IF FOR NO REASON OTHER THAN "I CAN"
THE EUREKA INN, APRIL 2012
I kept my promise, and did some work in Photoshop. This is a composite of four - make that five photographs. The main image is comprised of four images taken with the 17mm PC lens. I "shifted" the lens from right to left while leaving the camera locked in one position. Only the lens moved. In some ways this feature of this lens makes it a very good panorama lens. It does have limits, but I was able to photograph an entire city block without moving the camera. By-the-way, the fifth frame that I used was for the street light. Because it was located at the upper corner of the shot it was very distorted. I had to clone the lamp head from another photo that was taken with another lens.

I realize that I could do a better job on the lamp, but who would have even noticed that something was not quite right aside from a utility worker. I also thought about cloning out the lamp and pole, but I have not yet felt that as a strong compulsion. As I mentioned yesterday, there was one automobile in the street in front of the inn. Fortunately, it was located just off the right edge of the photograph.
