Utah Panorama

Contributed by M Thomas

I took the seven pictures while on top of a mountain in Utah while skiing. I adjusted it using the curves which really brought out the color of the sky and the mountains.

Wow i really like this photo. It really makes me want to hit the mountains. There is a very good sense of scenery. The blue looks really cool in contrast to the pure white snow. I hope you had a fun time skiing. Great Job!!!!

Neat pic. Might I suggest cropping the top a bit? There is a her vivid line that upsets the eye of the viewer(if the viewer is OCD of course).

The best thing about this picture the fact that you were able to capture the essence of what Utah has to provide during the winter season. I love that you took a panoramic shot because it traces the eye across the whole picture, and it gives it a lot of depth. This picture is overall very well done and gives me a feeling of serenity.

The lighting is very well done. The blues skies with the white clouds are very clear. The photo is very breath taking of the view you have captured. Its quite incredible how everything is very much in focus and how the mountains seem to stretch back for ever.

One of my favorite styles of photography is panorama. I really like how the sides of the picture have snow sloping upwards. It causes my eyes to look throughout the middle of the picture. The lighting is great. It is always tricky taking pictures in snow and getting the white balance correct.

Wow, this is an amazing picture! I've never been to Utah, but it looks exactly like it did when I went skiing in West Virginia. The picture is amazingly clear, and the crop really emphasizes the panorama. Nice colors as well; they are really bold. Good job!

This picture is a very beautiful. The sky is really brought out. I love the scene of this picture, how it shows the whole city and how to it taken on top of a mountain. I also love the snow! This makes the picture more beautiful.

I really like this picture. I love the clear, blue sky and the snow. It's amazing! It makes me remember the time when I went to Europe and went on the snowy mountains. It's beautiful. If the picture was a little bigger, we would get a better view of the mountains. Overall, amazing! :)

This is such a beautiful picture! You did a great job of putting them all together. The color is wonderful, the blue of the sky contrasts nicely with the white and brown in the mountains. It is a great detailed panorama of the mountains and is clear and colorful.

This panorama is really beautiful. I love the distance from the closeness of the snow to the far off mountains. It is a really beautiful scenery. Good job!

This is such a cool picture! It reminds me of the Olympics and all the scenery in Canada. The blue sky is such a pretty color, and the contrast is amazing! I love how in focus everything is, even the mountains that look so far away. Great Job!

I completely love this picture/pictures. This panorama really brings out what looking over a mountaintop feels like. It makes you feel like your actually there, experiencing it. I love the adjustments you made and I think this is perfect. Congrats! A.M. - SPHS

I like the view of this picture. I’m however not fond of the white snow on both sides of the picture, I think it’s kind of distracting. The sky is pretty though, since it’s really blue and the depth of field is interesting too.

Wow! This looks awesome. You did a very nice job with this picture. I like the composition of the picture. The levels of the colors are great. There really isn't a thing to tell you for how to improve it. Nice job!

I really like this picture. The intense blue of the sky is really interesting to look at. The mountains and effectively contrast the white snow. This is a perfect landscape photo. The plants contrasting the white snow also capture the viewer's interest. The picture seem so professional. Its very impressive. The only think i would change is the fact that some of the foreground is cropped out, which makes it slightly awkward and distracting from the sky and mountains. However, the depth is incredible and really leads the viewers eye through the whole picture.

I like how you used photoshop for the panorama shot. I think it is a beautiful picture. I love the mountains in the winter. I think it is a very crisp and clear photo.

I really like this picture, this picture has good ratio between sky and mountains also snow on the grounds and mountains make this picture more special.

I love this shot. The adjustments you did with the sky and mountains is just adding to the majestic view. I love any kind of shot with mountains in it because the all turn out good, but this is on another level in itself. W.H.

This is a very breath taking photo!You get a sense of depth created by the mountains which causes you to feel like you're actually there. I love the colors. They're all so vivid and bright. The crisp clear clouds and mountains brings the picture to life. You did a great job of capturing the scene as a whole. Great job!

I love the vibrant colors so much - they really make the photo! I actually just learned what a panorama was a couple of days ago, so it's really cool to have an example of one now, and now I know how to do one! I'll have to give it a try.

I really do enjoy the way that the panorama is set up in this picture. The wide sweep of the mountains in the background and then further back in the distance as they fade out is great. The proximity if the snow banks also forces the line of sight unto the mountains, which i thought was ingenius.

The scope of this picture is absolutely amazing. The mountains look gorgeous when put up against the sky. The lighting is also superb; either you had an incredibly good day to take these shots, or you are great at using curves.

the way the picture came out was beautiful and the natural blues and browns in the picture really stand out and bring the picture together. i would be happy if this was on my wall.

The view in this picture is amazing. Sometimes with such huge scenery’s it is hard to capture the full effect but you certainly did. The picture looks crisp and clear which the same as a mountain. There doesn’t seem to be one main focus in this photo but my eyes are drawn to the mountain in the back. I would blow this picture up really big and hang it in a house so the scenery can be taken in. The contrast in this photo is also very cool with the snow and the blue sky.

This is a great picture. I love the size of the picture, it's different and unique. The setting of the picture is beautiful; I love the scenery of the mountains. there are many lines throughout the picture, both straight, curvy, thin and thick. It really creates a strong movement of your eyes across the photo. This is a great picture.

Nabeela said...

Wow.This picture, the focus, the depth, the detail and width of the picture is absolutely incredible. I love that you can see more than just the mountains, and the snow..I feel like Im actually at the top of the mountain with you and I love that ability and that sensation while just "viewing" this photo. You did great with editing and good job with a centered field and just creating a great picture
