Painted Desert- Petrified Forest National Park – Panorama

The image here is of the Painted Desert in the Petrified Forest National Park in northeast Arizona.  It is very difficult to capture the wide open spaces of the American West with a camera.  One way to overcome this is to shoot a panorama, taking multiple exposures and then combining them in software.  This used to be a very time consuming and tedious process taking special equipment to make the images line up.  Using new software, making panoramas is just a simple matter of taking multiple shots, overlapping the edges by about 25%  and then let the software do it’s magic.  This image is made of 27 individual shots taken in a portrait orientation and then combined in Photoshop CS3.
