I'm sure some of you recognized the bay of Etretat, France. This is becoming one of my favourite shooting place
For that challenge, I decided to photography an overview of the bay, so I spent my day here, in order to take photos from morning to night.
I never created panoramas so far, so this was an interesting first. It is composed by several overlapping vertical shots, taken at various moment of the day. Stitching everything automatically did not work well with the software I tried, mainly due to color and exposure differences. I ended with creating 3 main parts with such software, and then stitched these 3 parts manually in Photoshop:
- 5 shots compose the night side
- 4 shots compose the sunset part
- 3 shots compose the day part
The moon is the one that really was in the sky that night (although I moved it more to the left when compared to its original location), as well as the boats (they were there in the morning).
Even if the result is not extremely creative, I really enjoyed playing with these techniques, gives me new tools for future creations
