    I took a trip to Yellowstone and the Grand Tetons this summer and tried my first panoramics. I shot 5 images using portrait framing and then stiched them together.

    Greetings... The images don't show up for me (little red x).

    Pretty shots! I am a fan of big puffy white clouds!

    These are great. Panos are fun to make.

    Greetings. Just curious since you have the 12-24, what do you think of these in comparison to what you could have shot with the 12-24? I like the visual depth of both of your images...

    Yamo, I get a 1x3 or 1x4 ratio without cropping or distortion due to a wide angle like the 12-24mm. I can get large prints without enlarging for example, I have printed and mounted 12x36 and 12x44" without the need to enlarge the original image.

    OK they're showing for me now. The first one is an interesting scene, but the crooked horizon is a bit distracting (maybe it's not actually crooked but just a hill, but without some "reference" to what's level, it looks crooked). The second shot is a fresh take on a familiar scene, which I like. The puffy white clouds really add to the scene.
  8. I like the dead center trail in #1, it leads your eye right where you want it to go! #2 is a nice idea--I've typically sen vertical panos of that site, trying to take advantage of the river and the falls. ours shows context so well.
