Anyway, as I noticed the potential for a good sunrise I grabbed my bag (my tripod is always in my truck) and headed out. Seeing as I have been wanting to use my new zoom I kept it on at the start, that led to the panorama in my previous post. I probably should have tipped the lens up and tried for another row, but the sky was moving fast and I figured that it would mess up the panorama software so.... I popped on my trusty Sigma 10-20 and took a few shots, and found myself wishing to be a little bit wider... GASP!!! yes even wider than that amazing ultrawide zoom! So I did some gentle stitching of the three shots I took, nothing too crazy. This is what I got. Likely will end up being cropped to the pixel dimensions of my monitor for use as a wallpaper. Or some other more nefarious purpouse when I need a sky.... ;-)
This is a HDR quickie taken as I arrived at the Oquirrh Mountain Temple. As you can see from the watermarks I have not paid for the full zoot software and didn't like the shot enough to clone the watermarks out. Interesting perspective though.
These are from the same series of shots just processed differently, I think they would both make good 8x10 crops instead of 8x12. Do you think I should add them to my gallery of Temple Photo's for sale on Zenfolio? They are certainly striking. Hmm... Originals taken with my Pentax K-28mm f3.5 manual everything classic.
