    This was the north face of Pikes Peak this morning. There were fast moving clouds from a front and it got a deeper coat of snow less than an hour later.

    I liked the look so much I hated to include all the sky above or the traffic below as they both detracted a lot. So it ended up looking like a panorama.

    I like it, albiet very strong 'blue'. Maybe add a little warmth in your editing?

    I think the crop is great. The panoramic works very well.

    In the right room, that would hang beautifully.

    You would do the same thing in a darkroom if there was more information on the negative than you wanted in the finished print. Although I strive to get the composition in the frame exactly the way I want the final image, sometimes it just doesn't work. Nothing wrong with some creative cropping now and then. :wink:

    This looks great as a panoramic. It's a great shot, too. I like the "blueness" - I think it enhances the feel of "cold mountain air" this scene captures.

    Nice work! :D
