F-Number: 7.1
Focal Length (mm): 7.5
ISO: 100
Lens: Walimex 7.5mm/3.5

Technique
The shooting was done with a 3 meter (appx. 10 ft) tripod to reach a more elevated viewpoint. Actually it was a monopod which was mounted on top of a tripod. The lens was mounted with a custom-made bracket. Stitched from five HDR images taken with a Walimex (Samyang) 7.5mm fish eye lens on a Sony ILCE-6000. Four images around and an additional image for the nadir. Each HDR image was generated from three bracketed exposures within Lightroom.

Planinska jama (Planina cave)

This panorama shows Planinska jama (The Planina cave) which is one of the longest Slovenian water caves.

I was able to visit this cave at the annual PanoTools-Meeting 2015.

As the lens is a fisheye lens, four pictures easily cover 360°. To capture the large dynamic range of the scenery I took three exposures in each direction. I used a custom lens bracket on a tripod. The exposures were 2 f-stops apart. The exposures were blended in Lightroom and exported to be stitched with PTGui Pro. Zenith and nadir were retouched by hand in Photoshop.
