No Wide Angle Lens? No Problem!

As you may have seen from my previous post of Wally Backlit, this morning was amazing. There was a lit hazy mist in the valleys but otherwise almost cloud free skies, of course, this is the Algarve!

When I got to the top of Eagle Ridge, the view was stunning, but I only had my AF-S 80-400mm lens. So, I took 23 separate images with the camera oriented in vertical and then merged them all together in Photoshop.

The resulting image was huge! Give or take, due to images being overlapped in the merge process, it would be around 1000 Megapixels! The output TIFF file from Photoshop back to Lightroom is over 2.5gb! The final JPEG export was over 200mb, so I had to resize it a little for upload to Flickr. This image on Flickr is 20000 x 3333 pixels! The great thing is, Pano-stitching in Photoshop is so powerful that all 23 shots where taken handheld and it still merges them perfectly.

My local village of São Marcos da Serra is just visible above the right on the far right of the image.
