Houston Skyline Blue Hour Panorama

Houston Skyline Blue Hour Panorama

After I came up with the idea to do a 12-photo panorama using my new 80-200mm lens, it was already fully night. While I was happy with the frames (it wouldn’t be until I went home days later I actually edited/merged the photos into a panorama), I knew I wanted to return and try the same while there was still some light in the sky to illuminate the buildings. This 6-photo image [6r1c] was shot two days later. Each frame was exposed 2.5sec.
There aren’t many photos I’m proud of, but I liked the way this came out.
