This post is very similar to the one I did yesterday. Actually, it’s the same but different. It’s the same area, same day, same general time of day, both are panoramas but, there are two distinct differences. First, I used a longer focal length (longer lens) in this image. Yesterday’s image was a 26m focal length and this one is a 42mm. That accounts for the height difference and also for the greater amount of golden color in the sky (because I’m zoomed in a bit more). Second, I used a much smaller aperture. I used f/8 in yesterday’s image and the one below is f/22. The reason I changed to f/22 was to get a bigger starburst on the sun. It worked.
This image was taken with my Sony A7R using my Sony 24-70mm f/4 lens set on 42 mm. The camera was set on Manual mode with the aperture set at f/22, shutter speed at 1/6th of a second and the ISO was set at 100. I took a total of 10 photographs and stitched the panorama together in Photoshop. Final work was done in both Photoshop and Lightroom.
