A New York Minute
The Fuji X10 has one of these cool motion panorama modes as I did with Grand Central station below.
I really like capturing this "slice of life" in Times Square. People just being themselves and enjoying this minute in NY.
When people are moving through the scene, it really creates havoc with the image, causing ghost images, half people and so forth. So, I took 5 people from another sweep and cut them out, moved and positioned them over this image. It required a lot of masking and then fine cloning to make a decent blended image. I really like the colors right out of the camera. It also captured white balance well. Enjoy, Jeff
