Times Square at Night

This was a tricky shot. I used a Canon G9 set at 50mm lens focal length and set exposure for night at f5.6. 1/15 sec at ISO 400. The camera was balanced on a monopod and as I stood in the center of the Times Square Island I took 5 overlapping images, carefully turning the camera so that about 1/3 of each frame would overlap. I did this procedure about ten times. Back at the computer I carefully assembled, lined up the best frames from the 10 sequences, rotated the center frames around an axis that would cause them to line up with the lateral frames and voila! Times Square in Panorama! I have a 3 foot version of this hanging in my office. Jeff
