Philadelphia Union vs Rochester Rhinos_Panoramic
Taken during the Union's U.S. Open Cup match against the Rochester Rhinos. Although there wasn't much of a crowd it was an entertaining match with the Union winning 3-0 to get into the next round. During the first half a big storm rolled in which brought the game to a stop for 30mins due to the threat of lightning. I knew I wanted a nice wide view of PPL Park with the storm looming overhead so I moved to the back corner and snapped 6 shots handheld with my camera oriented vertically. I boosted the exposure for each shot in Capture NX2 and saved them as TIFF's so that I could merge them together in Photoshop. I then brought it back into Capture NX2 to make my final adjustments.
