Sunrise at the Lighthouse
Canon 24-105L,32mm, f/16, (1/13, 0.3, 1.3) sec, ISO 100
This panoramic image was created from 3 HDR images, each processed from 3 images captured 2 stops apart (9 images total). After some initial work in Lightroom 4, each HDR image was processed with HDR Efex Pro 2. The 3 HDR images were then sent from Lightroom into CS5 and merged using Photomerge. The panoramic image was then taken back into Lightroom 4 for additional editing.

Thank you, Gary. Thank you, Art. I captured these back in September, but never took the time to process them until yesterday because I was uncertain how well they would blend. The result surprised me.

Great job with the editing. Nice Image. Have thought HDR image editing might be something fun to experiment with.

Thank you, Carla, Beth and Bonnie. I've worked on my HDR techniques for a while now (and yes, Beth it is fun to experiment with, and a variety of results are possible), trying to get a natural looking image, but this is one of my first as a panorama. The capabilities of today's programs are amazing.
