I set out to do some long exposure night photography, and came across this vista.

This is my first attempt at shooting the Oak Bay Marina in Victoria, and it's a multi-image panorama at that, so I expect to go back and take a second crack at this.

This is a 7 image, single row panorama shot with my Nikon D600, Nikkor 105mm f/2.8 VR lens, and ProMaster T325P SystemPRO tripod. I used my Manfrotto 324RC2 Joystick Head instead of my gimbal pano head, so I wasn't expecting too much. I was quite surprised at the results.

I edited the images for colour, exposure, clarity, and noise reduction in Lightroom, then sent the stack to Hugin. Hugin picked up on this set with ease; the mass of vertical lines from the masts made that almost certain.

As I didn't use my pano head, I got a fair bit of drift from horizonal across the 7 images, which caused me to clip the top of the masts and building. Hopefully I'll have a new wide angle lens next time I try this, as I don't think my 50mm f/1.4D would give me clear enough images to pull this off... it's noisy on a good day.

All 7 images shot at full manual, including focus and white balance (2500k). Each exposed for 10 seconds at f/14, ISO 400, Nikon D600, Nikkor 105mm f/2.8 lens. Final composition returned to Lightroom for final exposure balancing, cropping, dodging and burning.
