NY Advertising Agencies

The area between the West Village and the Holland Tunnel is home to some of New York’s ad agencies, especially Euro (on the left) and Saatchi (on the right). Since this is a 180 degree panorama, I was struggling a bit with the composition: panoramic, or wide angle? I think for this the wide angle …

Woolworth Building from Park Place

All three panos are from the same shoot, I just couldn’t decide which one I like better. For one, the Woolworth Building is just New York’s second prettiest old high-rise, so it would be cruel to cut it out, on the other side, the WTC buildings are coming up, and they are just ultra modern …

Cop Cot in Central Park (II)

This is another attempt to photograph the cop cot. The first one was beautiful, snow and everything, so I was hoping to recreate some of the magic, but I guess this scene is really difficult with out snow, so I will give it another try in winter, given that we will ever see snow again …

East River Roundabout

The East River Roundabout park is easily the most unknown and inaccessible park in NYC. It’s only use at the moment is a dog run. The structure is an old garbage transfer station, and the sculpture on top of it was designed/installed in 1995 by Alice Aycock. The NYC parks department has a bit more …

Johnson City, TX Christmas Lights

Johnson City looked like a small Texas town during the day, but transformed itself after sunset into a christmas light spectacular, with everybody competing who has the most lights out, and the obvious winner was of course the local utility company, who decorated a whole grove of trees with lights, Hill County Style…

Austin, TX: River Sunset and Kettle Restaurant

On our road trip through Texas we landed in Austin and spent one and a half day, barely enough to get a good impression of the city. I had the feeling that we had not enough time and everything felt a bit rushed, but at least I managed to shoot some panoramas. Of course I …

Houston/Baytown Gas Station

One of the fascinating aspects of Houston was the clustering of well known staples, like Starbucks, Wafflehouse etc. This panorama is an attempt of a panorama… I wanted to capture the handful of large signs, but I should have probably spent more time to get it right.

Goose Creek Memorial Highschool in Baytown, TX

It was just a very curious evening, and we decided to simply walk around and see how Baytown looks at night, and see if there is anything interesting to photograph. I have to admit that this might not be the most successful panorama that I have ever taken.

Chemical Plants in Houston

The oil and chemical industry is all over Houston, particularly in the south, and the sites look fabulosly at night, much nicer than the handful of installations in NJ. If you happen to own one of these, or work for one, please contact me, I would love to photograph some more of these for your …

Shell Gas Station, Harlem

This was my second attempt photographing this gas station, and gas stations in general. It took a lot of patience, since it is actually a very busy gas station, with cars constantly pulling in and filling up.

Alice in Central Park (II)

This is another attempt to capture the sculpture in an interesting panoramic way, I am not completely happy yet, and will have to wait for some night to try it again. Here is the previous attempt: newyorkpanorama.com/2008/08/20/alice-in-central-park

Long exposure HDR bracketing with Arduino Bracketmeister

I finally got around to post a test panorama exposed with my Arduino Bracketmeister. For those interested, the base exposure for the relatively dark backyard was 15s at ISO800/f5.6 and brackets at +-3 and +-1.5EV (2, 6, 15, 40, 120sec). Exposure fused directly in PTgui.

Earth Hour in New York

Last night at 8.30 local time was Earth Hour, and 4000 cities world wide participated and turned off their lights for one hour, with great results. New York City on the other hand was a big disappointment… sure, some of the larger structures turned off (Empire State Building and the Citi Corp Building, but over …

Upper East Side (from Roosevelt Island)

Ever since I shot the pano in April, I was unhappy about it (the second one), and decided to reshoot it (the first one), with more coverage to the left, and a bit more resolution. About 400 megapixel.

Macy’s Parade 2007

I went to the 2007 Macy’s Parade balloon setup staging area around the American Museum of Natural History, which is quite a spectacle for everybody. Starting around midnight, I worked all night, up to the moment the parade actually leaves the staging area. I shot so many panoramas that I am still not finished editing …

Empire State Building (from 6th Ave)

Peg, who I met at the last day of the Tabla Rasa Show, was so kind to offer her rooftop for this great panorama. I think this is so far the nicest ESB panorama. What do you think?. Digital, about 1 gigapixel.

New York Supreme Court

This panorama is a little bit an experiment… I wanted to get as much supreme court as possible into one photo. Hopefully I can get a panorama from the inside one day, since the hallway alone looks very promising. Digital, about 400 megapixel.
