The Irving Saint John Refinery

Monday, March 23rd, 2009

This is a panorama of Irving Oil’s Saint John Refinery located in Saint John, New Brunswick.  This is Canada’s largest oil refinery according to Irving.  The refinery is truly massive and took 6 images to capture this image.

The six images were shot hand-held and were stitched together in photoshop using automatic adjustments.  The resulting panorama was converted to grayscale in Lightroom and slight toning adjustments were made for contrast.

The image above is shown using Microsoft’s Seadragon technology. Scroll and pan inside the image to reveal more detail. You can see my images here

Fenced In

It seems I have run out of new photos to post today, which I’m going to attribute to the fact that it’s winter and I haven’t really been inspired to do any shooting lately (or at least nothing that I’d bother sharing here on RAWpixels).  Not to worry though, as I apparently still have a lot of interesting shots from 2008 that I can share, like this one from New York city.

This is the arch in New York City’s Washington Square park.  When I was there in June, it seemed that every landmark or tourist attraction I went to was under some form of renovation.  I think this image sums up my trip pretty well.

A rack of wine at the Mission Hill Winery in Kelowna.  Unfortunately we didn’t take any home with us, but that’s because I knew I could most likely pick some up at the LCBO (if luck is on my side).
