The medieval city of Zutphen from the River IJssel

One of the things that I do enjoy shooting with my DSLR, and frankly, it is the only thing I do use my DSLR for lately, is the creation of 360° panoramas. I do publish my panoramas at, please follow the link to see more of my work.

The above panorama is of the city of Zutphen, historically an important medieval city but currently a small town of little consequence which does actually contribute enormously to the quality of life there. Click-through on the image to actually navigate around in it. In this particular panorama, I used three bracketed images for each of the 24 shots I would need for the 360° view with my camera and lens combination and used Exposure Fusion to get a better dynamic range for this image, i.e. the shadows are well exposed while the highlights are not blown out even with the sun in this image. Enjoy!
