After being to this location the week before and seeing the skyline, i decided to come back and try my first pano. I arrived just before sunset and waited for the sky to go dark and the city and bridge lights to turn on. I took a few different series of shots to ensure I had a workable pano later on. Besides the stitch, not much else was adjust. A touch of vibrance, some sharpening and some slight tweaks to the exposure. A note on the sky. The change in sky was caused by a mistake, however I feel it adds to the appeal of the photo for me. I shot in AWB mistakenly for this shot and my second and third pano were a little warmer than the first. After processing I liked the effect. I did correct this later on by adjusting the white balance on the two other exposures, however I found myself drawn to this version instead.. So technically, this shot was done wrong, however I'll consider this a happy accident. Enjoy!
