The Steel City

I’m sure that we all a pretty good idea of how our shots will turn out before we even export them from our cameras.  Usually, the final product is probably pretty accurate to what we thought it would be.  Every once in a while though, they can turn out beyond what we thought they would.  This is one of those times.

Last week as you know, I was up in the 58th floor of the Steel Building, the tallest building in downtown Pittsburgh.  It is more or less triangular in nature, and my idea was to take a panorama from each side and combine them for one huge panorama of the Steel City.  Above is the final result.  I will say that I missed one shot, just one shot, to make it a complete 360 degree panorama.  You can actually see the building on the left and right had side of the screen, well, at least the edges.  That is the one shot that I missed, otherwise it would have been a complete 360 degree view of the city.  Needless to say, I am still thrilled with how it turned out!  This is a 12 image panorama, with each image being made up of 5 brackets, for a grand total of 60 images.

Thanks for stopping by today folks, I hope that you all enjoy your weekend!
