Atlanta Skyline Sunset Panorama


Atlanta Skyline Sunset Panorama

Thanks to Duane Stork (Duane Stork Photography) for allowing me to tag along as he shot Atlantic Station with a GigaPan.

This is my first panoramic photo… ever. All I knew to do was level the camera and overlap the images. I was unsure how to stitch the images together. Fortunately, Photoshop does a pretty good job. Since this shoot, I have progressed a bit. Check out my panoramic portfolio here:  panoramic art portfolio.

Technical:
  1. I captured 9-12 RAW images with a Nikon D3s and 70-200/2.8 at f8.0 in vertical orientation
  2. Processed in Lightroom 3.3 and converted to 16 bit TIFFs
  3. Stitched together in Photoshop CS5, levels adjusted
  4. Further enhanced in LR3

    Where in Atlanta was this taken? I have always wanted to do a pano in Atlanta but there aren’t many public places with great views.

    Robert, I’m sorry, but I am not at liberty to share the location. It is not public.

    Did you try Microsoft ICE? 64-bit stitching, quite easy to use and outstanding output.

    I did but it does not stitch the images and then blend nearly as well as PS CS5. I was totally surprised how well PS did. Check out my most recent panos. I think you will like them.

    Hi Carol! I think you’re doing a good job with these photos. It’s very good. It captured the real beauty of the city. Keep up the good work.

    Regards,

    Great images!! I have also used PS to stitch 9 raw images and wanted to edit in LR4. How did you save PS file? Export to LR? Any help would be great. Thanks!
