For those over sized sun disks, use a long telephoto lens 300mm or more. Using a tele-converter will work as well, just as long as you can get up to 300mm. For this photograph of the Cathedral, I stitched three photographs together. While the long lens creates that great big disk, it also creates a very shallow field of view. So to increase my field of view, I made a horizontal stitched panorama using Photoshop′s PhotoMerge command. When in Photomerge, I used Reposition align instead of Auto to align the three file manually. Also be sure to use Auto Blend to allow Photoshop to create the Layer Masks for each layer.
