The Lofoten Islands offer some of the best mountain scenery and hiking in the world. The going is tough, long hikes, a high degree of exposure and steep gradients, but the rewards are worth it.
I've only just got around to editing this expansive view. The composition isn't ideal, I would have loved to have reduced that scree in the foreground, but hopefully the massive scale makes up for it!
Technically....This is 3 horizontal shots spanning approximate 160 degrees. I bracketed at -1.5EV 0EV and +1.5 EV. Only the brightest 2 sets of exposures were required. I did some basic edits in Lightroom to adjust whitebalance, colour and contrast before exporting as TIFFs. I used PTGUI to create a panorama of the brightest set of exposures. I then overwrote those exposures with the 0EV ones and reran the stitch. This produced two identical panoramas that I then imported as layers in Photoshop. I did some stitching correction and then an exposure blend using layer masks. I duplicated the two layers and flattened the duplicate. I then warped the layer to pull the corners back to a rectilinear geometry. I then cropped the image. Finally I did some work to reduce the effects of haze and improve contrast in the distance and also made some adjustments to correct for uneven polarisation.
