New panorama:

It's entitled raft and I am really pleased with how this came out. The bird was given to me by my neighbor, the raft came together with twigs from the yard, and the water environment was composed from creek bordering our property. The raft was photographed with the bird skeleton floating in a deep blue water table (this is shared equally between our son and our dog Barley-Rox who despite being a sixty-pound boxer, can still find a way to lay down in the table).

I started this off with the intent of showing my students that they could be creative with their current panorama project in digital photography class. The panorama doesn't need to be typical in the sense that the the photographer needs to complete a 360 degree rotation in pictures. Moving some objects around a bit in Photoshop can work as well. This work was composed of four images covering about 160 degrees.

Like the other works in this series, I will print the image out on cloth and adhere it to a plywood frame. It is then coated with multiple layers of wax.
