Panorama Drama - keep those RAW files for future processing

Panorama Drama

Panorama Drama

I have been running through my hard drives to check on photoshoots that I have been out on over the years and I found this panorama.

This pano has been processed before but I am not sure I ever posted it. The sky was one of the best local moody skies I had seen that seemed to hang over the tor. for some time. Incidently the photo of me on my "about me" page was taken by my brother Andy on the same evening as the sun was setting.

I have spent many hours visiting Combestone Tor and it is very easy to access with a car park just 50yds or so away. Some lone trees are in the vicinity and it is good for either a sunrise or a sunset.

This shot on a sunset with the sun setting behind me, a not so common composition of this tor as I wanted to ensure the cloud structure was included in the composition.

This panorama is made up of around 10 portrait exposures that would have been taken with an ND grad to hold the sky in and expose for the foreground.

I keep all the RAW fles of my expeditions out with the cameras over the years and have a catalogue of terrabytes worth of data, with backups of backups. I revisit these files from time to time and often reprocess them as my experience and skills of working with Photoshop increase. I rarely delete files from my hard drives, I also tend to upload final images to my websites as soon as they are processed as this is an additional backup of completed files.
