Palouse Panorama

I’m having such a great time going through all my images from my trip to the Palouse.  Especially the images of the rolling hills as seen by looking down from Steptoe Butte.  No matter which direction you look, you’re treated to views just like this one.

This shot is a panorama of seven vertical shots stitched together using the new panorama merge function in Lightroom CC.  I’ve also been playing with the new Dehaze function which was just released the other day.  I’m finding it to be quite useful, and applied a touch of it to this image.  It’s amazing that so much can be done now in Lightroom without having to jump over to Photoshop.  How did we live without Lightroom in the past???


Monhegan Panorama

Today’s post is a panorama of the village on Monhegan Island in Maine.  I’ve posted several images from my trip there in the fall, including this one of a small section of the village.  I had originally wanted to post this pano instead, but was having some difficulty getting it stitched together properly without some distortion.  After reading an article this weekend on panoramas, I took another crack at it and was able to remove most of the distortion that had kept this image stuck in my library.  It’s composed of 9 separate vertically-oriented shots, and looks much better when you click on it for a larger view.
