Then and now photography evolved, Blyde River Canyon


Blyde Canyon

This is a panoramic composite view of Blydepoort Dam and the 3 Rondavels at Blyde River Canyon I took in June of 2005. Except for the merging of the photos using Canon PhotoStich no other post-processing was done, in fact if you look carefully you will see the lines where the photographs are joined.

Fast-forward to 2011, I decided to have a look at this panoramic photograph again and see what I can do with today’s tools.

Step 1, merging the same 5 JPGs using Adobe Photoshop CS 5 and adding some content fill for good measure.

Step 2, Adjusting the merged photograph in Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 3.3 (I am too lazy to do it in CS5)

The result

Blyde River Canyon 2011

A far cry from what I did 5 years ago.
