Grand Central Terminal Panorama

Seems like every time I catch up with my photog friend Ron Hiner I have to borrow his 24 PCE lens. This amazing lens allows you to tilt and shift the lens mechanism from the focal plane of the sensor. It’s most commonly used in architectural photography to “straighten” vertical lines (normal lens’ bow inwards do to the curvature of the lens). It also makes a great pano lens because you can set your tripod and then “shift” the lens on its vertical axis across a scene… viola’ instant panorama.

Stood at the end of Grand Central Terminal in the direct center of the main lobby… wanted to make sure the image would be centered nicely. Snapped three shots and stitched them in CS3. Used Silver Efex Pro to convert to black and white (why? GCT is a timeless space… felt the B&W would give it this quality) Pretty straight forward. Love the architecture of this magnificent place.
