Dear all,

Taking advantage of one of those lovely typhoon having overflown Tokyo, I shot a few panoramic views of the city yesterday, among which these 2.





A quick 100% crop of the tower reveals a good amount of detail in this 280 megapixel image. Obviously, this being shot through a window is not totally as sharp as other images, but it is still fairly decent.



Cheers,
Bernard

I guess "decent" is one way to put it.

Nice shots, I really like the twilight version, especially the way the tower stands out from all the blue tones in the rest of the image.

2 x 9?  I like 'em both.  I see you moved the framing up a bit for the night shot.  Wish I knew how to previsualize panoramic framing a little better, I never know how much weight to give those night time skies until I can actually "see" them in post processing.

Thanks Jeff, such a cloud cover really helps since it serves as a fill for the lower part of the image, while reflecting itself more light and catching some nice dusk blue color.

I did the same pano 2 years ago with a cloudless sky, and it was much more challenging overall (using the ZD didn't help also).

Cheers,
Bernard

Should be fine at 2x9 feet indeed.

Thanks for the nice words, I guess that the choice of crop was relatively easy here because of the cloud features and darkness of the foreground. The later it gets, the more detail you lose in the city part and since the sky was pretty exciting...

I do in fact have another crop of the darker image shot a bit later with more focus on the lower part. It works OK as well.

My current intend it to keep the exact same crop for the 2 images and to combine them into a day/night 2 images piece on top of each other so as to get a more square frame for a large wall.

Cheers,
Bernard

Bernard, Fine stuff. Tokyo sure didn't look like that last time I saw it -- in 1954.
