It's Panorama time. This is the view from the lower lookout point at the Makapuu Lighthouse. This pano is made from 4 vertical shots, 6 exposures each. I'm not sure which I like better, verto or pano, but I'll give you guys both so you can decide.
Each frame is an HDR tonemapped from 6 exposures and blended with 2 of them. Then auto stitched in CS3. Curves, contrast, highlight/dodge tool, unsharp, and noise ninja. Oh and adjusted the Lens Distortion in cs3 to fix the curved horizon.
