Default Warm-cold winter-panorama

Just trying to convey the cold on this side of the sound, to the (leftover) warm on the other side. The sun is just dipping below the horizon, coloring the hills yonder with warm rays.

BTW, this is a 'spin-off'-picture of another series - Wooden docks in the winter-morning and the -afternoon - from the HDR-Forum. I didn't want to fill up the thread with too many pictures, but I didn't want to 'not-post' this one here...

This is a 2-panel panorama made out of 5-exposure-HDR's. Shot with Panasonic LUMIX G1, and rendered in Dynamic Photo-HDR.

Resolution: 1280 x 591 pixels


Smaller resolution: 1024 x 472 (saves you scrolling, if you have lesser screen resolutions).


CC welcome of course:

I like it Walter. However the other Pano's of this same location were a tad bit better. Not enough foreground in this series. Those branches or twigs on the bottom are cropped to tight in my humble opinion.

Thank you AR,
but then the other pano's had a different goal.

They were supposed to be more 'seriouse' pictures, judged as 'standalones' while this one here - if you read my first line again - were only supposed to be:
quote - Just trying to convey the cold on this side of the sound, to the (leftover) warm on the other side. - unquote.

So different takes for different moods or messages...?

different feel for sure presented like this. while i do prefer your other post, this does put the golden light on center stage. so you succeeded in that goal.

This is a really nice shot Walter which conveys the two "feelings" very well - if I was standing on the cold side of the sound, I'd love to get immediately to the warm side

Thank's for sharing!

Thank you, Markus!
It's not a great photo, but I like the mood and the golden light-spot on the other side, just there by the white house on the hill.

That's what I like the most about this shot... this golden light is sooo warm in this cold cold winter scene!

I really like it. At first glance it has some appearance of a painting and while I understand some of the comments that, from a technical perspective might prevent it from being wall art, it would look perfect in a National Geographic article about the community. Any picture that makes a snowy environment without a chairlift desirable to step into is a winner.
