Panamint Mountains : Death Valley

Death Valley

The Panamint Mountain Range is the most notable of the mountain ranges within Death Valley. This panoramic image was taken shortly after sunrise at the trail head of the Natural Arch, shows the wild flower bloom in the foreground, Lake Manley and various salt deposits in the middle and the Panamint Range in the background.

This image is a two row stitch (About 54 MP or so) and uses a different set of lens equations for the second row. This was done to allow me to shift focus to maintain a sharp foreground and background at the same time. PanoTools was then allowed to use unique lens parameters for each image on the second row.

Canon EOS 1D Mark II ,Canon EF 85mm f/1.8 USM
This is a 2 row stitch using different focus points for each foreground image. full exif

As usual, technically flawless Steven. This scene makes a marvellous panoramic, thanks also for writing some interesting commentary.
