Panoramic Trip in 25 Big Cities


Sometimes the best method of learning photography is to look inside of photo albums. This is why before even starting with theories about panoramic software and gears; Ill take you on a trip to various places. This time to big cities. Do you notice what most of them have in common? A waterscape! Human settelments are allways near water, and you know what? The Reflections of the cities always look good in photos (both day and night). The existence of waterscapes can lead to the existence of bridges, and, once again, bridges look good in photography especially as guiding lines. There is something else you can notice in all the pictures: there is a main building, most of the times taller than the rest of the buildings. The placement of this attraction point (usually center of the city) in photography is either following the rule of thirds, or, if the picture is based on symmetry, in the center of it.
To avoid summer haze effect, and to obtain a more spectacular scene, it becomes obvious that the shots taken around sunset are the best.
The last image is a panorama of the city where I currently live: Cluj-Napoca. This article can evolve into a nice city database, who knows? Feel free to add a comment with a link to a panorama of your city and other cities missing from the current list.
Note: not all images are representative for the city.

I started photography as a hobby in 2005, during college. My passion slowly became a more important part of my life since 2008. Because of using a combination of my photographic knowledge, with those of internet marketing, I like to call myself a "photomarketer".

  1. You could have placed a panorama picture from Athens or Thessaloníki, too. Beautiful places also. Anyway, these are quite nice. Reminds me of 100 places one must visit before dying. 🙂
