    This is my second pano I have ever done. The first was of my office at home. This was in Sedona Arizona. The clouds were rolling in real fast so I had to pack it up shortly after this shot. It's 11 shots alltogether. The dark spot in the lower left corner is a cloud shadow. Let me know what you think.


    Oh yea sorry its kinda small....

    I don't know how much information in this shot, but have you considered cropping some of the bottom? It would eliminate some of the dark caused by the cloud shadow and some of the bright center to right stuff that I find a little distracting.

    For a second attempt, I think you've done a very nice job!

    Thanks to all for your input!
    murreywalker I will try cropping the bottom tonight and see how it looks.
    I like the look of the photo the way it is but I find myself explaining the dark spot to people before they ask questions. Its weird I know!

    Looks beautiful just like it is.
    Very well done
  6. Hugh, that's a very nice pano! It's well balanced, love the clouds, no haze. You can always lighten up the cloud's shadow a bit so it doesn't pull the eye so much.
    All in all, great job!

    lovely, the cloud shadow is distracting but that`s the price you pay for having a much more interesting sky, you could cut it a little bit but it still works as is imho

    Nice job. I think composing panos is really difficult. But you did well here, the sweeping lines lead the viewer's eye through the frame from left to right. I might agree that lightening the left corner with Shadow/Highlights a bit couldn't hurt, as well as maybe adding a bit of burning or vignetting to the right corner to "balance" it. I think the crop works as-is, though.
  10. Very nice. I like the bottom part. The rock surface running along the bottom anchors the shot for me.
