Very pleasing photograph: just goes to show how strong good old b/w can be in the right hands and with a good subject.

To be truthful - and why not? - thatīs one of the few times that I have thought there might be something in stitching; more accurately, that it might be time I pulled my head out of the hood and tried it myself.

Good to see.

Well done, Bernard.  Looks like the ol' D3 might have a few usable shutter actuations left...

Bernard, tell me how you took the shot, how many frames, dealing with moving cars??

I've been using CS3, this is very nice,

That must have been 5 or 6 shots.

Dealing with moving objects is a mix of shooting timing and usage of the layered output of PTgui, with some hand made masking.

There are cases without elegant solution, but this one worked out nicely.

The main problem was dealing with the rain though.

To deal with the rain you should have a Sherpa holding a big umbrella over you and your gear (high enough so the umbrella doesn't show in the picture).  

Nice photo, even though it isn't in the mountains.

Urban mountains.

Very nice tonality. What time of the day was this?

Ah, the mean streets of Shibuya (not so mean, more glitsy), I really like the tonal quality of the image. Makes me think back to when I used to travel there.

If you ever do toss out your D3, please toss it in my direction!

I know this is an old thread, but Bernard, I would like to make a suggestion/request.

Your write-ups are well thought out. I personally would find it very interesting if you would write up your workflow. It's apparent you are out there and have mastered the techniques of combining  stitching, hdr and focus stacking, I sense occasionally on the same image.

Would be really interesting to follow along on a ride how you approach a subject and plan and execute an image.
