Panoramic Clouds

I took this not long after the one I posted on Friday and tried my hand at doing a panoramic stitch. There isn’t a ton of texture in the clouds but the transition to ever stormier clouds seemed interesting to me.

Unfortunately, I learned that Lightroom 4 can’t do this on its own, it wants to use Photoshop for panoramas, which I don’t have. I do have Photoshop Elements which can do panoramas, but it wasn’t working right. So I ended up using Windows Live Photo Gallery to stitch tiff versions of the images together then brought that back into Lightroom for final editing.

I’m sure it would have worked better if I had Photoshop but still, this worked out nicely. Now I just need a better subject to try this with.
