Victoria 360

This is the view of Greater Victoria from Mt. Douglas in 360º HDR.

I spent hours fixing this image up thanks to my own stupidity. My camera has a custom function called Safety Shift that I accidentally enabled a few days ago while fiddling, then promptly forgot about. It’s intended to allow the camera to readjust its exposure settings if the light suddenly changes, but what it ended up doing was changing my manual exposure times while shooting the pieces of this image, all without me realising.

When you shoot a panoramic image the last thing you want is differing exposure times as the stitched images end up not being the same brightness. Darn!
