    Well I went to NYC and I took this panorama. First time using a tripod and first time doing a panorama. I was happy with the way it turned out but I still feel that it could be improved...how?

    Good job indeed! It appears well-exposed to me, with foreground and background elements visible and the lights not all blown out.

    I think its beautiful. The only part I don't like is the fishing pole (?) sticking out of the right side. Other than that, very nicely done :thumbsup:

    I was gonna say 'that's Brooklyn and the Brooklyn Bridge', but I get the title now..:blushing:

    This shot is a beauty, although I could do without the 'mainland' in the corners. And yes, the pole is a bummer.

    maybe saturate it a bit more ? saturation is always good with colory nightshots.

    Wow nice work! Especially if this is your first! I agree that the fishing pole is in the way, but overall - great shot!

    Also... where did you take it? Looks like South Street Seaport but I wanted to verify.

    First, thanks for the comments! I appreciate them. Now...

    I used a Tamron 17-50 at 17mm and I think each shot was around...
    ISO 400
    f/8
    4 to 8 sec exposures

    It was really windy so I had to do a shorter exposure... I kept getting some shake.

    Yep! That whole area is really cool at night.

    It was about 10:45... I tried to get there earlier but oh well.


    So I took some advice and upped the saturation a bit and tried to photoshop the pole out and some of the side parts. Here's what I've got now--

    You're looking almost directly at my house from there!

    Cool.

    RMH159 it wasnt shot at South Street Seaport, this can be clearly seen if you look to the right of the shot past the Brooklyn Bridge and below it.
