    Hamilton, Ontario is split into two parts, one half is downtown and the other half is called "the mountain", which is really just an escarpment. Anyways, I thought I'd try to get up there and get some nice sunset shots of the city, but as it turns out, it's kinda a crappy location. It's pretty far away too, so I was kinda dissapointed. Anyways, this is what I managed to get out of it. Critique, if you could:

    A bunch of really random shots, because there wasn't much going on:

    Yeah, they're nice. It's HDR, but it doesn't look too over the top.

    Pano is nice, maybe 1/3rd stop underexposed, but it looks like the evening so whatever.

    2nd one looks overprocessed... looks like USM with too large a radius was applied, or too strong of a curve was used.

    Would be nice to slightly fill in the shadows on the girls face. Those dark shadows make it look slightly more moody than what I think you were going for.

    Last two look ok. Last one is maybe 2/3rds of a stop underexposed (looks like you were going for a darker picture, but it looks a little too dark)

    For the pano I just used photoshop CS2's "photomerge" feature. It did a pretty good job, though I had to spend alot of time tweaking the exposure of each shot/using 3 or 4 gradient masks in order to get the exposure the way I liked it and even across the shot. The second one is HDR, and yeah, it definitely looks processed.

    Thanks for the crits.

    About shooting a pano. Do I have to stay at one spot ?

    Like would I be able to move the camera, if there is something obstructing my view from behind?
