    Stitched PANO 10

    A couple from trips out this month. Both were shot hand held in RAW and adjusted in ACR before stitching in Photoshop. I am finding that with careful panning and framing hand held the Photoshop software can easily manage stitching. The development...

    Another last minute shot for this week's blog. I saw this old stone shed and it's wall and thought the colour contrast of the gate set it off. As always, comments welcome.
