Thought I would post something a little different as we are all I guess used to seeing finished or near finished images posted so I thought here goes lets show the scars, warts and all.
Below is a series of images merged to create one Panoramic image. Both images are straight from DPP with colors and saturation set in the camera. I like to work this way and have been told many times why do I bother, all I can say is it works for me and if I want to process further in CS3 raw I can I just open the tiff in Camera raw. I still have all the controls I would if I went straight through camera raw with the raw image just now I spend less time in the digital darkroom.
Ok so first image is what the full scene I would like it to be and second is what I have managed to save so far from the collection of images. As you can see the first merge has an issue with the horizon and mountain in the background and try as I might in both PTGui and CS3 they will not merge these perfectly. I could if skills where a little better clone and work something, but not there yet, still working on that.
So you have 2 images of a sunset down the road from Lahaina that I spent more time with the camera just sitting on the tripod and me just looking in awe than actually shooting (sometimes I feel I just have to do that) I stood there for a while conversing with a local family on how stunning the sunset was to which their response was, “its gets a lot nicer than tonight”. I gotta move to Maui 🙂
Enough chatter on to the pics 😉 Oh yeah the first image has spelling mistake, who’s reading the image anyway?
