Well done! Great photo!
GREAT JOB...Awesome shot....
Getting out the kneepads!
Have you printed that out? I can imagine how amazing it would look in a long black pano frame!
This is a great picture
Thanks so much all-
That's incredible Jeff!!! Really nice job!
Ok, so I might have missed this somewhere Jeff, but can someone tell me HOW you get onto the roof of the contemporary to take shots??? Pooh_Girl, (aka DW) and I are staying at the contemporary in December and I would LOVE to get a daytime and nighttime pano shot from up there!!!!
It was not easy- after parachuting onto the roof I had to quickly take the pictures and then rappel down the side of the building and escape before I was captured by mouse security. Actually I detailed the experience in my trip report.
What Kit did you use to get this shot.
There are three of us over in July next year and would love to try and get a shot half as good.
I used my Nikon D50 with a 70-200/2.8vr lens. I set to ISO 200 and I think around f5.6. Tripod mounted with a remote cable release. I think the exposure was around two seconds per shot. One thing I would change if I was trying at night again would be to take a heavy tripod- I used a portable one for this. With the long exposures- heavy lens- and the wind up there I think it would have helped considerably. Next time.
Thanks for the info, must give it a go.
