Sunset from the Longest Day

Yesterday marked the summer solstice, which is both the first day of summer and the longest day of the year. Zach and I went up into the Berkeley Hills by the Lawrence Hall of Science to watch the sunset with the Japanese student who just moved into the room across the hall from us and will be here for a couple months as he attends a Kaplan English course. The panoramic shot below was taken at 8:35pm. Click on the image for the full experience.

This is a panorama I took from the top of the dome. Clicking on the above image should prompt you to install the required Silverlight plugin if you don’t already have it, but just in case here are installation links:

Stitched together in Photoshop and exported using HD View and Deep Zoom and Silverlight.

I think the image could be sharper, but I don’t think it’s too bad for my first panoramic HDR effort. I also didn’t take the time to fix the weird darkening issues in the sky for the middle two photos. I used three exposures each to create the four HDR shots I then stitched together in Photoshop and exported using HD View and Deep Zoom and Silverlight.

Day 87: Shopping Center Panorama

I shot this for an article about all the stores here that are closing due to the economic downturn. It ran along the top of the front page of this week’s paper.

This is a 3-shot panorama I took hand-held and stitched together in Photoshop for yesterday’s issue of my school’s newspaper.
