Extreme Brigantine Snow Geese Panorama

On our trip to the Brigantine Division of the Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge I had a lot of opportunities to shoot a lot of Handheld Panoramas. One of my Panoramas was the most extreme panorama I have ever tried do. For the Featured Image I had to make it fit the 1200 pixel width which I exceeded x 4 times to try to hold some of the detail in the Featured Panorama. So I also cropped the full image down to 7 sections to show the detail below. Too bad it was a rather Gray day when I was photographing this group of Snow Geese because it brightened up a little later in the day. The Featured Full Panorama Image was 56 images for an image 525 inches long x ~30+ inches high @300 ppi. The Layered file was huge and the final Flattened file was 4 Gigs. I was shooting with a Canon R with a Tamron 150-600mm lens @ 483mm , f/16. Below are 7 cropped images to show the Detail in the above Featured image.

  1. Incredible piece of photography Reed! Good luck in finding photo paper to print that full size 😉
    Interesting to see a number of blue morphs in that flock.

    • Yes! If I still had my Commercial Photo studio I would have probably tried to print it! I miss my wide format printers that could print 60 inches wide x up to 200 ft. long!

    • Thanks so much! Actually you just load all the images into one layered PhotoShop file & PhotoShop does all the aligning and blending. Then if you like it you can flatten all the layers into one final file! Thanks again!

    • Thanks so much! Panoramas are fun to do & quite easy to assemble in Photoshop! And you are probably correct about Ross Geese. I noticed a few different birds among the Snow Geese.
