WOW! These are spectacular! The Manhattan sunset is incredible! From where did you shoot? Do you sell these and how?

That first one is hilarious! Probably a funny story behind it!

42nd and Madison - handheld or tripod? I love this one!

I was wondering the same thing....for a while I was beginning to question my understanding of how panoramas are shot. I'm pretty sure it didn't involve something like "Hey everyone, there's a hundred bucks* each for ya if you stand still for a couple of minutes" :D

Absolutely amazing!

As JPS, wondering about merging photos into panorama with so many moving people ? :confused:

How is nikon 35-70 f2.8 in companion with d200 ? Fully satisfied ? I'm planning to buy that lens so your advice would be appreciated ...

Hi Mood,
Thanks for the kind comments. Your summer images from your trek were fantastic.

Hi Mike,

The summer sunset was taken from my condo balcony.

I do commercial licensing of my images.

1st shot...taken at a summer street fair in NYC. The lady was eating a banana while yelling at her 'husband'. I just stumbled upon it and grab a few snaps

The Chrysler building shot was handheld

Thanks for the kind comments :)


Excellent, WOW!
Thank you Leung :)

Outstanding RFC!

Regards,
Thank you BarryD3

Beautiful captures of my favorite city! Thanks for sharing.
Thanks Zee71 :)

Just unbelievable shots RFC!
Thank you Kgilby

I second the "WOW". You are still the man RFC :wink:
Hi Dez,

Yes I'm still the man who hides all of his reject images :)


Wow is to tame an exclamation for these superb shots. Now, this is what Photography is all about!!!!!!
Thank you Sanford
Finding interesting compositions in NYC is fairly easy :)


Wow.*



*sorry. can't think of anything original to say tonight, so I'm copying from the others.
Thank you Mr. Graceful :)

Hi RFC,

Great photos and very inspirational. Will have to give some thought on how to do similar.

Did you photomerge in CS3?

Many thanks for sharing,

Regards

Chris
Hi Chris,
Thank you for the kind compliments. My default stitching software is PTgui. CS3 has a nice stitching engine but I still prefer PTgui for it level of user control.

Hi JPS,

All the credit goes to the software PTgui. Its stitching engine handles most of the problems with moving objects. The program also can output a stitch in PSD format with layers and masks for additional corrections in CS3.
Here is a link to a simple tutorial I made a while ago ...http://rfcgraphics.com/Ptgui/tutorialptgui.html

Hope your summer is fun and rewarding :)

Hi RickyG,

The real magic is the software PTgui. You can dl a demo at www.ptgui.com
Bottom line... I shoot fast and let the software worry about the moving objects. Also when necessary, layers and masking corrections are done in CS3. http://rfcgraphics.com/Ptgui/tutorialptgui.html


Ah, Robert. You've taken me back to NYC again.

You've got me this time though. I have no idea where the "Oval Buddah" is. :redface:

Ronnie

Hi Ronnie...

Finally Gotcha !!!! LOL

The Oval Buddah was at the IBM building at 590 Madison Avenue. It was on display there because it was too large to fit at his exhibit at the Brooklyn Museum. http://www.newyorkology.com/archives/2008/05/too_big_for_bro.php

Hope you and your family are having a wonderful summer :)



Great images ! Great panoramas ! :smile:

Hi Tblazi

Moving objects and Panoramas....PTgui rules !
I posted a link to a simple tutorial above if you are interested.

The nikkor 35-70 is my default walk around lens. Sharp and light, it fits my needs. I really enjoy street photography and when mounted on a D200 it is very discrete :)


Thanks for the kinds comments :)

Nice series. I've been wanting a 35-70 2.8. You're not helping my NAS sickness any at all. Thanks for posting.
Thanks Olddogg,

The 35-70 is one of nikon's best bargains at this point in time :)


Those are some terrific shots. Keep them coming.

Thank you Gu32 :)
