Picture of the Week: Dallas Sunset Panorama

So I’m back in Dallas after a whirlwind trip to Europe where I took some good pictures in Slovenia and Austria, went to one of the best lounges in the world, and flew home in Lufthansa First Class (check out those articles if you haven’t already seen them).  The sunsets in Dallas have been great lately and I wanted to capture one for this week’s picture of the week.  At the same time I wanted to use my new 70-200mm lens and see how it would do in a cityscape situation (full review of the Sony GM 70-200mm lens).  I snapped quite a few pictures and then put them together in Photoshop for a pretty wonderful panorama of the Dallas skyline from my new favorite sunset spot, enjoy this week’s Picture of the Week!

For the photographers: This was a 8-shot panorama stitched together in photoshop.  I shot in manual mode (a must if you want to stitch together later) with my Sony a7rII and Sony 70-200mm GM at 83mm, 1/40s exposure, ISO 100, and f2.8 (I wanted to test how sharp the new lens could be at f2.8).  It was a relatively easy stitch in Photoshop and the full res file ended up being about 40 inches across!

  1. Wondering if this was a single row vertical or double row horizontal or how the 8 images were configured. Tripod or just hand held?

    • Hi Paul, it was a single-row vertical pano.

      • Thank You. Nice job with a nice lens-camera combo. Still lugging my full frame stuff and tripod around Puerto Vallarta for a few more weeks.
