Default Swimming with tigers

Here's my first underwater VR Photo, it's still a little rough.
As you will see there are some tigers swimming in the pool all around and over me.
I still need to make up a number of these, pick the best ones and do some more cleaning up with Photoshop.

Great pano, Roger!

I can only imagine the difficulties involved - you're leading such an exiting life!

Neat!
Tigers don't like to get their heads under the water do they?
I think you'll need at least one head to make it super cool.

I haven’t even come close to looking at all of the photos yet, I just found some that looked easy and did a quick test. I have photos of 5 different tigers in the pool at the same time and some going overheard like this one.

I had to move my camera out of the way a few times to keep if from being hit by the tigers.

Most likely I have some with a tiger all of the way underwater. I shot a lot of photos of tigers and other animals doing all kinds of wild things.

Hereís a shot looking into the pool through the large glass windows where you can see me and my setup down on the bottom as Iím trying to get out.

Yes this is my pole setup, I love using a pole!

When doing these underwater shots I only had about 5 minutes to get ready, moving my cameras around, putting one in the waterproof housing, putting on a wetsuit, weight built and getting into the pool.
This first time in I only had a 5 minute air tank and on the last 2 breaths I knew I was running out of air but stayed down for the last few shots, after all it was only 12 feet to the surface. I quickly found out that I couldnít get up to the next level kicking and swimming with only one arm while holding the camera pole setup with the other. I had not practiced releasing the weight built as time was so short when getting ready and I didnít really want the audience seeing me do this unless things really got bad.

Wait a minute, I have a pole in my hand. I pulled myself up the next level with it, which was around 8 feet deep and one more time to get to the shallow water. Probably only took about 20 seconds and I found a new use for my pole!

Btw, I have been though 2 certified diving course.

I have said it before, Roger - you're the pole (pool?) master!

Running out of air in water would not be my choice in any way or form. I once drowned, and that experience has left me with respect for the art of breathing.

Great work you have accomplished there yet again.

I've got this tiger tour about half done and could use some feedback before I continue. If there's any bugs it would be easy to fix them now before adding more photos and code.
I don't have boarders around, or text above all of the popup menu images yet.

Thanks,

Roger
