Ok so I have never met any players of the Denver Broncos, but I regularly drive by their stadium. Sports Authority Field at Mile High or most commonly referred to as the Mile High Stadium. This Sunday was a different occasion, it was the AFC Championship Game where the Broncos hosted the New England Patriots. If you are not one too usually read the news or sports. The Denver Broncos won 26-16. I was working during the game (yes, the thing called work, the thing that pays the bills), but as soon as I got off and ran some necessary errands I ran down as quick as I could to get some photos. Though the game was over and no one was in the Stadium, thousands of people were on the streets celebrating. Silly me I did not stop to photograph some of the revelry, but I was bound and determined to photograph the Stadium with still plenty of activity going on along with the Denver skyline.
I have been big on creating panoramics and that was my goal for this scene. I create panoramics by stitching numerous vertical photos together in Photoshop to create a seemless panoramic image, than fine tune any needed adjustments such as contrast or some color corrections in Lightroom and again in Photoshop where I use some plugins from Nik Software. In this instance I created 3 separate panoramics, each one consisting of 7 vertical photos. The bottom photo ended up being my favorite. this is a 10,700 by 3000 pixel sized image, equivalent to a 27 megapixel photo.
Next up for the Broncos is the Superbowl, I won’t be able to make it to that one, but perhaps I will be in Downtown Denver getting photos of all the happy people when they win the Superbowl.
