Photographer's Note

This is my first attempt of using the photomerge feature of Adobe Photoshop Elements. As I look into the stitched image, I see evidence of the process - it does not appear seamless. I did not do additional pp work after stitching except for auto contrast and level adjustments. Later if I remember I will post the original photos later and invite people to do a WS. I'd like to learn how to do this correctly.

I found the photos as I was again digging into my archive last night. Taken almost a year ago, the rainbow appeared prior to a brief shower. We were strolling the low shore of this quaint town which was teeming with corals and other marine life.

A trip to Guiuan takes much doing. The town, located on a narrow peninsula that juts out of Samar like a tail, is approached by land in a round about way, involving a trip to Catbalogan on the west and a mountain crossing to Taft on the east coast, then a long trip south. The shortest land route would be through Basey, but the passage between Basey and Balangiga is nearly impassable. The more convenient trip is to start at Tacloban and take the ferry to Guiuan. The relative isolation of this town has helped preserve much of its heritage. The trip is well rewarded by the sight of a complex much intact, after many years of changing fortunes.
