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.
