KC skyline and Northtown from Water Works Park. This image is made up of 15 shots... five each to create three and then the three into one panorama. Nikon D850, Nikon 70-200mm lens at 70mm. ISO 800, F5.6. The shots below have similar data.
Above shot was taken with the 70-200mm lens and the 1.4x tele-extender making it an effective 360mm lens.
A beautiful day must not be wasted. Took a couple of hours to venture out in Northeast (big surprise ). With the help of Christopher Leitch, Historic House Director, Kansas City Museum, I ascended to vantage points to capitalize on the beautiful day, flowering trees and wonderful clouds. Above is a 180 degree panorama taken from the balcony just above the front entrance to the Museum. East is left and west is right, south straight ahead. Six images stitched together in Photoshop.
Below, same vantage point ... vertical looking down on the entrance walk and main gate. The shot below, taken from the roof, shows the downtown skyline... the view from up top is the best in the city in my never to be humble opinion. Foreground of the image includes Kessler Park and part of Reservoir Hill... the light green... Below, from the roof top... looking south.... Gladstone Boulevard curves around in front of the mansion. Tomorrow more of the same... only different..... Many thanks to Christopher for his time and wealth of information that he provides about this grand old building.
Views from the west side of Corinthian Hall overlooking Goose Neck and the Cliff Drive Scenic Byway. First image looks primarily west with Gladstone Boulevard on the left and the east bottoms on the right. Skyline is left of center. Second image looks south with the bottoms on the right and Corinthian Hall on the left. Used high dynamic range in these. Each shot is composed of five shots which in turn are composed of five shots and then converted using Photomatix and stitched together with Photoshop. It sounds more complicated than it is... it just takes time.
