For the frame width you see here, a horizontal shot would have required a fairly wide angle lens. The wide angle lens would have diminished the prominence of the background (making it appear smaller and more distant). Using a series of vertical shots at 110 mm helps to draw the background mountains up in the photo. The series then enables me to establish a more panoramic view with the background pulled in. When comparing the stitched verticals to a single horizontal of the same scene, I find the net effect in this case is not as pronounced as in the photo entitled "Night Transit". In that photo the stitched verticals gave me both the width, depth and the prominence of the midtown skyline - more like a medium format image. Of course in that photo the subway trains are entirely within one vertical frame
