On top of the city (reshoot)

EDIT: Photo replaced with a much improved reshoot.

 

I said I was going to try again, and I meant it! This is a much more refined attempt from this very same location. I may get myself up there again, but I have a feeling this is it for me and that particular little perch on that roof.

 

I still had some major problems with parallax(sp?) error due to not having a panoramic tripod head that I can't afford... so I had to do some serious patchwork in PS. But the exposure was slightly better this time and the position of the moon allowed a little more light to bounce off of those dark rooftops.

 

Overall I think this one turned out better- especially with some friends on deck this time. :)

I was standing on a 4'x4' platform on top of a roof deck stairwell, and the cheap tripod was wobbly as were my legs increasingly!

 

At a glance, it reminds me of a planet about to explode - movie style - with the glowing magma exposing itself between the cracks in the crust.
