This photo is a photostitch of 38 individual photos taken on a tripod in 3 different layers.
The photos were stitched in photoshop, then warped using the flexify filter. Any missing areas unable to be captured with the limits of the tripod range of motion were made up using other parts of the image.
In total this image took around 24 hours to complete.
Not your conventional before and after, but this is one I am extremely proud to present having made a tiny planet the long and tedious way rather than using an app on a smart phone.
There are 35 photos in the before image because I couldn't fit the last 3 without dramatically reducing the size of all other images.
