Default Panoramas

My wife and I took advantage of the last two days before school starts to make an overnight trip to Queen Wilhelmina Park on the Arkansas/Oklahoma border. It was our first trip to the area...very impressive at the top of the Ouachita Mountains overseeing wide fertile valleys. I played around with shooting panoramas a little. This valley is to the East of Rich Mountain, the second-highest mountain in the chain.



I didn't have good look with sunset and sunrise. Sunset over the Ouachitas is sometimes spectacular, but a late thunderstorm left me with low cloud cover, but some interesting cloud effects.



This morning, I didn't set an alarm, but woke up early anyway, and almost made it down the mountain to the same vista in the first shot



Each of the panoramas was stitched with the stitching software inside PSE7.

Lovely! Photoshop has nice software for stitching panoramas, makes them fun to take now (how well I remember trying to stitch one together by hand - took me a week to get it so it looked half-way acceptable). These three have such wonderful color.

Great views of some amazing scenes - the mountains do lend themselves to the pano approach, and you accomplished it quite well!
