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

Trinity Anglican Church, Saint John, N.B.

I took a walk around uptown Saint John New Brunswick today, as the sun peaked out of the clouds for a brief few moments.  I’ve been here for a couple of weeks on business, but this was the first time I’ve had a chance to take any photos of my surroundings.  I’m here for another 2-3 months, so there will be more to come.  I’m hoping to get out and see more of my home province and the Maritimes and the great scenery it has to offer.

I don’t do a lot of selective colouring, but I felt that this image needed some spice.  Let me know what you think.

P.S. That is a huge snow bank in front of the church.  This city has had a huge amount of snow this winter!
P.P.S. The title has been changed from “St Andrew & St David Church” to the proper name of “Trinity Anglican Church”
