Vietnam Service Memorial Panorama

Last Spring I was regularly reading another daily photo blog based in Chicago called The Windy Pixel. It was a fantastic blog that showcased beautiful HDR (high dynamic range) photographs and offered tips on photography and processing. Unfortunately the blog is no longer continuing its run. However, it is still there to view and read for anyone who hasn't experienced it. I highly recommend it. The photos on the blog are mainly HDR photos and they also incorporate the use of an amazing piece of FREE photo processing software called Hugin. Hugin is a photo stitching software that allows you to create vertoramas and panoramas. Rather than offer an incredibly poor explanation/tutorial for you, I'll link the original tutorial offered at TWP. The photograph above was my first attempt at using the Hugin software. Chicago's Vietnam Service Memorial sits along the Chicago River near Wabash and Wacker. It's a dedication to all the men from Illinois who died serving their country during the Vietnam War. Outside of Washington D.C. this is one of the largest Vietnam Memorials in the county.
