Here’s the last of the Shoshone Falls panoramas.  I way over did the HDR (on purpose of course).  The panorama is made up of only 20 pictures (4 pan frames x 5 exposures each) and is only 277 Mb.  I think it’s the best of the three panoramas of the falls.  By the way the little building on the left at the bottom of the falls is the power plant.

When I was shooting Shoshone Falls I took three panoramas from three different places.  I finally got around to doing number two.  This one is a bit more painterly or more heavily processed.

One of my favorite places is Shoshone Falls on the Snake River near Twin Falls, Idaho.  On our way home from Boise last week end we stopped.  This time of year the water is roaring over the falls.  This picture is made up of 50 pictures.  I HDRed together 10 pan shots, each HDR is made up of 5 shots.  I took the houses and etc in the background out of the picture.   I don’t know why anyone would let people build houses on the precipice of the falls, but I guess it’s a free country.  As a side bar my computer has nine gigabytes of RAM.  I used 7.5 while processing the stitching in Photoshop.  The picture is a 325Mb tiff.  I’ve reduced it to a 145Kb jpg for your viewing pleasure.
