What do you think of taking your photography to a higher level and making your photographs more impressive? Capturing photographs is the only way that allows photographers to show us the stunning beauty of nature, animals, birds, buildings and other amazing things that exist in our world. The ordinary way through which the photographs are captured does not allow photographers to show all what they see. So, if you want to take your photography to a higher level, you have to resort to panoramic photography. Such kind or technique of photography is perfect for those photographers who want to capture a wider perspective and present a complete view of what they photograph. Panoramic photography, which is also referred to as wide format photography, requires using specialized equipment or software for creating horizontal panoramic images. Panoramic photographers use ultra-wide lenses or resort to stitching several photos together through using AutoStitch or Photoshop to finally create their panoramic images. In addition to moving the camera from left to right for capturing panoramic photographs, you can also go up or down for showing more details. The horizontal images are widely believed to be the most common when we talk about panoramic photographs, but in addition to this type of photographs, there are also the vertical images or vertical panoramas that are ideal when you photograph waterfalls or buildings. Let’s start enjoying the stunning panoramic photographs that are presented here by the top 10 best panoramic photographers in the world.10 Dr. Nicholas Roemmelt – Germany
