“Few things are brought to a successful issue by impetuous desire, but most by calm and prudent forethought.“
Greek Historian and author 460 BC – c. 395 BC
Evening light bathing the fields flanking the Avon valley in the South Hams of Devon – whilst hail laden thunder clouds roll across the Dartmoor plateau in the distance. Loddiswell is the village in the near distance.
Pentax 18-55mm SMC/ DAL lens
Rotational pseudo-HDR panoramic stitch of 15 images (in portrait format)
Each frame at:
Focal length = 55mm
Matrix metering pattern & RAW format
Each pseudo-HDR frame was created by Split-RAW processing to create 3 TIFF files at -2, 0, +2ev equivalents and processed using Photomatix Pro 3.26
Panoramic rotational stitching was done using Microsoft Research Image Composite Editor (ICE).
Finishing touches for colour refinement/ curves/ high-pass sharpening, etc. was done in Adobe Photoshop 6.0
