    These are very nice! They are all nice, but I really like 5 & 7. But the Pano... sweet! I do a lot of panos and am curious, what's your workflow? I've been using PTGui and have been very happy with the results.

    Again, well worth getting up early for.

    Great shots! I forgot how pretty Niagra is. I haven't been there in 20 years!
    Your panorama is seamless, great job!

    One thing I have always wanted to do was capture the falls at sunrise. Nicely done with these, but I gotta go with the pano as my fave:D

    thanks

    Yeah if you want to see the falls, i suggest to do it at sunsrise.
    as if you go during the day..
    see the sidewalk on the right of the pano that leads to the falls..
    well, its pretty much jam packed with people. the road is non stop traffic.
    and it near impossible to get set up with a tripod at the falls like i was.
    there was maybe 6 other people there..
    until 7:30am. thats when the buslaods of asian tourists started pulling up.


    Heres an HDR i made.
