Panorama taken from Nepean lookout in the Blue Mountains national park west of Sydney. Made up of 24 images (3 high x 8 across) taken with a 10-22mm efs lens.

1/250s @ F8.

Didn't want to get much closer to the edge ;) especially with my 2yr old daughter following me everywhere!

Pretty cool - love to see a link to a larger shot if it is posted somewhere.

Says "Page is Private" so we can't see the larger version.

I like the way the river comes right at us and then sweeps away.

Much better. Now I can see the crooked horizon and the clouds that need a bit of burn ;)

Still like the photo from the reasons I mentioned above.

I didn't even notice the crooked horizon until you mentioned it :) I haven't done any post processing on this one apart from stitching it together ;)

Using lightroom I added a graduated filter & also straightened it out slightly.

Well the sky looks much better and I don't fall off my chair while looking at the horizon now :)

The grad filter has stolen some nice detail from the tree and cliff to the left of picture now though. The shadow over the river in the right of frame is a bit heavy too although it adds a bit of mood ... not sure if that's the right way to describe it. Well ... that's what I see on my monitor anyhow. But this looks better than before.
