Mt. Katahdin from Chester, Maine

I took this at the beginning of the month, but haven’t had time to work on it until this weekend. This is Mt. Katahdin viewed from Chester, Maine. I used the Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8 VR II with the TC-20E III 2x teleconverter, for a 400mm focal length. It is stitched from a total of 28 images: 7 images across of 4 exposures each (I took 5 exposures, but didn’t end up using the brightest one). HDR tonemapped with Photomatix Pro and stitched with Photoshop. The final image was cropped to a three to one ratio and enlarged slightly with Perfect Resize to 36″ x 12″, about 39 megapixels.
