Default Opening Day

Play Ball!

Panorama stitch from four shots with the Panasonic 20mm--would have been a great occasion for the 918 or even 714. For some reason the stitching software lost some of the cloud highlights from my RAWs (probably user error), but the details in this shot are incredible. I wish I could publish it full size so you could see the cars parked on the top of the garage across the river.

Yes, we lost. And despite how it looks like a beautiful day. It was absolutely FREEZING. Coldest (day) game I've ever been to.

Wow, this is a great shot. Too bad you didn't do it when the stadium was full, but I'm guessing the weather and lighting wasn't as good as it was right then. I remember the light seemed to be perfect around noon, but gametime probably not as bright.

Also, my real seat was way out in the outfield. But yeah, if the house were still filled it would look better.

Thanks guys.

Still going though some of the shots of the game. The 45-200 wasn't that bad for some game shots considering I was pretty far away from the action.

Very nice, I really like the bridge in the background, adds to the scene.

Yeah, the park is truly a wonder of architecture, perfectly in place with the great "fourth wall" of the city at just the right angle to the field.

The bridge has become an extension of the park of sorts on game days. Renamed the "Roberto Clemente Bridge," the city closes it to traffic on game days and becomes a gateway between parking in the city and the field on the North Side.

Pittsburgh, Cincinnati, Philadelphia... They all got it right in replacing those ugly things they built in the late 60's/early 70's. my daugter drove me by the stadium complex in Philly while I was up there, but the one in Pittsburgh is the best of them all.
