I took this VAST photo of a fallen spruce tree over Jordan Pond in Acadia National Park, Maine, on October 1, 2014, 11:21 AM. Ice thawing in the spring every year has moved the log from its original location further up the pond. The wind was gusting to about 20mph at times, so I used a 10-stop neutral density filter to allow me to use a slower shutter speed to blur the trees and water, but still allow me to use a wide aperture for a shallow depth of field, or “bokehrama”. I focused on the middle of the tree in the pond and let everything else fade out of focus.
Camera settings: 200mm, f/4, ISO 100, 8 seconds.
Stitching data: 3 rows of 10 images.
Equipment used: Nikon D700, Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8 VR II, Promote Control, B+W 10-stop ND filter, and Really Right Stuff TVC-34L tripod w/ leveling base & pano/gimbal head. RAW conversion to 16-bit TIFF via Lightroom, aligned via AutoPano Giga, and blended in Photoshop.
This 178-megapixel VAST photo is one of the highest definition photographs ever created. It has a resolution equivalent to 86 HDTVs.

Every VAST Print has two certificates of authenticity hand-signed by the artist and the printmaker: one affixed to the print and one standalone. Additionally, each print is assigned a unique serial number via a permanent hologram seal and recorded in our registry. Its provenance is tracked and verified using state-of-the-art digital blockchain encryption technology.
VAST Displays are ready-to-hang works of art that contain a VAST Print sealed between flame-polished acrylic glass and an aluminum backing. A hidden brace on the back causes the display to gracefully float off the wall for a sleek, modern frameless look that complements nearly any decor style. Learn more
