I’ve been inspired recently by a fellow blogger by the name of Don Charisma. He does a lot of great panorama shots and it made me want to shoot some more and have a second look at some of the previous ones I’ve tried. This is a reworking of one my panorama attempts from 2012. This time, it was stitched with Microsoft ICE from 12 vertical orientation photos, enhanced a bit with Gimp. The end result turned out pretty good, with a final image size of 13530×4510 pixels. I really wanted to use some HDR on it, so I saved 2 sets of the images at different exposure values, but not one of my stitching programs would give me the same size final image. Somehow they all joined the lighter set and the darker set differently so that it was pretty much impossible to line them up properly. So in the end I just had to pick one and do some simple brightness/contract adjustments.
If you enjoy my photographs please consider making a purchase. All of the proceeds from the sale will go directly to help support our friends volunteering at the Seed of Hope in South Africa which is a great organization really making a difference in the community. Every little bit makes a difference, even a small digital download for your desktop!
