First Panorama

I wanted to shoot a panorama of the city on a very cold day to capture all of the smoke plumes and the inversion layer, but the sun was far too strong for me to shoot to the south. Instead I shot a panorama from the GI roof looking north, to the hills:

1/125 sec
ISO 80
40mm lens (~60mm equivalent)

There was very little color in the scene, so I converted it to black and white, which also helped photoshop deal with some differences in shading a little better. My silly mistake was to shoot this with my camera oriented normally. If I'd turned it on it's side, this would have a much more sensible aspect ratio. Nothing special as a panorama, but I did learn how to do it.
