On our round the world trip earlier this year, I took quite a few shots for panoramas. I’ve done a quick stitch before, but hadn’t got round to styling them yet. After seeing many of Kirk Hille’s great shots, I thought I should have a go trying to clean them up and make them pop. I just love the colours, the sharpness and composition in Kirk’s images – very inspiring.
Anyway, this shot was from the top of the Notre Dame church in Paris. Wifey decided to stay on ground level and look around, but I went up all the steps with the kids. We only had limited time at the top as the wanted to keep the people moving through, so I found a spot to hold steady and snap a few shots. I haven’t found a stitching program that stitches raw images yet so I had trouble getting some detail in the sun blown out clouds behind the Eiffel Tower. And there’s some weird blurred out buildings along the river – I think I’ll have to try the stitch again.
