_____Random Info
The Grand Teton Range in Wyoming; the foreground is the nice Jackson lake in which I also took a swim in the evening that day (I know it's prohibited but I didn't fly 14000km there not to do it).

This is one of the few panorama shots I made on my trip. I usually don't like doing panoramas because it's alot of work stitching and correcting the images, but since I didn't have my Sigma 10-20 back then I saw no other chance to capture the range. I tried to get the sky nice and blue at an even level but since I had my CPL on it didn't work out so well. In the end I corrected most things manually which was quite some work, and it's still not perfect but there's not much I can do beyond this point. But I'm still pretty content with the outcome.

Notice in that in the middle of the picture beneath the Tetons peak there is a forest fire emitting smoke which somehow adds a nice feeling to the image commenting on the unusal heat that lasted during September. But it also makes the left part a little more hazy. The original file was 15736x3175).

_____Update Info
After seeing the resized version on DevART I figured my job denoising it wasn't good enough thus I reworked my settings and updated it.

_____Update Info_2
I finally got around to exchange the jpg with a reasonable png to get rid of the artifacts in the image.

Na toll. Ich kann das Bild nicht zu meinen Favourites hinzufügen, weils schon drin ist :D

Hab grade gesehn, dass du eine K20D benutzt. Das macht das Bild für mich nochmal besser :-)

Sehr schönes Bild!

Schönschön :-)

Vorerst kommt der Wechsel auf die K-5 bei mir nicht in Frage.. für das Geld kann ich mir gut und gerne 2 super Objektive kaufen und die stehen bei mir erstmal in der Priorität.. und solange macht meine K20D auch noch super aufnahmen :-)
Abgesehn davon muss ich dann auch noch nicht die Knöpfe hinten links aufgeben :-)

Yo, das stimmt allerdings. Die Ergonomie hat definitiv abgebaut, ich mag das Layout der K20D auch viel lieber. Aber die Perfomance ist halt wesentlich besser. ;)

No need to be, this wasn't such a technical masterpiece, it's not that hard to take great pictures if the conditions are that good. ;)

This is beautiful. :wow: I really like the panoramic view of the landscape and the rich colors and lighting. I agree with the above comments- very tranquil and majestic. Wonderful job. :clap:

As a side note, I also like the fact that you framed this stunning view with a white border- offers a nice contrast. :)
Reply
:iconnicolasalexanderotto:
Well, I think a black border somehow interprets the motif wrong instead of giving it a feeling of "off-screen" continuum it frames and cuts of everything that is not on the picture itself; thus it's white.

And thanks alot for the comment. :)

Indeed that smoke makes a nice addition to this picture, Also the water looks fantastic!
Reply

Yeah, the water was pretty dark even without the CPL. It's awesome to do photography in bigger heigts the lack of UV already gives you way better colors. :D
