Many have asked about the Header image above, which I named 'Eerie Genny'. It was originally shot with film [taken on the shore of the Genesee River near the Univ. of Rochester]. During the darkroom development, I flashed a light above the tray. The process, known as 'solarization', produces eerie, ghostlike effects; some have mistaken this image as an infra-red photo. Some 35+ years later, I scanned and digitized the print, and did a little modern day editing, and, voila.

Rochester Skyline as Seen From Cobbs Hill [Orange You Glad It’s Friday] [Sky Watch Friday]

    Off and on I’ve waxed enthusiastic about generating panoramas. For those who can’t generate such images right in your camera, there are two ways of producing them. The first and most direct method is simply by judicious cropping. Depending on the composition you start with, you can easily obtain an aspect ratio of 5:1 and retain the essentials; but, some thought must be given during shooting of the original scene you were interested in. The second method is taking [multiple] overlapping images and ‘stitching’ them together using some appropriate app. The two images below were produced by cropping alone.
  The highest point in the Rochester, NY is in Cobbs Hill Park, where there is a clearing giving a nice view of the city skyline. It is a favorite spot for photographers, as you might well imagine.These were shot on different days.
