Contains Lead

Here we went a wandering among the fields so green.  Here we went a wandering and look what we seen!  (I know that’s not proper grammar but it had to rhyme so there).  Was not expecting this gem of a rusty find when we were trying to find the way back to the main highway after doing a barn run.  I wish I had taken my wide lens with me to capture the full station (at least I think it was a station) because it was so interesting.

And wait till you see what the price per gallon was!

    That is a marvelously rusty find. You don’t need no stinking wide-angle lens. Take a position center to your composition, and do multiple shots moving from left to right (make sure you have good overlap), until you get the whole scene you want to capture, and then stitch them together into a wide-angle panorama using a panorama utility. Photoshop CC’s panorama utility works really well. I use it exclusively now for stitching images together.

    • That is a skill I’ve yet to acquire. Might have to pick your brain when I do go with CC which is what DH is wanting to do. But the whole “station” was so interesting and so out of time and place.

        There are lots of free utilities for stitching panoramas together. Sometimes a panorama works much better than a wide-angle lens. And then you can get really cool effects creating panoramas using a wide-angle lens.

      • Might look into it.

        Composing with a panorama in mind makes you think even more about your composition. It’s good practice.
