  • Notes For this shot I took 18 shots at 3 exposures each. I mounted the camera in the portrait postition on the tripod so I could get the widest view in the panoramic. I used dynamic photo HDR to process the raws to HDR images then saved as tiffs. I imported the 18 tiffs into photoshop and stitched them together with photomerge. Sharpend a little and finished! total time 3 to 4 hours.

Sunrise View From ridge in the Guadalupe Mountains. In the permian age Over 250 million years ago, what is now called the Guadalupe Mountains, Was once a reef. It is the only permian aged exposed reef the world. After millions of years of uplift and retracting ocean, the reef formed into mountanous peaks and valleys. This is a land full of Indian legends, awe inspiring valleys, and over a thousand caves including Carlsbad Caverns.

Thank you for the kind comments. I am having a hard time calibrating my monitor for brightness. Does this print in your opinion have the right amount of brightness to you?

Epic Epic Epic Photo! Brightness looks ok, post another with the brigtness boosted to what you think is good so we can get a better idea of how bright it should be.

Have you tried either of these 2 tools to help set up your monitor? http://www.calibrize.com/ http://tft.vanity.dk/ Both work great!

This is truly a fantastic photo. The brightness is perfect; and, the commentary is most helpful in setting a context for the photo. This scene was made (years ago as you note) for HDR.

Good composition, light and colour rendition, & well-stitched. I am always relieved when I see an image which has not been hideously over-worked in HDR!

Awesome job! I think panos are the hardest to capture correctly. The lighting,prcessing and everythig else is just pristine!!

Nice work - and great location. I love the sky and only wish there were more exposure in the dark shadows of the mountains - just a bit.
