Nice one Damien!

How many images were used in total?

Very nice.

What have you stitched it with? And do you like the not-so-seamless look? It gives it an artistic look Eye-wink

I've used Hugin (yes, another free Linux thingo - also available on Windoze mind) that does an amazing job with these sorts of scenes.

Don't suppose you can upload a higher res' version?

Either way - I've been inspired - will give this sort of shooting a go at the next race for sure!

All done in Photoshop.

I droped all the individual pics on to one larger one and lined them all up like a big puzzle I wanted to make it look this way.

This was just a quick experiment I am going to do it with a bit more care next time.

I thought I did upload a higher res image but it seems to have been resized down.

I took 250 individual shots at that spot and used 107 to make the image and about an hour and a half to put it all togeather in photoshop.

That's a really good result. Would look good printed on canvas.

Rob's picture

Sorry - I meant bigger than the one you uploaded. That is visible in the 'Original' link under the image:

I see that's 1044x499, how about something 1600 wide at least? Laughing out loud

Damien's picture

Ok just did it at 2500.

Rob's picture

Looks very nice.

Looks crap on the computer.

It looks so much better at full size 17000 wide at 300dpi I think I will get a print done at 40 x 30 (inches) just to see if its worth persisiting and having a serious go at creating images like this.

Rob's picture

That's an expensive print just to try!

I do like the image and if I dont print it now I never will it will be filed away on a hard drive and newer images will take priority when it comes to picking stuff to get printed.

A guy I work with is a professional photographer and he uses to get prints done. A 30 x 40 is $57.00 plus you would allow about $15.00 for shipping.

Just spotted this as a "Random Image" on the web site.

Im very impressed with it and can only assume that it was pre-emptive with all the additional scenery photos.

Love your work!

Damien's picture

Sure was.

Inspired by David Hockney.
