    Here is my attempt at a panoramic shot of a shelf cloud somewhere in South Dakota I think, in late May.

    I open this thread, my son's standing behind me, and the moment it openes up, a simultaneous "Wow!" is to be heard ... what a storm cell. I can't say I have ever seen anything like this before.

    (Do I detect a bit of a rupture in your composite pano a tiny bit right of the centre?)

    #2 for me, brillant viewpoint and subject. #1 is good, without the person (left) and building (right) it would have been a nothing shot, but they add the perspective.

    I wish i had weather like this to photograph. Good work.

    Wonderful shot. The first one gets my vote. Such a strange and spooky scene.
