Shooting a panorama was not on the checklist for the evening. The computer I am working on can barely handle Photoshop (and its rather easy-to-use stitching functionality) or the other popular stitching app I have (PTGui). Yet, standing on the road next to Coit Tower and positioned just so we would not get nudged by the occasional passing car, this view was too beautiful to pass up.

So while this is not the cleanest or best possible 3-image panorama stitch, I was able to use Hugin and rather quickly process this cityscape.
