I was just spending some time processing more images from Route 66 when I ran across a three shot panorama that was shot with my 15mm fisheye lens. Older versions of Photoshop would not be able to stitch such a distorted panorama, but Photoshop CS4 was up for the job. If you want to learn about all the great new stuff in CS4, be sure to check out my newest book which covers all the new features.
This photograph was taken in Shamrock, TX at a restored gas station that is currently being used as the chamber of commerce building. You can see my bus parked on the right edge of the frame. I visited this location for a second time just a few weeks ago.
As usual, you can click on the photo to see a larger version.
I received your Mastering HDR DVD a few weeks ago. I am a commercial photographer and the tips and traits are yet another trick in my bag. Thank you so much. Is there anything you have or recommend for combining CGI and photography or even just a crash course in CGI, that could be useful to my craft?

Could cs3 handle the distorted panorama?
Oh where’s the hell is the Fina gas station???? It seems so disneyland now, very clean place…..
I crossed the 66 (all from chicago to la) in 94 for an exxon assignment…you can have a look there
