The Pope in my home town
Sascha Fromm, Photographer
Elleben, OT Riechheim | GERMANY | GERMANY | Posted: 6:35 PM on 09.29.11
->> The German Pope Benedict XVI. was guest for two days in my home town Erfurt, Germany. On the second day of his visit there was a holy mass at Domplatz square in front of the Erfurter Dom cathedral in the heart of this small but beautiful city. From this, maybe the greatest event in the history of this city, I wanted to try to create a very special and large image. The weather was perfect this saturday morning. The result is a truly big picture of 1,97 gigabyte. I used a Gigapan head with a Nikon D3 on a tripod. 429 individual photos taken here in 31 minutes. ISO 1000, 1/500 (because of the rickety photo tribune) at f/13 with a Nikkor 105mm AF Micro. Field of View: 225 degrees wide, 59.3 degrees high. Panorama size 692 megapixels (51272 x 13508). A good friend helped me to remove the ghost people in the photo.
