My wife and I made a quick trip to Dallas last night to take some photos of the skyline. This is my first panorama so C&C is appreciated. I know that the sky around the W hotel is exposed different than the rest of the photo. Can someone point me to a tutorial or guide that would help me fix it? I tried darkening that original frame and then photomerging them in photoshop, but it didn't seem to help. I have PS CS3, but I am fairly new to it, so any help would be appreciated!

Also, I don't know where to host it in a larger format, sorry if it's a little small.

Thanks for looking!

Looks great but larger would be better - Have you tried Flickr? or imageshack?

That is linked from flickr..I uploaded the original but that is as large as a size as you can get with a free account I guess. I tried photobucket as well. Haven't tried imageshack yet..

Looks fine to me. I am going to use your experience as an inspiration to shoot similar scenes.

Looks cool at that size but hard to tell anything regarding detail. If you are having problems finding hosting PM me and I will host it for you so you can have a link that is full res.
Cheers.

I'm curious as to which vantage point you shot this from...there are a few overpasses that span the Trinity River spillway, as well as the levee itself.

:D Just above the Belmont Hotel on Ft. Worth Ave there is a cliff with several lots for sale. We just went to one of the empty lots. I had read about several places to go for this type of shot, one including having to pull off the road on I30 at an overpass. I didn't like that idea so much so we decided to try the spot above the Belmont first. It was a spectacular view!

Thanks...I know the area well, just never gave that particular spot any thought. The levees aren't the safest spot either, unless you're carrying, due to the drunks/crackheads that usually frequent the underpasses. I thought you may have shot from the overpass on either Hampton or Sylvan...

Late afternoons are also a good time...the late sun usually blasts the glass facades on the buildings with a gold light...looks pretty cool.

Yeah, I knew that even the area around the Belmont turns sketchy pretty quick as you get away from it, so I was prepared. lol. I have seen a panorama that was taken in late afternoon that had the gold light on the building, it was very cool. It was actually what inspired me to go take this picture, we just didn't get there early enough. I like the night version too though!

I know this is an old thread. I went to the location you took this shot at, seems to be some small town homes or something there now. I didn't feel like dealing with anyone after I set up so I just left. Maybe I'll go in the day and see if anyone has a problem with me being there at night. Do you or anyone else know of a similar location? This would have been a perfect spot.
