Lens-Artists Challenge #165 – Going Wide

A panoramic view of one of the walks at Hole Park in Rolvenden, Kent.

Camera Settings

Camera: Canon EOS 70D
Lens: Canon EF-S18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS II
/Number: f/7.1
ISO: 100

Focal Distance: 18 mm
Shutter Speed: 1/160 sec
Software: Adobe Lightroom Classic, Photoshop and Topaz Studio 2
Photographer: Bren Ryan

The above image was created by photographing the landscape with 5 different images and then doing a panoramic merge from Lightroom into Photoshop. Once merged in Photoshop, I added two different sky replacements in Photoshop, and then sent the image to Topaz Studio 2 for an impressionistic view.

Once I saved the image, it was automatically transferred back in Lightroom, where I processed the image further, using gradient and radial filters.

    1. Thank you xx… What I like about doing panos in Photoshop is that you can use the content aware setting to fill in the blank edges.
