Minneapolis and the Swooping 3rd Ave Bridge

Here are three different crops of the same image of downtown Minneapolis and the Third Ave Bridge at sunset.  The full resolution image is actually a panorama made of eight 36 megapixel images from the Nikon D800, which gives the final image 190 million pixels.  The detail out of this camera is stunning.  I could enlarge that bottom image up to 15 feet wide, and it would still look very nice up close (I’ve enlarged a 12 mega-pixel image to 17 feet wide before, so I’d say this one could easily cover a wall).  I included a 100% crop of the 225 S. Sixth building below to show the detail.
