Goat Lake 8240'. Sawtooth Range, Idaho. 8.1mi round trip. 1600' elevation gain....most of which is in two parts with the rest being quite chill through the forest.
I've got to give a shout out to my ancient LR 6.14. I should have had a wider lens but only took the 24/1.8 (35mm FF). This is 15 a shot portrait orientation pano with 7 across the top and 8 across the bottom. Maybe a little excessive but I don't think I could have got it with much less than 13 shots and didn't want to risk it. LR 6.14 on a standard iMac of about 2 years old took it's time but cranked the stitch out like a champ!
Nice job, "1600' elevation gain", what was elevation on top ? Did you have a panning rig and leveling base, or just on your ball head panning with your tripod level.?
Also I didn't know LR could process multi images top and bottom row pano's all at once, I thought it was just capable of normal single row pano's . Saying that, I would of stitched bottom row, then stitched top row , and then stitch results of bottom and top row.
