We shot this from Mt. Washington, looking down at The Point (where the Monongahela & Allegheny Rivers join to form the Ohio), from which the fireworks were launched. Our panorama includes glimpses of the crowds at The Point and in the Northside (near the stadiums).
We shot two panoramas in quick succession and chose selected images from each set to put this mosaic together. Including the crowd around us in the picture turned out to be a good decision, I think.
