Swoopy Dune Pano

Mamiya M645 Pro. CineStill 800T. 3 shot panoramic stitch

 

I confess to being quite delighted with how well this came out. It is one of those things where you visualise something out in the field but there is always some uncertainty that you will be able to pull it off.

 

I was captivated by this swoop and associated curves. There is also an interesting central spot where some different coloured material is showing through the dune face. I knew that I could have gotten this in with the wide lens but most of the image would have been taken up with foreground and sky. I decided to use my long lens (the lovely 210mm f4) and shoot three overlapping frames with the plan to stitch them together later in Hugin. Hugin is one of those hugely powerful programs which can also be very daunting and frustrating to use (not to mention time-consuming) but as you can see the results really are worth it.
