Pushing The Limits

 

We went to the Easter Service at Central United Methodist Church yesterday. The service and music were fantastic with the choir and chamber orchestra. The old hymns were quite moving and the Hallelujah Chorus at the end of the service was unbelievable.

I thought it would be fun to try some stacking and stitching on a full sanctuary. Well, that proved to be quite a challenge for me and the software. The first two photos are made of stacked images of four perspectives (two high and two low), with a high and low from each side stitched vertically, then the two resulting vertical photos stitched horizontally. I attempted three upper and three lower photos, got them stitched horizontally and vertically for each side, but it was too much for the panorama software to stitch the resulting right and left sides together.  The last photo is one of the video cameras they use to tape the service in front of one of the stained glass windows — an interesting juxtaposition.
