That's a novel shooting pattern.

What pano head do you have?

Are you shooting with the camera/lens in landscape orientation?

If shooting with that setup with camera/lens in portrait orientation (which would normally be the case with most pano heads) the conventional shooting pattern would be 4-around with a small positive pitch of approx. 5 degrees and an (optional) nadir shot.

No I shoot in portrait orientation, in landscape orientation I would have to shoot two rows!? wink

4 around is a minimum with this camera/lens combination, 6 around gives considerably more overlap to mask/correct moving subjects on the seams and is also beneficial for removing flares from lights etc. Shooting 2 extra positions takes considerably less time then additional editing during post-processing.

7° tilt up gives me a little more overlap on the zenith and still gets my tripod legs partly in the picture which have to be removed with a nadir shot anyway.

It’s a lovely tour. You’ve handled the ghosting and dynamic range very well.

I don’t see any old folks out shopping. Did you edit them out? smile

It’s hard to see enough detail in your thumbnail images to make a choice. Can you use cropped images as thumbnails?

I have trouble with jquery shadowbox misbehavior. On an iPad 4, if I zoom in on your preview image on the page, and then click the play icon, the shadow box is incorrectly sized for the viewport. On the iPad, a single touch of the X close icon should close the panorama, but it takes a double-click, which is confusing. There are more difficulties, but I’m not sure how to describe them. Maybe you need to use a shadowbox that has been developed for mobile use.

Amazing job with all those cars, pedestrians etc. moving around...I like the colours...I just wonder did you make HDR/enfuse bracketed images?
I'd use the basic theme in panotour pro and not the 2D, it has more style for a place like this...Especially the hotspots would for my taste suit better...
