Carrie Tower & the Front Green
The Carrie Tower, which stands at the northwest corner of the Front Green of Brown University, was erected in 1904 by Paul Bajnotti of Turin, Italy, as a memorial to his wife Carrie Brown Bajnotti, granddaughter of Nicholas Brown. The 92 foot tower bears the inscription "Love is strong as death." The tower's bell, once rung to recognize major world events and Brown football team victories, now resides atop University Hall.

This picture was taken on April 16th, 2004 with a Nikon 995 Coolpix camera sporting an FC-E8 fish eye lenson a custom made tripod. Images were shot in manual mode at f3.6 for 1/2000 second, ISO 200. A total of six images were taken. Chromatic aboration was corrected using Adobe Photoshop by scaling the red and blue channels to 99.9%. The images were then sharpend with an unsharp mask filter and color corrected a bit. They were then 'defished' using DeFish software created by Ken Turkowski. Back in Photoshop I manually stitched the four images together. Then using Cubic Converter I converted the assembled panorama in to a cubic format and exported the top and bottom to be finalized once again in Photoshop. I then re-import the top and bottom into Cubic Converter to assemble the final QuickTime VR. Then into QuickTime Pro to embed copyright and other information about the file.
