Well since October there have been 23 new photographs added to my gallery. Some have really touched me as wonderful pieces of work and I think many of you, thanks to your faves and kind comments, will agree. I have done some panoramic photographs and they have been quite large. I have subsequently found that deviantART will not allow a photograph longer than 18000 pixels to be uploaded. In my latest trip, I decided to take that concept and instead do a very large stitch of an otherwise normal sized photograph using my newest lens, an f/1.8 50mm. The result was a 73.6 megapixel photograph and what detail! Here are the thumbs to my latest uploads and a little history behind the locations. Pilgrim StatePilgrim Psychiatric Center
is a state-run psychiatric hospital located in Brentwood, NY on Long Island. There is a very large section that has since been abandoned and left to the wayside and it echos post-apocalyptic. It is popular among urban explorers and car enthusiasts who like to do photo shoots with their cars there. So a few of us with Cobalts went over there to do a shoot on a warm, December day.
The very last photograph is a manipulation from one of the others.Panoramic
I did two panoramic photographs recently. The first is of the Tappan Zee Bridge and the original image was a stitch of 21 photographs making for a 105.2 megapixel photograph (27930 x 3768). It is all in black & white because the coloring on this drab, wintry day was quite obviously dull. There was little contrast between the bridge and the sky. The second is of Midtown Manhattan from Central Park, shooting southward. It is just the skyline, nothing special, and a stitch of 6 photographs for a 53.1 megapixel photograph (19363 x 2746). It was the first photograph to be taken with my new 50mm f/1.8D lens. I also have a single HDR photograph of Tarrytown Light, a small lighthouse just north of the Tappan Zee Bridge.New Croton Dam
The New Croton Dam
is a 106 year old dam that sits in Cortlandt, NY. It was a gorgeous day but freezing cold and super windy. Of all of the photographs I took, I only have two to share but one is actually a 12 photograph stitch that is 73.6 megapixels wide (11008 x 6686). The other shows the rainbow that was seen from a specific angle.New Website
