    We were downtown last Wednesday night for the free concerts at the Pritzker Pavillion in Millenium Park with a few friends, and I thought I'd try a pano before we left. I really didn't think it would work, with the arches, but they weren't a problem.
    This is 5 horizontal shots stitched with PTGui. 17-55 f2.8 @ 17mm, 1/40th, F3.2, ISO 640, taken about 15 mins. after sunset.

    Thanks Anthony. I'd like to get this shot with more coverage of the surrounding buildings and 'cage'.

    Thanks Greg, the sound system is unbelievable. There really isn't a bad seat in the house.

    Thanks RockDawg. The cage is what supports the speakers, oh, and it's ART. I actually like the look, but have not been able to get used to the structure that houses the musicians, seen in the pano with the orange lights illuminating it.
