Harbour-Island-Panorama1.jpg This shot is from the same location as the one below, just taken with a different lens. This one was shot at 14 mm. It still didn't allow me to get much of the channel in the picture, but more than the previous one. Incidentally, the channel that you see is actually straight, the stitching together of 4 separate images causes the distortion. This was shot early New Years Eve from the 18th floor of the Grandview condo. D3X Nikkor 14-24 lens

This is a beautiful shot. Every time I see one of your shots of today's Tampa, my memory takes me back to 1967-1968 Tampa. What a different place. Thanks for posting these.

Do you want it curved? Maybe a 24 and 8 shots, 4 for the bottom half, 4 for the top half?

Thanks, Dennis.

I don't want it curved Dennis, but I don't think that there's any way around it from this location. I'm using a Really Right Stuff pano head and the head has to be level, so there;s no tilting the camera down or up. There's a lot that I don't know about taking and processing panos, so I am open to suggestions.

Dave black photography... something to keep in the book marks. He has this write about doing this, without panning the head. He creates a pano from 3 large frames (d3) and describes the process here; http://www.daveblack...n-something-new I would think there might be an updated version by now. But the idea is to move the tripod, not sure you have room for that. And instead of landscape, I pretty sure he used portrait orientation for the 3 shots to make a landscape orientation. If you space is tight, I think that 4 down, and 4 up, just moving the tripod and then stitch might help. He is doing the grand canyon, but, I think the process is there and can be modified for this. I did a test of this process, pic was not worth saving, just a house. But I did a 4x4 and it did work out well. Enough for me to book mark this process as I have this one site I want to try this on. It just closed right now for restoration, at least, where I want to be.

Thanks, Dennis.

Dennis, I looked at Dave Black's website. He is incredible. Thanks. I've tried using the camera in the portrait orientation and like doing that, and if the subject matter is far off it works fine, but I find that the distortion is even worse that way in this shot. Plus, I have the balcony railing to contend with.
