    Cambridge-Side Panorama

    I had some down-time between meetings in Cambridge (Massachusetts) Thursday, so I planed ahead and brought my camera. I was looking for black and white opportunities, and got a couple of half-decent shots, but liked this color panorama of Boston and the Longfellow bridge best. It's five shots merged with CS4. The .tif is a whopping 400MB! A full size .jpg, only 14MB, is located at http://sdrv.ms/UGGNza.

    Nice pano Homer, good composition IMO. The only suggestions I have are to reduce the highlights a bit and adjust the mid-tone slider in Levels to get a bit more contrast. The image isn't over-exposed but it just looks a little washed out to me.

    It actually looks better on my monitor before .jpg compression. I didn't want to play with it more. The real issue is, do I want to print it? The paper alone would be a $50 investment and a frame would probably be as much, if not more. I think my son would like it at his restaurant in Boston. I have some photos there now and he has a good wall for it. Is it good enough to hang?

    An excellent idea - it should look great in a large print and what better place to hang it.

    Hi Homer. I agree that the highlights are too light and the colors are washed out because of that. When you tone down the highlights, be careful to preserve the darker areas under the bridge. I know you said it looks good on your monitor, but suspect it could look much better. My two cents worth.
