Thanks Shaun,

Yes the lights on the BB bridge were off which really sucked but it still worked out. Photos were taken last month.

And camera used was the D3s .

Nice shots, you should have fixed the distortion, though.

Thanks cris and Jim,

Eskimo, not sure which distortion you are referring to, some of these images are so wide that the distortion is a reality

The 6th picture, labeled 5, is a great POV and framing. I like the cityscape with the rugged rock in view. Such great contrast.

Hello Shane... hope you don't mind the cc... the distortion is a wavy or bowed horizon. You also have some buildings leaning left and some lean right. There is no reality in that. When you look at the horizon, no matter how you look, there are no wavy horizons. They should be straight.

If you don't have good pano gear and a perfectly balanced tripod and tripod head, you will need to work on these "distortions" or parallax errors.

I see what you are saying, I have great gear just need to work on technique and try and fix in post, which one do you think is the worst?? I wil try and redo and see what happens, I appreciate the suggestions.

Thanks

I like the #4 and #6 best from the series...

are these all stitched from multiple shots? I have a very similar image to that of #6 taken at 17mm on 7D and now looking at your image it makes me think mine is not that great :-)

You can see my image HERE

I should have covered more on left and right...May be next time :-)

TFS these beautiful images.

Very nice series. After all that hard work, I hope you worked up a appetite and had some good NY pizza...

The photos are gorgeous, how do you do the frames? Are they actions?

Beautiful work. I am also interested in how you are accomplishing the framing? It definately completes the image.

Thanks Indy and yes I did grab some pizza!!

Ronnie and Wally the frames are created when you do the upload to FM, if you pay for buy and sell there are a lot of different frames to choose from..

Fantastic work here!
Love to hear of the locations you used, I'm headed to NYC in December and be keen to try a few nightscapes.
