Panoramic Chile

One of the things I like to do when traveling is to take photos that give an overall perspective to the surroundings. While this is getting to be easier with cell phones and their build-in 3D and spherical photography applications, not much can beat a full frame DSLR or film camera taking shots that are later merged to form a solid, high resolution image. These were stitched together in Adobe Photoshop with minimal post processing. The images are not cropped, so that you can see all the data. Enjoy!
