Bloomberg Building (test shoot)

Those two panoramas are just location shots for a shoot I am planning later this year. The Bloomberg Building is incredible interesting, and incredible difficult to photograph.

West Village and Hudson Park

So far this is my largest panorama.  I especially like the ghost people… Analog, about 24200x8700px.

Manhattan, Astoria, and the East River

I shot this quickly one clear and pristine morning with my 3MP Nikon at 105mm. Unfortunately, I was in a hurry that day and the location wasn’t a very good place to shoot, so it’s just a single row panorama. Digital, about 23000x1700px.

Midtown from under the 59th Street Bridge

Handheld. PTgui didn’t like stitching this panorama, but I was able to straighten it out at the end. I liked the artifacts from the individual shots in this one and didn’t crop them away. Handheld, digital, about 20000x2600px.

NY Skyline during a storm

Handheld. Simple 3-shot pano. The storm swept in with incredible speed and a minute later it was pitch-black. Digital, about 4800x1400px.

Manhattan Upper Eastside from Roosevelt Island

Handheld. Digital, about 11000x1400px.
