    I'm curious as to how to do these Panoramas. Do you set it on a tripod, and let it swing horizontally?

    you mean like during a single exposure? :rofl:


    No. you set it on a tripod, set up your shot so you get the same exposure in all images (you'll have to use manual mode so they're all the same.) Take your shot, pan allowing some overlap, repeat until you've shot everything you were hoping to get in the shot.

    In PS you can either try doing it working with individual layers (which sucks) or go to (iirc) image>automate>photomerge, and select all the files that are to be included in the panoramic. Crop the edges, and you're done.

    I used my 70-200 at 70mm. And actually i didnt use a tripod, too much effort to lug one around.

    I think it looks great. If i was processing it, the only thing I'd change is the statues. The bases are brighter than the statues themselves (especially the center one). I'd burn the bases (maybe the steps too) and dodge the statues themselves to make them stand out a bit more.

    I pretty much processed the raws in photoshop then used the automated photomerge, fixed bits of the sky, and resized it to post here.

    i will definitely give what youre saying a shot before i print it.
