It is not often that I publish an image the day after I take it, but in this case, I made an exception.
I was lucky enough to get tickets to last night’s Red Sox vs. Diamondbacks game at Fenway Park. I do get to a few games a year and always bring my camera, but what made this so special was the location of the seats – front row, field box, right field. With the wall in front of me, I knew I would have a good opportunity to shoot a decent panorama of Fenway Park.
no images were foundI chose to bring my most compact setup, D700 with 20mm prime lens. I tried not to annoy those around me. At the very beginning of the innings, with the players on the field waiting for the first pitch; I balanced my camera on the wall and fired off my brackets.
I took enough sets of brackets for three separate panoramas: early evening, just before sunset, and just after. After quickly looking through the sets, I opted to process this one first. I liked the contrast and colors. Also, JD Drew stood nearly motionless in Right Field. I was very happy with the results.
And the Sox won, 6-3
And a bonus image … After the game, I couldn’t resist grabbing some frames of the graffiti scribbled all over the right field foul pole – Pesky’s Pole to you local folks.
As always, you can click on the image to see a bigger version in an overlay.

This is fantastic Bob, and it’s also no surprise you beat us, WE STINK 🙂
But what a unique view from the outfield…most of these kinds of panos originate from the home plate area, but this is brilliant.
I also LOVE the foul ball pole…fantastic!!!
Superb shots, Bob. The pano has everything that you could ask for in it and I feel like I could scrape some of the paint off of Pesky’s Pole.
Loving it, dude. .
Great image Bob,
I like the perspective, composition and details extending deep into the background.
