I waited 10 days for the sun to come
out in the morning to shoot this terrace
at the Fairmont Pacific Rim Hotel.
I could have shot last week in cloudy
weather, but that would not produce
the best shot. Other than waiting for
the sun, the important things about shooting
architecture are keeping the buildings
vertical and finding a great compostion
where lines, textures, shapes and colour
all work and the balance feels right.
The right place at the right time and
a lot of patience are required.

Creating a panorama is pretty easy in Photoshop.
Make three images, vertically. Overlap them by
50%. Keep the camera level. Use a tripod if possible.
Merge the shots in Photoshop and voila: a
panorama that used to be made only by expensive
special cameras or by a lot of work in darkroom
