My Favorite Panoramas, Part 2
Back in 2015, I published a post containing my top 10 panoramas. Today I will share 10 more favorite panoramas with you. The two main reasons I take panoramas are either I don't have a wide enough lens on my camera to capture the entire scene or I want to enhance the shallow depth of field. In each case, I will share some information about how I captured the panorama.
I shot this panorama of Norman Rockwell's studio in Stockbridge, MA with my 135mm f/2 lens. Stitching together several shots shot at f/2 helps enhance the effect of the shallow depth of field (defocused background).
I took this sunrise panorama at Fort Hill in Eastham, MA with my 150-600mm lens. I didn't have a wide angle lens on my camera at the time, so I opted for a panorama, and what resulted was this very high resolution image.
For this photo of the Mickey Mouse fountain in Disneyland, I took several shots and stitched them together to dramatize the effect of the defocused background.
I took this panorama at Rowena Crest Overlook on the border of Oregon and Washington. I stitched multiple photos together because I wanted to capture the wide view.
This is the beautiful lobby, which used to be a chapel, of the Grove, an apartment building in my hometown of Saratoga Springs, NY. Not having a very wide lens on my camera, I took several photos and stitched them together to capture it all.
I used my 135mm f/2 lens to capture several photos I then stitched together of this bridge on the Spring Run Trail, also in my hometown of Saratoga Springs. By getting closer to the bridge and taking a panorama, I was able to enhance the defocused background.
When visiting the New York State Capitol in Albany, my lens wasn't wide enough to capture everything, so I took a panorama. The stitching method I chose in Photoshop gave a sort of fisheye look to the finished image.
For this shot of San Francisco's Pier 39, even my widest lens couldn't capture the entire scene, so I opted for a panorama.
For this shot of a pony at Equine Advocates in Chatham, NY, I stitched multiple photos together in order to present a very defocused background.
The impressive interior of the Grand Canyon Desert View Watchtower was designed by Mary Jane Colter to look like an ancient Puebloan watchtower. I didn't have a wide angle lens on my camera, so I opted to make a panorama.
