I was inspired by the amazing work I've seen this week at 365Project.org to do another panoramic photo. I noticed how still Victoria's inner harbour was last night, so I quickly setup on my deck and took a sequence of 3 long exposure shots to make this panorama.
The 3 exposures were taken left to right for 15, 30, and 20 seconds respectively, all with aperture priority f/22 and ISO 100, using my Nikon D600 and 105mm macro lens. I used my standard Velbon tripod head, rather than my pano head, so I levelled the camera with the D600's built in horizon to get in as much of the vertical as possible.
All 3 shots were corrected in Lightroom 4 by reducing saturation, vibrancy, and highlights, while recovering shadows and boosting clarity and sharpness to compensate for the haze in the air.
Images output as 16 bit TIFFs and stitched together in Hugin using the Architectural projection.
Final round trip back into Lightroom to balance the sky's brightness across the whole range.
51.9 megapixels (12,605 x 4,114), 251 MB compressed TIFF spanning 46 degrees.
Nikon D600, Nikkor 105mm f/2.8 VR lens, 15/30/20 second exposures at f/22, ISO 100. Stitched in Hugin, Architectural projection.
