DUMBO Panorama

DUMBO Panorama

A 17mm lens, fully open on a full-frame camera gives a unique perspective of the Manhattan skyline. Taking that a step further I’ve strung five together to give a 72.5 megapixel panorama! This is actually five sets of three exposure bracket (15 images total) strung together, but sadly the distinctive distortion the lens gave me a little trouble! If you’re …

I’ve just returned from a three day break in New York; my wife’s birthday present, our second honeymoon and also this HDR Photograph of the Manhattan skyline was taken on my birthday.

An exercise in grime…

As regular viewers of my blog will attest, I’m a big lover of grime, grunge, dystopia and anything with a hint of malaise. I’ve also believe I’ve got an eye for beauty, and for fun I often like to take a scenic image and make it grimey. This is an exercise in grime…
