Panorama Image from Badlands National Park

10-shot hand-held panorama from Badlands National Park, 2020

Panoramic stitching software has gotten so good, that nowadays I’m able to capture many of my pano shots hand-held. This image is a composite of 10 vertical images captured with my Nikon Z7 and 24-70mm f/4S Nikkor Z lens. I merged the images from RAW in Lightroom Classic and then adjusted the resulting raw file in both Lightroom Classic and Photoshop using Color Efex Pro 4 to enhance color and contrast. The resulting file ended up at over 250 megapixels!
