Eiffel Tower Panorama

OK Kids, back in the olden times we didn’t have fancy smart phones that could take panoramic photos.  We had to do it the old fashioned way, down a mine, for 16 hours, after a 14 mile hike.

In 2005 we went to Paris and I, of course, took a photo of the Eiffel Tower.  But to get it all in frame with the cheap camera I had I had to stand about 5 miles away.   So instead I took 4 shots with the intent to stitch them together in Photoshop.   9 years later and I’ve still not done it.

I was looking through my photos and came across them and thought I’d give it ago.   Guess what?   Photoshop does all the hard work for you.  just chuck multiple photos at it and you get a perfectly stitched panoramic image.  I know where the joins are and I can’t see them.  DSCF2891-Edit


Paris Revist

I came across a blog that had some cool shots of Paris. It made me go back to my Photos and play around a bit. One I really liked was one she had of the Eiffel Tower. It’s such a well known landmark that it doesn’t need to be in focus to know what it is. The fact that it’s not the focus and the ground is, gives a little more interest.   Here are the three I liked best.
