Well, I did say I took one shot on the past post from this area. Not correct I took several 😉 although the previous post was the last shot for the evening, this shot was a series of 8 images taken from a slightly different angle. The final result being something large enough to get a 60 inch print from.
I found this image to be close to the most challenging so far (hardest still working on and its been months so far, I just can not get it right). The colour tone difference from right to left proven to be quite hard to merge in both PTGui and CS3. So I ended up doing it manually (what the hell was I thinking last night).
I usually try to wait for similar wave action for each frame and really do not know what I was thinking or even if I was, on the evening I took these images. In the end I am quite happy with the result and size 47 inches before resizing, but not the amount of time in post production.
Time taken in post production around 9 albums, thats CD’s to you kiddies out there, or around 90 tunes for those that use Itunes.
