My first attempt at a panorama shot in Grand Canyon a few months ago. It is a 5 image stitch with each image consists of 3 exposures to get the full dynamic range.

Perfect situation for HDR, without overdoing it.

Excellent shot! You did very well, especially since you were blending exposures as well. I like it more up there when there's still snow on the ground. There's less of the dreaded haze in the winter as well... ;-)a

Thanks everyone. I think I must have taken about 2000 shots in Grand Canyon when I was there. There are so many cool lookout spots that it can overwhelm you. The good thing about going in the winter months is less tourists and cheaper hotel and gas prices. Well worth it.

I'm guessing if you "slightly" warm up the WB, it will really pop.

Very nice image.

I Love it, however my eyes are really drawn to the snow in the shades, it looks you may have bumped up the saturation on the blues too much, thus the white snow looks a bit too blue? It may or may not be my monitor at work, not sure.

Gorgeous Rayman, Wow! I've not seen such a crystal clear view of the canyon before...make me want to go there in winter too. Looks very very sharp too. When was that shot? What lens was used?

Kudos. Was Just there in March. It's a tough place to shoot.

Thanks David. This was shot with a 5D2 and a17-40L. This lens is at its sharpest between f/8-f/11. I shot it at 17mm on portrait orientation and stitched 5 images in CS5. I think your tilt shift lens will do wonders here. Wish I have one of those when I was here back in Jan.

I think you might be right. I am from Hawaii and all I see is the blue ocean and haven't seen snow for awhile now so I might have forgotten how to process snow. :) Thanks for the heads up.
