Love this shot! The unique POV seems to be quite a bit lower than what is normally seen at this spot.

Yeah, Jon gets lost easily.  :p

All, thanks so much for the great feedback and overall you're comments mimic my own feelings about each. That said, it's great to hear it from others because sometimes when I'm working at something too long I lose my opinion in the details. Thanks again!

Sure Wilt, here you go. One series SOOC:

Thank you! Now can you post the HDR combo for the same shot (or refer to the post # which has it)?

Maybe I'm just shorter than most folks? :p I wonder if it's because I used a fisheye?

I don't know what you mean by HDR Combo. You originally commented on my photo's: 2240 or 2245. You didn't say which.

Re: Horseshoe Bend - That's awesome. Inspiring photo. My wife and I want to go there. Can I ask what is the value of manual blending versus PS's native ability to stitch them together? Is it because PS blends different EVs differently and the images won't line up? Also... to ensure they line up, do you record all your actions to apply on the second blend?

You're correct, the arch does not appear in the bracket photos I posted for you which are of the left edge of both 2240 & 2245. You asked to see a bracket set of the original photo's and that's what I posted for you. The final photograph is a panorama made up of 6 separate camera setups. I picked the left most setup because it had the most light difference.

OK, understood. Do you have any HDR vs. originals, where you simply took one framed view rather than a composite of different views?

Thanks Nathan! There are several reasons I prefer manually blending over automated, but the main reason is it yields a more natural result than I'm able to achieve otherwise.

I've found that LR's new Pano feature does a great job at stitching pano's consistently. I've run into different exposures being stitched together separately not lining up before, but I didn't have that problem this time. I even used LR's boundary warp feature on both. It worked very slick and they went right together.

OK, here's something a bit different but does fall under the natural HDR umbrella. Not exactly natural from a presentation perspective but my interpretation of the title of the group is referring the exposure processing. Forgive me if you disagree.

If you haven't seen one of these before, it's a 360 degree panorama, displayed in planet form. This is the full series of the last shot I posted a couple days ago and if you look on the left side of the image you can see the same Horseshoe Bend scene. I've always wanted to do a planet since I first saw one a few years ago and this is my first attempt. Might as well go big and make it an HDR!

This was processed in PTGUI. The shot is made from 10 shots at 16mm (fisheye). Each shot is a 3 shot bracket at +/- 1EV.

Thanks. I recently picked up the PS/LR CC bundle and I haven't had occasion to stitch using LR yet. Good to know!

I haven't done HDR in a while, but this scene required it:

And here's a pano from the same location, consists of 5 images each of which is -+1 EV HDR shot:

The first shot suits me very well but I am not so sure about the pano, it seems to have less impact.

The scene looks very familiar to me; like the Eildon Hills in the Scottish Borders. But I guess you are going to tell me that it is somewhere quite different. The neat flagstones don't look right for The Eildons!

I agree, the scene isn't best represented by a pano - first shot is my favourite too.

It's from Mam Tor in the Peak District, only 15 mile from where I live. Heading back tomorrow as hopefully there will be plenty of snow on the ground and a bit more mood in the sky!
