When 100 photos become 1

I saw some really cool graffiti today and I wanted to photograph it. The problem was even when I stood as far back as I could go (without standing in the middle of the road that it) with my lens at the widest setting I couldn’t fit it all into the frame.

I had two choices; first I could cross the street and shoot it from the other side of the road but then I’d have to contend with cars, motorbikes and people getting in the frame. The second option was to take lots of close up images and then put them together using Photoshop’s photomerge tool.

Even though option one would have been easier I went with the photomerge. It took me about 25 mins and over 100 photos but I think it was worth the extra effort.
