The Waterfront

no images were found

A little panorama of Boston for you today. I shot it last week from the Hyatt Harborside Hotel at Logan Airport, the same night I shot Boston Backlit.

The image is comprised of seven sets brackets, processed in Photomatix and stitched together in Photoshop CS3.

After that, the fun began. There were noticeable artifacts in the sky – clashes in tonality where the edges of the images were combined. With all the boat traffic in the harbor, there was also a good deal of nastiness in the water that had to be mitigated. And lets not forget the dust spots – x7. It took a while to fix those issues.

Hope it was worth it.

Be sure to check out the big version. And be sure to zoom in.

  1. The only bad things about panos is I feel like I need a giant barn sized computer screen to appreciate them in full. This is great, and definitely worth the work you put into it.

  2. This is the best picture I have seen all week, Bob! Holy SMOKES dude, I really did forget to breath and woke up on the floor of my office here! Awesome work, thanks for spending what must have been a huge amount of time working your magic, making this perfect. You’re an inspiration to me.

  3. Terrific image, Bob. This is the kind of image needs to be printed on metal full size. How much time in post did you spend on this?

    Thanks Wayne, I probably spent 5-6 hours over the course of a week. That included a bit of trial and error fixing the sky and water. The initial photomatix processing if the original brackets went smoothly but was time consuming.
