We got some snow this week in Colorado, and now that I actually live in Boulder I wanted to find a good place to get a panorama of the mountains with the fresh snow. Here are two of the three that I took. However, they don't look nearly as breath-taking as I had intended - they just don't seem to "pop" or have pizzaz. I think part of it could simply be I wasn't able to find the most ideal location from which to photograph, but I'm also certain that some of it is my execution and post-processing. The only cropping done to this was to make them rectilinear. If you actually download them and open them in Photoshop (and set it so you can see guides) you can see where I'm thinking of cropping them to make 36"x12" panoramas for printing purposes - basically cropping off the sides in the first one and cropping a tiny of the top and a chunk of the bottom in the second. Shot settings were f/5, 1/2000 sec, ISO 100 for both, and other than stitching, post-processing was curves and color saturation adjustment. Basically ... any idea on how to improve these? And it's okay to edit these if you want. Let me know if I need to post larger versions (I limited them to 864 px or 12" at 72 ppi). Oh, and I think a good title for the second is "End of the Road." P.S. Please read post #6 on this thread for an update.
