I ventured out into the night hoping the summer mosquitoes had vanished... NOPE! I'm just about to take an antihistamine to reduce the welts and itching... I was breakfast, lunch, and dinner for those buggers.

These were all taken with the 1D MK3, 24-70L, at around 25 seconds.

First is a 14 shot panorama I stitched together in PS, then there are closeups of that bridge on the right (it has a restaurant on it) :)

Btw, tonite I realized I need a WIDER lens :)
Oh, and it's ironic I posted that first panorama image after starting a thread about image sizes often being too big on the forums :)

Sweet... I gotta ask - did you use a panoramic tripod head or just a regular one? I'm planning to do a pano soon and I'm wondering if I'm gonna get a lot of parallax w/ just a regular head.

Beautiful shots drisley! For the panorama, were each shot taken in manual mode or AV? thanks for sharing.

Thanks for the replies guys. This was one of those evenings where you go out, and when you are busing taking pictures, it feels like a bust... a waste of time. I was pleasantly surprised with how things turned out. But, I definitely need something wider than 24mm.

The panorama looks so much better at a large size (hah I was criticizing people who used to say this, but panoramas are the exceptions in this case). If anybody would like to see a larger version, just ask.

Funny you should ask... I am using a CHEAP Vivitar tripod... you know, the $25 kind you buy at Walmart or whatever... I need a new one, because when I was shooting in portrait mode, the camera was so heavy that the tripod "head" kept slipping down. :(

Excellent work...

One thing to keep in mind with panos, the wider the lens, the more distortion you have to deal with in processing.

It's actually better to have have 100 frames at a normal perspective than trying to use 5 from a fisheye...

I metered on the large bridge, then set to manual mode and shot all the exposures the same.

I really love how the 1D MK3 renders the blues... that's straight out of ACR, with no added modifications to colour. A friend of mine swears some of my day time pics must have been taken with a circular polarizer.

Thank you. I may post a link to a larger image later.

Really lovely images. Great work on the Pano.

I find panos really easy to do.. but all of the credit goes to the fantastic merging abilities of Photoshop CS3.

Btw, I should add that this pano is appoximately a 200 degree view.

And I shot these at the widest end of my 24-70L... and I had thought of maybe just using around 40mm to ger rid of any distortion. But, it seems to have worked ok as is. I guess the distortion on the lens isn't that bad.

If I read your OP correctly, you did the right thing by shooting in portrait. That will minimize the edge distortion by making the "top and bottom" into the sides.

Some of the best results I've gotten doing panos is to use a 50mm and shoot portrait. Manual exposure, manual white balance...
