    When I woke up this morning I noticed a Chinook was rolling in. I took a quick snap from my window, then I quickly grabbed my camera and ran out to get a few photos.

    Not sure about that line across it. Obviously and exposure thing. Any suggestions on how to avoid or even fix that? What about the size? too long?
    I am not as happy as I would like to have been with them, so CC definately welcome!

    after further review I think maybe I either should not have cropped the last photo or crop differently...

    Ah...the old Calgary Chinook winds. :D

    On the Pano, you could probably crop lower, the clouds at the top aren't really adding much...besides a lot of grey space.

    As for the line...it looks like maybe your exposure was different for the two images. When shooting a pano, you need to lock your exposure (put the camera into manual mode).

    LOL, I was expecting someone from an Indian tribe. I was like, "What the hell am I looking at?"

    I like both shots. Looks alot like where I live, except w/o the mountains. I agree that #1 needs to have some of the upper sky cropped to just above the cloud features. #2 is excellent, and would be absolutely phenomenal w/o the exposure difference.

    Great work!!!!! :thumbup:
