Lawrence, Kansas Panorama

This is a panoramic photo of Lawrence, KS taken from the viewing deck of the Oread hotel. I think it really shows how green it is around here in the summer and the KU Campus really is beautiful. If you have the chance, head up to the top of the hotel (drinks start at 4:00) and take it in yourself! It really is impressive.

I was looking for an excuse to try Photoshop’s photomerge function and was pretty impressed with the job it did. Not flawless by any means, but it found and blended the content as well as I ever could by hand. My only complaint was that it was a 360 panorama, but I wasn’t able to tell it where I wanted the center point to be. This is probably a better tool to use for compositing 2-3 photos together within a smaller viewing angle.
