I wish I was a little more centered in the composition but this was the only place I could stand  from across the way.

New York City Skyline February 18, 2009

I visited Weehawken, NJ to photograph the New York City skyline over the Hudson River this past Sunday from Hamilton Park.

I took 12 images in total and used 11 images to create this panorama (but cropped the ends some).

I wish the sky held more interest for the photo…but I’m sure I will be back there sometime soon to retry again. I really want to go back at night and do a night panorama shoot.

Pano @ Topsail February 7, 2009

I did this panoramic of Topsail beach but for some reason if you look closely at it – it didn’t line up properly.

From far away it looks good but the ocean has some skips in it. I’m not sure why it happened but I tried it a few times and it still happened.

Does anyone have any advice as on what I could have done differently?

 

“From the Top of the Empire State Building” January 7, 2009

New Year’s Day 2009 was a great day!

Jo Ann and I showed our North Carolina crew around New York City for the day (their first time seeing the city) and braved the 20-something degree weather to do so.

The day started with a trip to the top of the Empire State Building (something I’ve never done before in my 33 years and I’ve been in NYC so many times in my life). My one goal was to take panoramic views of all of NYC from each side of the building and I got those shots and more.

Be sure to click on each panoramic photo to view larger see more of the details:

I can’t even express how cold and windy it was on top of the building! I’m not even sure if these photos can give you the full idea!

 

Barnapalooza Indiana (and more) December 30, 2008

I’ve been dying to work on these since I got home from Indiana since I’m a proud lover of barns and rural scenes.  Below you will find more from the “drive by shootings” series with Julie Lawson in Parke County, Indiana.

The first photo is a new spin on an earlier Pano that I posted –  that I felt fit well with the series.  The rest are all new; processed with the same texture with about the same opacity.  I normally wouldn’t do an entire series textured but for these I felt it fit so well.

I hope you love them as much as I do!

Santa Rosa Plateau – Panoramic December 26, 2008

On the day that Heather & I did our Strobist shoot (mentioned in the previous post) in the Santa Rose Plateau, I had a minute in between so I shot a few photos (with the intention of doing a panoramic) before the sun set completely.

39400 CLINTON KEITH RD. MURRIETA CA.

The Santa Rosa Plateau Ecological Reserve is located at the southern end of the Santa Ana Mountains in southwest Riverside County, near the city of Murrieta.

The Reserve consists of 8,300 acres and protects unique ecosystems like Engelmann oak woodlands, riparian wetlands, coastal sage scrub, chaparral, bunchgrass prairie and vernal pools.

Visitors to the Reserve can enjoy the oldest standing structures in Riverside County that once served as bunkhouses for cowboys dating back to 1846. These two adobe structures remain shaded by a 400 year old tree and separated by a relaxing, one-of-a-kind, picnic area.

 

Indiana Pano December 15, 2008

Julie and I had our very own round of “drive-bys” when I was in Indiana, visiting.

The two of us love “drive-bys” – we stop whenever we see something scenic that would make a great photo op.

It was SO cold but we had a great time pulling over and getting some shots of local barns and landscapes.

(The pano is best viewed in a large format so click on it to enlarge)

I’ll be sharing the barn series as soon as I have some time to edit it.

The photo below was taken a moment after I took the pano. We were ccccccold!
