Straight out of the camera? No. Is it photoshopped? Maybe a touch of cloning to clean up a spot or two, but nothing added, and no layers or corrections used. So what did I fake?
The appearance of a panorama. I simply cropped the top and bottom from the full frame giving the illusion of the panorama I had envisioned for this scene. Did I take a shortcut? I guess that depends on how you assess the situation.
As I analyzed the scene, I noticed just how quickly the shadows were flowing across the scene and knew I was out of time. If I wanted the shot, I had to make an immediate decision. Knowing I could trust my camera, and the quality of my wide angle, I counted on getting several shots of the changing shadows rather than hoping my panorama training would get the shot at all.
Lesson used: always do everything you can to prepare a backup technique or plan. Obviously, I had a backup technique ready, and fortunately I had the knowledge that I would be able to print from this file to any size I'd ever want.
