Not sure whether this is a first on EPZ, but it's a first for me.
It's 12 shots taken with a Lensbaby composer, that's 4 landscape shots bracketed 3 times, then put through PT GUI, photomatix and finally photoshop.
So it's a lensbaby-hdr-pano
it appeared as a V2 yesterday, hiding behind a more traditional shot of the dock, it got a bit of positive feedback so thought I'd give it an official airing up front
it's taken with the composer and the F5.6 aperture ring so the sweet (i.e. sharp) spot is pretty small and the blur reasonably pronounced.
On this one I kept the sweet spot central on each shot and made sure that the whole of the tower had some sharpness in each shot, so PTGui could create its control points. Hence the tower's pretty sharp whereas the rest is kinda trippy.
People have told me on more than one occasion that you can do all this in Photoshop afterwards, why bother with the hassle of the Lensbaby....
