Default Rainbow

A few weeks ago I stepped outside my front door after a rainstorm passed through. Took a 3-frame HDR. Here's the JPEG result from Photmatix Pro. Cropped some off the bottom, but left enough to show the wet pavement.

And here is the middle shot for comparison. Shot with a Canon 40D and the 10-22 WA lens.

Looks like a solid arch spanning the either sides of our dreams 'behind' the brick wall, which runs forever...The wet pavement certainly adds to the feel.
Btw, as long as one counts on the resolution and distortions of one's WA lens it should be quite enjoyable to make such panoramic pictures by cropping without bothering with stitching, especially when hdr (doubling the job!) is concerned.

Cheers,
Bahadir

Very nicely done - the HDR sure brought out the colors nicely. I wouldn't clone out the second rainbow, but that's probably because I see so few with the double rainbow (see very few rainbows at all, for that matter) and I always love that look.

I'd go easy on the crop ... you miss the second rainbow. Here's a quick edit of your single centre pic :

My result for your second pic after using hdr darkroom. It may be better than yours from photomatix pro.
