Incredible Vertical Panoramas of New York Churches

Throughout time, some of the most magnificent architectural marvels have been in the form of churches, basilicas, or cathedrals. You may assume that these gorgeous photos were taken in Europe, where many of the world’s famous churches are located, but you’d then be surprised to find out that they were taken in New York by photographer Richard Silver.

“As someone who has traveled all over the world sometimes you forget how much New York has to offer to a photographer,” says Richard Silver. “I am always trying to find new and different ways to photograph this city. This is my newest renditions of New York in photographs.

“After figuring out what I was looking to accomplish I did end up changing the output a few times but am very happy with these results. These are done using the Panorama mode in Photoshop. Each photo is about 6-10 photos stitched together to make the panorama. Shooting from the pew to the exit door and back again making sure I get the shot the 2nd time if there is something not good from the 1st one. I use a tripod in most shots but (too) many churches do not allow tripod usage.”
