Making a pano of this more or less quadratic motif isn't easy, and the modest height of 500 px isn't satisfactory, but the joy of the subject once again got the upper hand...

The Fontana di Trevi is one of the most visited monuments in Rome. The saying goes, that if you throw a coin, with your right hand over your left shoulder, into the fountain, you will come back to Rome some day. People must really like Rome and want to come back, because coins worth of 3000€ are thrown in every day of the year! According to wikipedia, 1,4 mio € was harvested in 2016, and they are used for various beneficent purposes.

I got to witness the "harvest", which is done with a vacuum cleaner like contraption, and I can attest to the large amount of money; severel times the basket was full and a new one was inserted. The process is on the pano done by personal in yellow vests, and as you can see the water isn't running during that time.

Pano made by 24 HF (RAW) in 3 rows, Canon 6D, 50mm, f/9, 1/200 sec, iso-100, developed in DPP (daylight, neutral, periphal illumination, moderate sharpness), stitched in PTGui pro, contrast, downscaling and sharpness in Irfanview.


Great work, Jan - very well done !!! LG Hans-Jörg

Gut gemacht. Wieviele Bildreihen hast du hier verarbeitet?

Ich denke, hier würde sich auch eine lineare Projektion anbieten.

3 rows. Added in the description. In my opinion, the lineare projection shows the sides way too distorted. With maximum 180­­ degrees, it is at its limits here. LG Jan.
