This is a cross post from my other blog, which tends to be more general in topic. This image seemed to fit both.
The image is a result of the (new) A77’s “sweep panorama” mode, Adobe’s Lightroom 3 post-processing and minor work in Photoshop CS4.
Yeah, I’m still having fun with the new gear.
Shot at 16mm and 1/200 second, but past that, I can’t tell you a lot… the camera’s mode took over. I think there were between 15 and 20 frames involved in the stitching, but I didn’t really try to count. I was too busy panning with my finger on the shutter button.
The hard part (the panorama stitching) was accomplished in-camera in less than a second after the series was shot (on a Class-10 card… be prepared to wait with something slower), and the balance of the post-work was done in a couple of minutes in LR3 and CS4.
