A bit different to my usual landscape, I shot this panoramic of Circular Quay whilst out teaching a private photography course. Photographed from the top of the Sydney Harbour Bridge Pylon Lookout, an excellent place for panoramic views of the city, if only it stayed open after 5pm a sunset here would be amazing.
This panoramic photo is the resulting stitch of several hand held landscape photos taken with my Canon L Series 70-200mm F2.8. Ensuring I shot with a steady hand and overlapped each image sufficiently Autopano Pro was able to stitch the images with no problems. After then I applied a tilt shift effect in Photoshop blurring the top and bottom of the image to accentuate the miniature look of the boats (aka miniature faking). The elevated perspective lends itself nicely to tilt shift photography where the ferry already looked miniature.
