Here's two of my better panos that I've done lately.

First is taken in Seward Alaska last fall, I'm not from Seward so I'm not sure which mountains those are. This photo is a stitch of 4 photos put together.

Second is taken off the Seward Highway looking North at the Alaska Range on a very clear day. The mountains in that shot are over 100 miles away as the crow flies, so its pretty rare to see them this clearly from that far away. This is a single photo with a lot of blank sky cropped out.

Third is the second photo broken into three different 5x7 sized photos. I was thinking of printing them and placing them in a single frame with three photos slots to create a nice effect.

C&C is welcome.
Thanks

I like #1, but that stump in the center kills it.

hmmm, personally I like the drift wood. I think it adds something different than so many other typical landscape / horizon oriented photographs. But maybe thats just my personal preference.

Drift wood to right so it's not so distractiong and you get more of it's long shadow.

I see what you mean. I'm not sure its possible to frame the photo as you suggest, unless I go back down to Seward and find the driftwood again, hah. But I'll keep that in mind on my next composition.
Thanks for the CC

The stump is a too large for a foreground element. I like foreground elements but this one dominates too much. Perhaps a higher vantage point would have helped but then you get into potential distortion issues depending on your focal length.

I, too, think the stump in the center of the foreground is a bit overwhelming. Something smaller or moved out of center would probably look better.

I love the photo with the railroad tracks and I think you have a fantastic idea framing the photos separately. However, it looks a bit too dark for my liking.
