I’ve come to believe that the only way to truly get a sense of the spectacular nature of Vasquez Rocks Natural Area, without actually experiencing it for yourself, is to show it in panorama. I took a lot of detail shots during last night’s sunset too. I like a few of them, but the finished results that I end up liking the best are the ones that required the most work, the panoramas.
The individual RAW shots that make up each panorama are first processed through Adobe Lightroom, exported into 16 bit TIFF files, then stitched together in Adobe Photoshop, globally edited in Lightroom again, then brought back into Photoshop for light adjustment using luminosity masking and then resized for display on screen. I think it’s worth the effort. I hope you do as well.
