Skyline Seattle: A Night View.

Midnight Seattle: Seattle SkylineClick the image for a large view. Click here to see the full resolution zoomify version:

I recently went on a trip to Seattle. One of my missions was to shoot the skyline at night and in HDR. Above is the result. It’s a 41.7 megapixel Panoramic photo of the Seattle skyline from the Space Needle to the Black building. Naturally I’ve re-sized the version above to make it accessible, but if you click on it you can see the large version. It must be seen big to be appreciated.

This piece is not finished yet, but will be officially released in the future. If you’re interested in getting one of the editions you can contact me. I plan to offer the feature piece as a large ultra limited edition. Probably 10-12 feet long.

For the photographers among you, this was made from 4 images taken late at night from my Canon 5D MK2. I used a Canon 70-200 2.8 at around 160mm on a tripod and shot 3 image 2EV brackets. Working on them individually I rendered the primary HDR’s with Photomatix Pro, then used PTGUI to stitch them together. I’ll post a more complete article once the final is done… Gavin

    Great night shot and only a few little nitpicks I could find in the merge. Great test of the new cam and congrats on getting out and grabbing this one! I have a sunrise from this spot with wild colors from the forest fire haze at first light. I think I know the exact spot for this vantage point (and less foliage at this time of year). Get on top of your vehicles roof rack or carry a ladder for a higher vantage point from here and you can minimize even more of the foreground trees. Great shot and reflections.

  2. That’s awesoe Gavin. It seems lots of people are doing panos at the moment, but I’ve not seen such effort going into a HDR on this scale. Kudos!

  3. Hi,
    I was wondering what you would charge someone to have a copy of this?
    Thank you, D. Symington of Seattle
