How was this Virtual Tour made
The spherical photo of Marina El Cid was taken at noon with a harsh sunlight.
F/11 or even smaller diaphragm apertures give a quite interesting effect in luminous objects as the sun or light bulbs forming starts that beautify the pictures.
The shoot on board was complicated because of the shaking, so the stitching in PTGui was made manually by placing some points, due to automatically it was impossible, and then in Photoshop adding layers to make some corrections.
