I Love Her Wide Horizons - Somewhere Near Oberon (60 Exposure HDR Pano) - The HDR Experience by 


Just back from wandering country roads near Oberon to the west of Sydney in the Central Tablelands, the country side is stunning, this vista include a old shearing shed.

Technique: 60 bracketted exposures, shot in 12 segments of 5 exposures shot in landscape orientation. The first segment of 5 exposures was tonemapped in Photomatix to create one 45mb tiff file. This process was repeated another 11 times to create a total of 12 × 45mb tiff files. These 12 tiff files were then merged in Photoshop elements 9.0 to form 1 × 1.4gb panoramic tiff file, after slight modification, the file was then saved and converted to a jpeg

Yes It’s A Lot Of Work , and when i hit process I think my PC said are you kidding ?

Equipment: Nikon D300, Nikon 18-70mm lens
