Recently, Sue and I spent some time camping at one of her favorite places, Waldo Lake. It’s a lovely part of Oregon, and we had a few beautiful days roaming around the lake. On this morning, the lake was beautiful and calm, with a gorgeous sky, albeit one with many contrails from the planes overhead–we can’t seem to miss that.
This two-image panorama was stitched in Lightroom CC and processed in black and white in the new ON1 Photo 10 app, which is coming soon. (Click on the images to see them larger.)
The color version is below. The panorama was exported at 6,000 pixels wide, but the iPhone shots are the originals. What’s interesting to me when I look at them is how painterly the leaves on the trees are. from a distance, the image looks very sharp. Close up, however, the leaves aren’t that at all. I don’t think this makes the image any less good; it’s just an interesting perspective.

beautiful Rick. Amazing clarity.
Great, Rick. Love the B/W.
Note to self: must do more B/W. And panos.
Beautiful photo Rick! I’ve never spent time there, but it’s now on the list!
Pano! Love it. Such a special place.
What a scene Rick. Beautiful in B+W. How was the original?
Mike, I’ve included both original iPhone shots as well as the first color pano. That and a little extra commentary about the painterly aspect of the images.
