    I think that's quite fun, and I like it, but I find it a little dark in places. I usually point the camera down until there's only a small strip of sky because otherwise the brightness of the clouds causes the autoexposure to darken the land too much.

    Can you explain a little more about how you created this photosphere? I see that you stated:

    It's just made by rotating the phantom and taking photos in every direction, then creating a panorama in Photoshop, and finally using the photosphere web tool to make them into a photosphere.

    Who's "photosphere web tool" did you use? Googles? A link to the tool that you used would be great. I'm specifically interested in posting to Google's photosphere gallery. Have you successfully done that? Thx.

    The tool I used seems to be offline now. I'm not sure what alternatives there are, but you basically need some kind of tool to add the relevant metadata to a panorama photo.

    Ireland, so close enough! It's been a pretty bad run of weather lately, I'm hoping that means we're using up our entire wind quota for the year early! :D
