Ultra wide panos...a dilemma

Ultra wide panos...what to do with them?

Making wide panoramas can be fun...but once we finish the photograph, and stitched it up to be an ultra wide...what do we do with them? Display on the internet boders on being rediculous, as you get a sliver of the picture at say 1024 pixels wide. Printing of course the best way to display them.

Take this image below...a 9 panel stitch of the Marina Bay area, taken from the roof of the Esplanade.

Click on the image for a 1920 wide image...even at that size, too large for typical web pages, the height of the image is a miniscule 260 pixels high.

Printed out so that the height is 610mm would yield a print which is 4.5m long...quite large, for most homes or offices.

What do you do with your ultra wide panoramas?

I don't know what you do with them but that's a pretty impressive shot.
