The story behind the image
I love panorama photos, i.e. photos that have been stichted together from multiple individual shots.
This is one of my all-time favorites – the tiny harbour of Digby in Nova Scotia on a beautiful, sunny morning. I nailed the exposure in manual mode and also deactivated the autofocus. Then I took a couple of consecutive shots, from left to right.
Back home, I developed each Photo with Lightroom and composed the final panorama image in Photoshop, carefully merging the separate images and removing any visible overlaps.
The result: an image that is almost 13,700 pixels wide. This is good for a 1.15 Meter wide high-resolution print, i.e. when printed at 300 dpi. Even in 2022, this is very good. This size enables me to zoom into the high-res photo and enjoy the whole scenery. Lovely.
