Olympic Park, by Alex

al_kaholik (Alex) continues our London 2012 Paralympic Games theme from yesterday with this super cylindrical panorama of the London 2012 Olympic Park, including the main stadium, the ArcelorMittal tower on the left and the Water Polo Arena on the right. The rather angry sky matches the semi-silhouette of the park structures nicely. Alex explains: "The panos were done using Hugin pano stitcher under Ubuntu (Linux operating system). The whole process takes a couple of minutes for the full size images under 64bit with a 1.8GHz dual core laptop with shared video resource and 3GB RAM - thought it was pretty impressive. It'll also work RAW and is available for the Windows community." Alex has posted several additional Paralympics shots to our Paralympics forum thread, including a clever three shot combination showing one of the long-jumpers in three stages of his jump.
