This sky dragon surprised me by dancing across the sky one day at about 8:30 in the morning, as we were heading to church. It is stitched together from seven frames shot in a diagonal pattern. After some minor clean up, I decided that keeping the stair-step pattern accentuated the "climbing look" of the dragon. Processing tools:

  • Frames processed with Bibble5 (bought by Corel, renamed to AfterShot Pro)
  • Frames stitched together into a panorama using Hugin
  • Title/copyright overlay made in Inkscape
  • Panorama converted from 16-bit/48-bit TIFF to 8-bit TIFF using RawTherapee
  • Combined the converted panorama and title/copyright overlay using the GIMP graphics program
The full sized image is 27"x25", so I'm thinking of selling prints. What do you think?
