Nobscot Panorama 2008

Panorama from Nobscot Hill on the border of Sudbury and Framingham. It sometimes referred to as Nobscot Mountain.

This is take from the fire tower. It is open to the intrepid when it is in use, at the discretion of the ranger. On this cool and windy fall day, it was not open. So, I settled for taking it from the steps. Problem #1 is that there is a ton of scaffolding. You can see it in the original pictures below of the view to Boston and the view to Sudbury. I had to take many pictures from a few different places to get all fo the pixels unobsctructed - which I failed to do, so, there are some replicated pixels here and there. The second problem is the wind on the tower was causing a little vibration, so, some of the pictures of the panorama are not in focus (it could not have been an unsteady hand, no way!). Third, the clouds were moving, so, different pictures have different amount of cloud cover and the exposure was changing.

Given the raw material I had, my first priority was to make the horizon as "geometrically" accurate as possible. I did this inspite of incurring more time hacking the color blends together. The second priority was to grab the best pixels of the interesting features in the "foreground" (and keep them in the right place!). After that, I worked on the blends until they were below a certain tolerance of visual distraction.
