I have finally entered the world of doing panoramas. Both shots were taken without using a tripod but the end result didn’t come out too badly. (Reminder to self – carry your tripod more often.)

Here I used a total of five pictures. Need to work on straightening the buildings a bit but overall it doesn’t look too bad. And the spot 3/4 to the right is not dust, it is a helicopter!

Here I was far too close to the building and my 50mm lens (there was a challenge sometime ago, to go out with only one lens, and use it for all your shooting. And I tried it and it is a eye opener!) just couldn’t get the entire  building in so I took three photographs and merged them.

    Where on earth are you?
    I don’t know any of those buildings!
    But they are cool pictures 😉

      They were taken from the race track looking towards Dubai.
      Spent Christmas with my two daughters who live there. The buildings are just out of this world.

    Impressive! ‘Fraid you’ve gone and damaged that tall building a bit – d’you think they’ll ever twist it straight again? 🙂

      With what they smoke in their bubblys I wonder if they even notice!
      But I am really astounded at how complex it must have been to build it. Doing a straight up and down is easy.
