This is a high dynamic range (HDR) mini-planet panorama of Memorial Stadium. Located on the campus of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC), Memorial Stadium is the home of the university's football team. Go Fighting Illini!

Here is another photograph of Memorial Stadium and more UIUC photographs.

When I originally took this panorama, I wasn't planning on creating a mini-planet out of it. In fact, I didn't even know about mini-planets until after I took the original panorama. As a result, I did not take the "down shot." If I had taken the down shot, the center of the image would not have a pinching effect that makes it look like the center of the fields is being sucked inward. Perhaps one of these days I'll head back to the stadium with camera and take the photograph again.

The resulting panorama ended up being 3808 by 4856 pixels. Printed at 150 pixels per inch (PPI), that would be a 25.3 by 32.3 inch poster. Though, if I go back to try it again, I'll probably try make it higher resolution.
