Fenway Park Panoramic

Ahhh…the unofficial start of summer is here…kicks off every year around Memorial Day.  This year I impulsively booked a trip to  a city that I have always wanted to visit – Boston.  JetBlue was offering a deal I could not refuse!

It wasn’t going to be a trip to Boston without a trip to the oldest Major League ballpark in the country – Fenway Park.  Unfortunately, the Red Sox were playing in Detroit, but I did get to tour the ballpark.  I love baseball games and being in a stadium like this is just awesome.  As I was sitting there taking this place in, I heard this older lady tell her husband, “Can’t you take one of those panoramic photos!?”  And  the little light bulb went off…so here is a panoramic view of Fenway Park (I don’t know why I don’t think of taking more panaramics more often).  Higher res version is here.

I should point out my autofocus on my Tamron 17-50mm was not working at all, so I shot this using manual focus (I don’t recommend keeping your sunglasses on, as I did for many of my shots, because it doesn’t make for the crispest of photos :/).  I also auto-bracketed my exposure (-1,0,+1), combined the photos and then stitched them together in Photoshop.  I probably could have angled my camera down more, but being that this is a guided tour, you’ve gotta move along quite quickly.
