    Here's my first attempt at a panorama. My dad and I went to Signal Hill, Long Beach, CA
    on Friday night to try out some shots. I thought "hmm now I could finally try a panorama".

    I was at 400mm on these shots, so we were pretty far away. The originals
    came out very hazy and orange, luckily shooting in RAW paid off.

    I have little experience with night shots, so all c&c is welcome.

    Looks great. There is something funny going on with eh building on the rights side. I can't tell if it's reflections or some kind of distortion. Other wise it's an A.

    Thank you!
    Actually, I did adjust the wb a lot. It was super orange originally, but I toned that down a lot. I still wanted to keep some of the "orange" look though.
    Well there were lots of reflections, but I also did some cloning to reduce the light flares. I think I cloned poorly in some cases, that might be what your seeing. Thanks for the comment.

    Did you mess with the levels to see if you could darken the sky a bit? Sometimes thats a fast way to do it and I think it would make the pic more dramatic if there was more contrast between the buildings and the sky.

    I like it a lot. Only downfall is the reflections on the buildings on the right side but thats out of your control.

    How many pictures were used to make this pano?

    Hmm.. nah I don't think that's necessary.

    Byoung, the original pano was 9 pics, but I cropped this version a lot. So I'm not sure what the equivalent of this one would be, maybe 5?
