Burj Khalifa Vertical Photomerge

Burj Khalifa is probably the most frequently photographed object in Dubai, UAE. Trying to catch up with the pack, I decided to try vertical Photomerge.

I used Canon 5D2 with Canon EF40 mm f/2.8 STM in manual mode, fully open, shutter 1/10. I have practiced my pan few times, and then performed eight exposures starting from the ground going upwards. Later I brought them into Photoshop Photomerge to create a composite image. After minimal tweaking I've got this:

Vertical Panorama - The Dubai Mall

The Photomerge function of the Photoshop Essential works well not only for traditional horizontal panorama blending and merging. It makes vertical panoramic images as well.

The image above was "merged" from six images you can see as thumbnails below.

As with the horizontal panning you have to plan ahead, have a clear understanding of where you start and where you are going to stop. Keep it mind that the Photoshop will struggle with "merging" your series of single images and you may end up cropping the output. So to be safe, shoot wider and provide generous overlaps.
