This is the second shot I took during my six days in Vila Nova de Gaia. I was delighted to find this scene only a minute's walk from my lodgings. These are the warehouses in Vila Nova de Gaia where Port wine is stored. Historically the wine was shipped up the river Duoro in boats that you can still see today (but not in this gigapan - TBD). The shot was taken with the idea of creating a VR image (as used to be supported by Gigapan's View in Google Earth facility) to throw the emphasis onto the hugeness of this storage facility. As a 'flat' gigapan the shot doesn't work like that and it seems I was not paying enough attention to the focal depth because the focus on the buildings in Porto (on the opposite side of the river) is a bit soft. Never mind! I will create my own alternative to View in Google Earth (one day :-) and as for the buildings, they will appear in other gigapans to come.
