Glow of Detroit. This was a dusk shot taken from Windsor Ont Canada across the river to Detroit, MI USA. It is a 4 image / 7 bracket photo taken from a portrait perspective. I used Photomatix 4.2 on each 7 bracket image and used exactly the settings on each panoramic image. I then used PTGUI to stitch the images together. All other editing was done using Corel Paint Shop Pro X4.
Used Portrait lens. Nikkor 85mm prime.
Bracket was 20s to 1/30s.
Three position head on Tripod – Head and Tripod leveled.
Wireless Remote Shutter control
