Malahide Sea Scouts Centenary Photograph

It's not often that you get to photograph a Scout Troop that dates back a hundred years but that is precisely how old the Malahide Sea Scouts are. Ten years ago I was the official photographer who captured the 90th year celebrations. Ten years on, a different photographer, and with the advances of technology they opted to capture an aerial view for their official Centenary photograph.
Not to be put off, I joined the hundreds of parents and relatives who were assembled and decided to still capture the moment and go for detail rather than quality as I had no way of communicating my wishes to the assembled troop of over 500 people. Using a Gigapan Epic Pro and Nikon 7000 with 100mm Tokina 2.8 lens, I captured this remarkable 300+ megapixel image while the drone was attempting to photograph them from the air. Unfortunately the drone was in front of the mid-day sun and most of the scouts struggled to look at it and others shielded their faces, but still it makes for an interesting photograph. There are one or two anomalies which I intend to correct but see if you can see them? Click here to see the full 300+ megapixel image.
