On my way to work this morning I took a little detour to see if I could get an early morning photo of the sun shining on the Drakensberg. I took several photos then "stitched" them together to form panoramas. I didn't get the "stitching" absolutely right, but with practise I might just. After stitching them I manipulated them further.
Click to enlarge.
Looking westward, with the sun rising behind me.The two halves don't have exactly the same exposure, the photo on the left is lighter and one can see where they join in the middle.
The same photo , now a water colour painting.
In this panorama I zoomed in to show more of the Drakensberg, about 35km from where I was standing. The N3 highway can be see running north/south in the middle.
Here the photo has become an oil painting.
