The View from my Room...

Panorama Style!

Bedroom Window Panorama

FxMixer did a fantastic panorama tutorial a couple weeks ago. He made it simple enough that even I could understand it. So following his simple instructions (did I mention that I really appreciate keeping it simple?!?!), I set my white balance for "Sun", fired off four overlapping pictures (without a tripod - gasp!), opened them all in Photoshop and "stitched" them together. Even without a tripod, or any amount of meticulous shooting on my part, Photoshop easily stitched these together. I soooooooo wish I'd known about this little trick last month when we were at the Grand Canyon. sigh.

So, anyway, this was just my simple, quick practice image. To see some gorgeous panoramic landscapes, head over to FxMixer's blog.

Susan, I love it. I thought I had a good view from my room, lol, it's nothing like this.

I really like the color of this image. Thanks for sharing.

What a gorgeous view, Susan! Love the way you "stitched" the scene. :) Beautiful colors...so vibrant.

Don't you want to move to the burbs of Atlanta? I'd love to have you live right next door. You can come over and show me how to do cool things like this :-)

And why can't you go back and stich some Grand Canyon stuff now??

Gorgeous! The view from my room is...the back of another townhome! Woohoo! But I'm not complaining...it's a mighty fine place to lay my head.

I've read a tutorial about stitching panoramas before, but I've never tried it...maybe once there's something decent to shoot I will!
