Road to Riches

Hi all,

I am still going through my NYC photos and came across this one. I had my crappy kit lens with me and wanted to get a wide angle so I tried my luck with a manual multishot to create a pano. This is my first attempt so I am quite happy, please let me know what you think and I would love to know what I can do differently next time as I am learning all the time and your comments keep me trying.

Ric

Re: Road to Riches

The only thing I would have tried would be to get the entire building in the final result.
I love doing street panos like this and from my own experience I've found you need to make sure you get enough shots to give yourself room to capture every bit you want.
After any distortion corrections and cropping, you still might not have enough left if you don't.
Even then, it isn't always easy to know when enough is enough.
This is still pretty good, and I like that you sort of get a peek down each street on either side of the building. The kind of stuff I look for in my own street panos.

Re: Road to Riches

Thanks for the comments, I know what you mean about more is better, I did take more but my laptop would only process 6 without setting on fire and that took 2hrs to convert..... I am a poor (as in cash poor) photographer 😢

Re: Road to Riches

It is an interesting photo. Technically, the perspective is well controlled, especially for a multi-shot pano, EXCEPT for the slight in-leaning on the left side and there is a slight pincushioning (dimensionally wider in the corners) on the bottom, ie there seems to be a crown in the intersection with the road falling off to the right (I envision Manhattan being "flat"). I'm curious as to whether you kept the lens axis horizontal (thus more space below the building, top cropped off) to help with perspective? I also note distinct differences in the sky on left vs right corner....perhaps a function of using a polarizer with differing effects as one pans from less to more perpendicular to direction of sun.

Did you do some HDR or dodging/burning? I'd expect more contrast between the sunlit and shadowed areas given the sunny conditions. While I like seeing detail in the shadows, I also get the feeling that it's not "real". Real being defined more as what a CAMERA single shot would reveal and less about what one's eye/brain would perceive.

Overall a very challenging shot well done.
