HDR Panorama from Phanom Rung Historical Park – Buriram, Thailand

Jun 14, 2010 | HDR Panoramas, Travel & Culture

This HDR panoramic shot was taken from Phanom Rung Historic Park. Located in the Buriram province of Thailand. This temple was built on top of an extinct volcano. Notice the architecture has a distinct resemblance to the structures from Angkor Wat. This is because the temple of Phanom Rung was built by Cambodians.

As I mention in June newsletter, I’ve been shooting a lot more panoramas. This is because my main full frame camera broke. I’ve been shooting panos to get more image area in my HDR photos. This HDR panoramic consists of 8 HDR photos for a total of 24 exposures.

All my HDR panoramic stitching has been done using Photoshop’s Photomerge feature. But before I do the panoramic stitching, I merge my HDR photos using Photomatix. After I completed the stitching using the Photomerge tool, I proceed with my normal post processing procedure.

I’ll do a complete article on my entire HDR panoramic workflow when time permits. Be sure to check back daily or sign-up to my Feedburner newsletter to get updated.
