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

Hells Gate and Triboro Bridge

Astoria and Astoria Park have some great views of the city. Digital, about 13000x3500px.

United Nations from Hunters Point

Among the nice things Queens offers are the magnificent and dramatic views of the Manhattan skyline. Digital, about 18500x1300px.

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.
