Sometimes when it is a quiet day where I am photographing I try different techniques just for the fun of it and to see how it comes out. I liked the Duck Box off in the distance with the fall colors and the browning grasses on the shoreline. I shot 7 horizontal shots going from the water to the sky. Loaded all the layers into Photoshop and then did an auto align, then an auto blend. I guess I see it as a challenge plus gives me practice for when I really need to use this technique.
