Looking through all my old photographs, I noticed that I took a series of photos in portrait orientation of roughly the same thing. Then I realized that I had taken overlapping shots of Washington State’s mountains from inside a plane intending to make a panorama because the mountains were just barely peeking through the clouds. They sort of looked like islands to me, stranded in the middle of a vast sea.
I then decided that the photograph should be in black and white to showcase the textures and the cragginess of the mountain peaks. To keep my sanity, I used Photoshop’s photomerge tool and it worked quite nicely to me. If you look closely, there’s some minor imperfections but otherwise the automatic process did its job and made a panorama ready for cropping to the appropriate size.
Multiple shots taken with Canon EOS Digital Rebel XTi.
All shots recorded at the same setting shutter speed and aperture.
