Panorama of the northern view from the Greek theatre atop of Taormina in Sicily.
This panorama was generated from five separate shots using the photomerge feature in Photoshop. Photomerge is great, not only does it “stitch” the images together but it corrects for exposure differences, vignetting and geometric distortion. It’s pretty clever stuff, but the results aren’t always perfect and it helps to keep the exposure the same (or very similar) for each of the shots; also, circular polarisers can sometimes create unwanted sky gradients at a wide angle, and this can be difficult to correct for when photomerging images. However, this one turned out pretty good.
I deliberately toned the image to give it an aged feel, as though from a vintage travel book; the kind published before the second world war, written by men and women of leisure who travelled the world chronicling their adventures, such as the excellent Freya Stark.
