Buckhead Sunset Panorama Photography 2


The quintessential Buckhead sunset panorama photo? I’m not sure, but it’s pretty good.

Another view from earlier in the evening.

  1. The Sovereign building is 50 stories tall. I am directly across the street standing on the roof of the 11th floor.
  2. Nikon D3s with Nikon 14-24/2.8 at 14mm.
  3. Tethered to Dell M1210 laptop.
  4. Imported images using FastPictureViewer Professional. I like FPV because it allows ingesting while still leaving images on the CF card.
  5. Shot 11 images, every 24 degrees using Nodal Ninja 5, rented from @BorrowLenses
  6. Did a few double row stitches to capture the top of the Sovereign building.
  7. Images captured in manual exposure, ISO 200, Daylight color balance at f/8.0 through f/10.0
  8. Images processed slightly in Lightroom 3.3 (lens corrections, exposure, contrast and white balance) and edited in Photoshop CS5 (Merge to Panorama) as RAW images.
  9. Totally impressed with the way Photoshop stitches 2 rows. I also added a little Content Aware Fill in the sky are to permit for a larger image.
  10. It was very windy so I was concerned about sharpness. No need, this image is sharp as a tack.
