Leeds Night Panorama

By TrevBatWCC    
Good morning all Ė if you can call it good with all this snow about Sad. After a second fall of snow on Monday night, itís coming down again thick & fast this morning and currently about 6 inches deep.
ĎLeeds Night Panoramaí is another image taken from the LGI helipad Ė though itís actually a stitch of 2 images. I didnít think about shooting a panorama at the time as we were limited to Ĺ hour up there, so by the time Iíd set up the camera on the tripod, groped about with the camera/lens settings (I really must take a torch on these night shoots!), 10 minutes had already elapsed. Looking through my processed images, two overlapping shots looked like they would stitch, so gave it a go. My first two uploads were taken looking south from the helipad, and this is looking east, showing the Civic Hall in the centre (just below the two bright lights) with its two familiar towers to the right, which overlook Millennium Square.
Glad to say the rash has greatly improved; the redness, swelling and soreness have all decreased, but think it will be a few days yet before Iím fighting fit, but thanks to all for your thoughts whilst Iím feeling a bit down. Anyway, the weather being as it is, Iím happy to stay in hibernation at the moment!

Both images shot on manual exposure & focus + tripod at: 15 secs, F8, 35mm, ISO 100
Really must be seen large + F11 if you have the time!

Single Raw images processed in Adobe Camera Raw, tweaked in Elements 6, with some assistance from Topaz Adjust.

Thanks again to everyone for your votes & comments on my previous uploads, it really is appreciated and encouraging.

Works really well as a pano. So clear and beautifully processed as always. Glad you're feeling a bit better, Trev, and, you're right, indoors is definitely the best place to be at the moment Smile
