Default Panorama; Rainy day !!Better quality ADDS post#3!!

Hey all, the weather has been dull as a 500 year old rusty knife over here

To day I went out spite of the rain and tried to get something that might be worth looking at. IMO it's kinda OK, since I had to use my jacket and an umbrella to get these shots.

Any words would be much appreciated





I effed up real bad with one thing... I accidentally had the "cloud" wb setting because I had taken some Leaf pictures and they needed additional coloring to accent the fall colors.
BTW, the yellow part on the last picture on the edge of the cloud... That is indeed the sun peeking up from behind the forest directly behind me, so that is not a weird colorization due to bad exposure or anything, that is actually how it looked

Ah, yes - Acapulco!
The curse of the power-lines! Something that I have a problem with most of the time. Whenever you see a landscape worth taking a shot at, there are power-lines criss-crossing the sky!!

It should be forbidden to put thos damn things up in the air. In Norway they have started to bury them in the ground now - at last in the populated ereas, tucked away in protective pipes.

Anyway - there is something I already have learned from reading this thread. The 'trick' of the "cloud"-WB to get extra warm colors. Thank you for the tip!

As for the pictures?

#1 does not do much for me. #2 is better IMO and has interesting colors. It reminds me somehow of the Alps (Austria / Switzerland) with the high mountains hidden behind a curtain of heavy rain-clouds and looking up a steep hill. The small white house almost on top is a focusing point for the eyes.
But in #3 you have cought something special, something magic! Heavy rain / bad weather AND almost clear blue sky in the same picture!

I would have liked just a little more ground to see on this last one, and som less sky.

Nice to have cought both ends of the rainbow!

Best regards!

wow, thanks for the kind words
If you liked the 3rd picture, maybe you would be interested in seeing a fourth panorama? It's even bigger. It's a full 360. I'll get it going and upload it later on during the day.

Here's a altered #2 - I removed all the power lines.

Acapulco,

Hope you like

Thanks for the kind words, Torgny. Since that one was your favorite, I made slight alterations to it.



"Interesting" fact... done with 13 images
