Stockholm panorama by kaffemugg Stockholm panorama by kaffemugg
So I decided to make a panorama of the central parts of Stockholm, Sweden. Stockholm City Hall can be seen in the far right, the beautiful Riddarfjärden in the middle, and Södermalm on the left side.

It ended up being a pretty lengthy shoot. I took a bunch of other shots the same night, and spent about two hours on the spot, having my feet go numb from the cold. A bunch of tourists as well as fellow Stockholmers came and took their pictures as well, asking me to shoot so they could all be in the frame, with this beautiful view of Stockholm in the background.

This is a 73 megapixel shot, made out of 18 separate images. I moved my camera across the horizon to take six shots with three exposures each. After long hours and dealing with some pretty huge files in post, this is what I ended up with. Any kind of feedback is much appreciated. Enjoy!

Nice panorama! What I like about this photo is the muted colour tones and the mysterious and moody atmosphere. As for the critique, I do think the bright lights in the foreground to the right take too much attention from the viewer. And since it is not an essential motive in the photo, I would have darkened that area a little bit. Also, it is a shame that the City Hall is somewhat obscured behind the construction crane. But I understand that it is not easy to find a perfect look-out of Stockholm. I would love to see you do another panorama and think about what the main motives are in the picture and how you position them in the frame , maybe if you wait till it's a little bit warmer outside your feet would be grateful. At last, I know I mention some critique, but that is just because you were asking for feedback. I hope they can help you and I do think it is a great photo! :)
