360 panorama: Amsterdam Central Station

UPDATE 2019: check out my other panoramas on stuvelfoto.nl!

This panorama shows something that I quite often see; the people here are waiting for the ferry to cross the IJ (the lake that separates the northern part of Amsterdam from the rest).

This time I used Hugin for remapping and aligning the photos, but I merged them by hand in The Gimp. It’s quite an easy process, and it gives you much more control. I took the photos without a tripod or any other form of support, so not everything lined up perfectly, which is where the manual control came in handy.
