Egret Flight Sequence - Pano Experiment
Lens: DA* 300mm F4 Camera: K7 Photo Location: Green Cay Wetlands, Boynton Beach, Florida ISO: 400 Shutter Speed: 1/1000s Aperture: F8

While following a Snowy Egret fishing for minnows I captured a number of flight sequences. Out of curiosity I decided to try stitching them into a panorama in Photoshop CS4. I tried three sequences and to my surprise one of them worked.

The pano is made up of five images taken just before and after take off.

I started with DNG Raw images, developed all identically in Camera Raw, stitched, cropped and adjusted in CS4.

What do you think?

Thats a helluva good idea and great execution! I have hundreds of egets shot in burst or high-speed but never thought of sequencing like that. Just a really cool pic for us BIFers. Great work.
