So this was a bit of a challenge, mostly because I had to stitch together two different series of photos to help fill up the sky enough to get a level pano. Also, I’ve never needed to mask-out so many photos before. But this was a time-series. One of the things I noticed was that the exposure around the stitches looks odd. Also, the exposure at the east end and the south end was wildly different. I had to level it out with a giant lateral fade in Gimp to get the exposure much closer to even.
Let me know what you think!
This was a beautiful morning. I original sky color was not as contrasty as I would have liked, but you’ll see other panos from this morning pretty soon. I like this darker, ruddier version.
For the first time in 9 years I decided to take my camera to the after-party. I found a lot of happy people. If you like the picture enough, let me know. None of these have been through post, so I could clean up your portrait a bit. Great to see you all there! I look forward to 2014!

Jesse was apparently quite the champ during his first violin recital. My beautiful wife is so thoughtful, she cooked him a violin themed meat pie in honor of his first recital!
