Finally... Finished...

View me larger! Click me! Then you'll understand!

I am about to fall on my face out of sheer exhaustion... my eyes have dried out from staring at the computer screen for so long...
Today was my foray into panography (thank you, Photojojo, for introducing me to another really cool technique!), which is where you take a bunch of pictures while standing in one position and then put them together in Photoshop. That was where the tiredness came in. When I got home from book shopping/photographing the Fremont troll (pictures will be up later!), I began to work on this little beauty. At first it was simple to put together the images... and the time didn't seem like a lot... but before I knew it, I was ordering pizza and working for 6+ hours trying to fit overlap minuscule details over one another so that the image would coalesce.
As you can see, not all of my efforts were rewarded (the left side has some wonky angles - the best way to view all the details is to click on the picture for a larger version, by the way!). However, I really like the way it turned out - and I think I'm going to do another panography for the Grand Canyon (that will be sweet!)
In other news, I scored 15 books at the Half Price Books warehouse sale in Seattle today - hopefully I can read them all before I leave; otherwise, I'll be lugging them back East with me...

I just realized... these panographies make perfect banners! Maybe when I get better at it/use a tripod/get one of a really cool place, I'll change out my Cowation banner... yay!

Check out some more posts featuring my photography and even more Photoshop work.
