2013-10-06 Flight of the Heron [panorama]

So this was a bit of a challenge, mostly because I had to stitch together two different series of photos to help fill up the sky enough to get a level pano. Also, I’ve never needed to mask-out so many photos before. But this was a time-series. One of the things I noticed was that the exposure around the stitches looks odd. Also, the exposure at the east end and the south end was wildly different. I had to level it out with a giant lateral fade in Gimp to get the exposure much closer to even.

Samish Bay Log

This is an attempt at a macro-panorama. I found an unexpected bit of color in the enhancement which gives it a bit of a wild edge. I might post a b+w version, let me know if you’d like to see it.Image

Log, Samish Island

This was an early morning shot from Samish Island. I like the “inverted” lighting from the low sun angle. I was impressed that I could get the depth of field just on the log and the trees in the background were out focusing range.

While I was on Samish Island, I was present for some very interesting conversations about bicycling. I found a few people there that had done quite a bit of biking, from Alaska and other parts of the nation. I have found that talking about cycling is so much more fun than talking about computers and software.
