Motor Transport Museum of San Diego
During yesterday morning’s adventure beyond the boondocks, I found many subjects worthy of photography. One of them was the Motor Transport Museum of San Diego. It’s a huge factory from decades ago, too big to fit it all into my 28-300mm lens. Keeping in mind my previous work with the Photomerge function of Photoshop, I took five pictures and sent them to Photoshop, which gave me this:
As you can see, the picture’s a little crooked and the buildings seem to be leaning extraordinarily. Since there has not been an earthquake recently….
With previous landscape panoramas I have done, I simply cropped the picture to make it straight. However, landscape panoramas rarely have tilting buildings in them, so this is a perspective issue.
Fortunately, Photoshop can easily correct that, too. I simply clicked on the crop tool, then the perspective tool, drew a perspective box on the picture, adjusted the sides of the box to indicate what should be straight, and then clicked on okay. Photoshop worked its magic and gave me this:
Unfortunately, the museum is only open from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Saturdays. I guess you know where I’m going on a future Saturday, probably sooner rather than later.
