    Shot these Monday on my way to a class at work. Handheld & in landscape mode because I was running late and shouldn't have stopped at all... :)

    Number 2 really works for me, I think it's the varied color and brightness of the ground. Pretty decent for some hurried landscapes :)

    Thanks guys. :)

    But honestly, it's pretty tough to muck up a sky shot around here. Five minutes later you get something totally different to shoot, so lost shots don't sting very long. ;)

    I like both of them, but the second one attracted my attention with its colors... great. :)

    Well done, the cloud in #2 pulls you right into the picture, I also like how the mountain is high lighted by the sunshine. Good one.

    Super shots.

    I love sky shots ..... its such a big canvas, as it were, to frame great shots with.

    Looks like you have some really big canvas to work with.

    Was it film or digital?

    How did you manage to expose the sky AND the ground properly? Curves?

    Thanks mike. :)

    Doc- it's digital. How? I used the Dr. Brown script to batch process the RAW files. This allows you to open the first file in a pano and apply identical post-processing to all the files in a pano shot.

    Then once it's lined up and minor tweaks made to match the individual shots to each other the layers are flattened and curves/saturation etc. applied.

    In these two shots I lucked out and all the frames were actually pretty close to start with, so they matched up well. The exposure frame-to-frame and within the frames are fairly close.

    It was in the post-processing of the flattened shot that the contrast is boosted to give the expanded dynamic range.
