As I had mentioned yesterday, this is one of my all time favorite photos. I have been wanting to take a photo like this for years, but I never seem to have had the chance to do it. In fact, when I shot it I didn't think too much about it... I just grabbed my Nikon D300 and 80-200mm f/2.8 lens, snapped a few photos and moved on. In my mind I envisioned much more dramatic hills with long rows of plants and a partly cloudy sky letting a couple of beams of light on the most important part of the photo, etc.

Because I didn't think much of the photo when I took it, I really don't know where we were... somewhere between Murfreesboro and Rock Island Park. It wasn't until Laura saw the photos and said she liked them that I thought about stitching the two photos into one panorama, and when I the panorama merged in Photoshop, I was very excited and worked on it for almost eight hours.

Perhaps one day I will write a short tutorial on the whole post processing of this photo, and although the original version didn't look too different, it took lots and lots of trial and error until I got it to look the way you see it now. I may add a few more comments and perhaps even a link to the original file at a later time, so check back here in a couple of days.

  • Nice color palette and good composition. Particularly like the juxtaposition of the clouds and the greeneries.

  • I think the resulting photo was well worth the effort but I would definitely be interested in seeing the original though.
