Nothing succeeds like success (especially when you have a handy web designer to help you get there).

When we were out at Roundrock about two weeks ago, I made my first attempt at capturing images to blend into a panoramic view of the lake. So since this is my first attempt, go easy on the critical comments.
What can I tell you about these shots? Well, I took them all at the same time, within seconds of each other. I can’t account for why the photos comprising the center have such different light and color about them, but there you go. I stitched these together using Photoshop Elements, which I received as a gift from my darling children.
The dam is not nearly as curved as this blended image implies, of course. I could have corrected for perspective, but it made a weird, half-moon shaped image that I didn’t much like. Still, you certainly get a bit of an idea of what the lake looks like from the center of the dam.
Having done this, I’m wondering now what else I might try to take panoramic from Roundrock. Perhaps something in a smaller scale, like the view from the shelter or the area of our new campsite. Or the pond, maybe. Okay, this is going to be fun.
This one is five shots stitched together, and I think some of the detail is lost given the width that is necessary and the constraints of the display window. I may try a few with fewer pix, but we’ll see about that.
(How many trucks can you count in the photo, as Walter would say?)
