Monochrome Weekly #5

My contribution to the latest Monochrome Weekly is the British Museum in London. It's made up of 3 pictures stitched together. If you have never visited the British Museum, you are missing out:

  2. Have never visited the British Museum, but would love to...excellent job on the stitching. I like the repetion of triangles.

  8. Such a lovely clean image, Stephen. I like the tiny people negotiating the stairs on the LHS - reminds me of Escher. However, the structure of that over-arching roof turns this from a scene into a photograph. You have mangaged to capture the black as black, the white as white, and therefore the greys in between fall into place. This is my aim, but I have a way to go as yet.

  9. A powerful and beautiful image. You can almost walk into it. Very good black and white.

  10. The light inside the converted central courtyard of the British Museum is amazing. A library was built and the whole area covered by that stunning roof that gives a slightly blue haze. Although the exihibits are well worth seeing, the building itself is worth seeing too.

  11. Beautiful creation in this panoramic stitching! I particularly like the detail seen in the ceiling's (skylight's?) symmetrical pattern.

  12. Very nicely done. What did you use to stitch this so seamlessly?

  13. Hi TG

    I used Panorama Maker - a bit out of date now, but easy to use. I believe that there is some free software for making panoramas around.

    The kiey is plenty of picture overlap and to get the central picture dead in line.
