never did serious photography using film, but did do snapshots on small cams and recognize the limitations and wait times.

          Progress indeed is incredible. The only downside I can think of is that sometimes it is too easy. Without limitations some people (like me) do not think about how to properly compose a scene.
