This is a 2x5 panoramic shot of Victoria's Inner Harbour, spanning from the Undersea Gardens on the left, to the Fairmont Empress Hotel on the right. You can see the Johnson Street bridge in the centre background.
This set of 10 exposures was taken with my Nikon D600 and 50mm lens.
I dropped exposure compensation for the leftmost and rightmost images, as they had a lot more lights than the middle frames. I spent an hour or so in Lightroom editing exposure and colour settings in my single image of the Undersea Gardens. Then I copied those settings and applied them to the entire set of 10 exposures at once. I had to compensate each frame slightly to get its exposure under control, then I exported the whole stack from Lightroom and loaded them into Hugin.
I experimented with a few different projections with this panorama, testing them out in the Quick Preview window until I found one that I liked. This panorama is rendered using the Mercator projection, but I also tried Architectural and Cylindrical, both which provided pretty good results. This projection incurred the least repair work, only in the upper right hand sky. Photoshop's content aware fill took care of that easily.
