I think that if you are not a little crazy, do not try to make a pano like this :-). I know it is not perfect, but the degree of difficulty was very very high and the Baptistery is not perfectly regular, because it has almost a thousand years of life.

7 photos; 24 mm (full format); f2,8; 1/160 sec.; 800 ISO. Obviously in the Baptistery is forbidden to use the tripod or the flash (and there is always a lot of people).

The Baptistry of Saint John (Battistero di San Giovanni) or Florence Baptistery is one of the oldest buildings in the city, constructed between 1059 and 1128 in the Florentine Romanesque style. Located near the Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore, it is one of the most important monuments in Florence.
From the artistic point of view is considered an absolute masterpiece.

The position of the Baptistery can be seen in the pano 16317. Up until the end of the 19th century, all catholics in Florence were baptized within its doors. It has an octagonal plan. All of the inner dome is made up of mosaics.

Schematically, the mosaics represent on the right side, the Last Judgement; on the left side, stories of Genesis or episodes from the life of Christ and St. John.


I love this kind of panorama !! I think it is always fun to do such a picture, people start to stare a bit at you and you get so nicely dizzy in the over-head passage of the exposure row :-)))

At this location one wants to spend hours lying on the floor just watching the ceiling. Thank you for sharing this spectacular view.
Kind regards, Matthias.
