Norah Head Lighthouse, Central Coast, NSW


On top of the headland at Soldiers Beach looking over the coastline running down to Norah Head Lighthouse on a rain day. This one is a 14 image stitch shot in landscape at 17mm and blended manually in Photoshop.

The manual blending of this stitch was done as photomerge didnt really do the image justice with the wide angle I wanted, plus I wanted to challenge myself with developing the technique and refining it. Took some doing blending in the rock ledge on the right of the shot. Like with all of my digital panoramics all editing and blending is done to a level not so it looks good as a web jpeg but if this image is printed big everything looks in place and all highlights and shadow detail is controlled.

After blending this by hand I have more appreciation for the job Photomerge and PtGui do for us when we just click the button and let it do all the hard work.

  1. Thanks guys. Dan and Matt it took a while to do as I was doing a bit of trial and error with finding the best way to do it. Especially with making the sky even. But once I found the best way future ones wont take that long.
