After enjoying a delicious meal at Fogo de Chao we walked around the Inner Harbor for a little bit. During the walk I noticed a large flag on a hill that was pretty illuminated and I thought it at first it was Fort McHenry (turns out it wasn't, as that is located much farther to the east), so I drove around the Inner Harbor to try to find the location. I drove past the hill and pulled into a small parking area, which turns out led directly to the water front and made for such a good vantage point that I didn't even bother trying to get up to the hill at all. I think this was a series of 5 shots that Photomerge used to create the scene (I am not 100% positive because I actually did the first processing of the shot two nights ago, and worked on it yesterday to get ready for posting it today).
I am sure there are other areas and views that are better overall in Baltimore, but with the results after processing and the vantage point, I think this makes for a very good photo overall.
I used Topaz Labs InFocus product to help "sharpen" the image a bit, in some areas the product is very good, while in others it is a bit lacking (sometimes it tries to sharpen large areas such as the night sky for no apparent reason). But I think it enhanced the quality of this photo so I used it on top of my other processing tools. I hope you enjoy it! (Once again, I know it bleeds a little into the next column. I think I am going to do that for all of my panoramic shots I post.)
