Hello all.
This photo is my first ever panorama, 6 shots. I was recently in the South West of Western Australia on a small peak named Mount Trio. I have always loved seeing mountain range shots where there are multiple layers heading into the distance, so seeing as I haven't done a mountain shot like this before I thought I would try.

For a first pano Im reasonably happy, although I'm pretty sure there is a lot of improvement to be had. Possibly the bottom corners are too dark, the orange is a little too saturated on the right, and maybe the white balance is a little cool. Also not totally sure about the crop either.

If anyone would like to have some input of any kind It would be much appreciated.

Grant

I decided to crop the hell out of it, which may be better.

There is quite alot of purple in the foliage bottom right, which isn't showing up in the in the file when saved on my computer. Any idea what the deal is with that?

I think you're being too hard on yourself. Both shots are wall-hangable. Print them big.

I think you have a lovely atmospheric perspective due to that gorgeous gradation.

The shift in colors is because your computer isn't saving to the same color palette your original image is in. For example your camera could be set up for sRGB or Adobe RGB or ProPhoto RGB. You need to make sure you have consistent palettes through out your work flow or you will see these shifts.

For what it is worth.

I have a Nikon d750. It only has 2 colour space options, SRGB and Adobe RGB. I have always had it on Adobe RGB. If I save an image from photoshop back to Lightroom or export an image from Lightroom, they are always set at ProRGB. From what you are saying, this isn't a good idea?

Each color space renders slightly different. If you want what is in camera, then on screen, then in print to match, it is best to use a consistent color pallet. The biggest two are screen then printer. Camera isn't as important because that image will be altered anyway. But how lightroom interprets the colors will depend on your color space. if you have a third party print your images, they should be able to provide you with a calibrated color profile you can use to make sure what they print matches what is on your screen.

Cheers

Sorry for all the questions. So that means that I should change the colour profile for my MacBook as well?. I changed it to Pro photoRGB and it changed the colours drastically, not in a nice way .

No, set your computer back to it's default color space.

Set all of your editing programs to work in the sRGB color space until you've had a chance to read up and understand - 'Color Management' and 'Color Problems?'.

Your camera: If you shoot only .jpg, use sRGB. If you shoot raw, it doesn't matter because your editing program's raw converter will apply a color space to the file upon import.

Lot's of reading to do..........;-)a

From a visual perspective, I like the first more. To me it's like hearing an orchestra or just the clarinets.

I'll echo Shaun's comments 100%.

From bushwalking experience, and seeing such in the raw, ie gazing in awe, that top one gives a greater overall appreciation of the depth of visual wonder and the transitions from one part of the landscape to the other are just lovely.
It's not that one really needs to see these sort of scenes personally, but this helps encapsulate that feeling.
It's simply stunning in my view, but I know how much more that would have been gazing on it and watching the light play, yes like a symphony, across the ranges.

Any others? No doubt it looks different as the light fades.

I personally think it looks great and prefer the original crop with the clouds. The darkness in the corners works for me as does the orange. I weould say a TINY bit warmer on the white balance but other than that it's great!
