London - Natural History Museum

Some archive scavenging...


I showed a similar photo about 3 years ago, see here.


I wanted to make a horizontal photo all along, but unfortunately the stairs were really packed. Back then, I didn't have the photoshop skill to remove them. Skills got better so I've redone it ;-)

So the stairs are basically created using the clone stamp...


I had to use 2 horizontal shots, one with the camera tilted down and one with the cam tilted up and stitch them to get a so called vertorama (nod to Paul :-)), otherwise the railing would've been cut off.


As you can guess from the ISO, it's handheld at 1/15 second. I had to choose f/11 so the railing would be sharp from beginning to end.


Only 1 exposure no HDR


Oh, and please view it large on black - press 'L' - else you'll miss all the details...
