      Acutally it's a bit more complicated than that... It was shot with a D200
      and 10.5mm lens... Stitched in PTgui.

      The "secret" is the following, the panorama consists of two different
      panoramas: One for the people at about 1/25s shutter speed, the other one
      for the fireworks was at 2-4s exposure time. For the fireworks I shot
      continous shots and blended these different layers (about 30-40 different
      images) afterwards to one seamless image. To get the exact the same
      positioning (and leveling) of the shots I loaded both equirectangular images
      into PTgui set the control points by hand, optimized and re-rendered one of
      the panoramas. Finally I set manually a layer mask to combine the images
      (fireworks above the horizon, people below).

      Quite some work, but it was worth it...

      Best regards,


      Matthias Taugwalder
