A wide choice of strictly self-made panos
can be admired as JPEGs (some can be displayed
in a Helmut Dersch's JavaViewer to get the
right pano feeling...).

I have written a small perl-based program pto2ptmac which
transforms Hugin project
files (.pto) to PTMac project
files. This allows to use autopano-sift (automatically
creates accurate control points, including for fisheye images), which
happens to produce
a Hugin project file. A pto2ptmac.zip archive
contains all necessary files as well as a "Read Me" document.

There are 3D pictures of the Dalbade
and the Capitole
, two of Toulouse's sights. From the stereoscopic
as well as the historical point of view the
former is more interesting. It has more of
a foreground which makes it more 3D and shows
the tower of the Dalbade church which today
is somewhat beheaded after the tower had collapsed
early 20th century. The Capitole has barely
changed after the cars have been banned from
the Place de la Capitole.

by Alphons Fakler a group of 10 people (including
me) have started a photography project on
Zürich's Hauptbahnhof (German for main
station) which resulted in a bunch of
pictures, a book and an vernissage/ exhibition
in early 1998 at Technopark.
The picture on the left is one of my four
picture contributions to the booklet "Bahnhof"
for which I was held responsible. The book
can be downloaded (pdf-file,
4.3 MB) though it needs a reasonable connection...
Another photographic challenge was the solar
eclipse in August 1999. Small, bright and
even moving: not an easy task. In Baden-Baden,
clouds where my natural filter (partial eclipse

total eclipse at 12h
