    What did you use to put this together? Does it have an option to smooth the light to correct for your exposure differences?

    The picture looks to have promise (despite its tiny size), but those frames on the right with the light differences are distracting.

    I used CS3 I didn't change any settings. I think I was told I should hold the AE button for all the shots. I didn't do that this time. There might be something in the program to help with this. I will try it again and check.
    Thanks

    Yeah locking the exposure would help. You can adjust the exposure of the raw files before you merge them though.

    CS3 can only compensate so much. So it's best to probably keep it within one or two stops (I'm guessing). It does look nice though (but yeah, a bit small )

    Lightbulb Obstruction elimination

    I have to admit, Frank ... you have made this one the longest project shots I have ever witnessed. I thought my two
    months at the zoo was bad ... LOL

    Okay, I see the billboard and my suggestion for taking care of that, is to take SIX images, all at the same exposure
    (please do not forget this part), two per each tripod shooting position (1, 1a & 1b) about twenty-feet to the left and
    perhaps fifty-feet to the right of your original position (However far it will be to allow you to completely capture what
    is being blocked by the billboard. You be the judge!).

    Then, at home, use Photomerge to literally edit the billboard out of the panoramic image. I did it with that "catch/reception"
    shot, at the football game, a few weeks back, if you recall. Blending the two images to create a flow.

    The distances are so great, you should be able to successfully get a solid merge ... and omitting the darn billboard by
    "cropping it out" BEFORE you make Photomerge.

    Also, I am still wondering what is still further to the right in the image. Is there some kind of additional obstruction (like the
    sign or another building?) you do not include in the photograph?

    Remember: It is usually the GLASS, not the camera (except for moving to Full Frame), that gives you the most improvement in your photography.

    Don, you are too funny. I am lucky this is close by. Can you imagine me having to hope a plane for this.LOL To the right is the bridge and the road. That is the Bay you see. the ocean is to the left and over another bridge. I will have to send you prints when and if I ever get this right for all the work you are doing. You will own half the copyright of this one.LOL
    Thanks Frank

    Well, let's face it ... ALL I can see is your "finished" product, each time you post it. You have never actually posted images
    of the area you are working from or the entire surrounding area, so I have to guess at what you are working with and offer
    ideas as you make information available. "If you were here, you would see ..." does not really offer a reasonable method to
    critique the way you are shooting. You need to describe it .. and using photographs saves a lot of typing.

    Anyway, as for any shot, it is all in the framing ... and that, my friend, is your biggest battle with this compostion. You need
    to be able to edit the horizon and do some clever removal. You have to use technique to do it and since you have the luxury
    of changing your vantage point from side to side (it is important to maintain the same camera height, if possible), with this
    image ... you can use a pseudo-3D technique (somewhat stereoscopic in nature) to eliminate (blind out) the problem areas.

    As for the shooting site, I suppose I could try and get a GOOGLE satellite map ... if I just knew where to look (geographical
    coordinates).

    Heck, when this is all over with, we all may learn sumptin'! LOL "Snap shots" are easy, photographs require some work.

    Heck, copy this image and put a big red dot on the location, with either MS Paint or Photoshop!
