The Fiery Furnace section of Arches NP in Utah. My first vacation with a DLSR so I was trying a bit of everything. Most of the time the wrong way but I got lucky with one shot that was later published in a magazine and I took home a nice 70-300mm lens in the process. Beginners luck for sure.

Thanks I finally have Photoshop and am learning to do these. I have a lot of them stored away. I've done a few in the past but never gotten results like this. I can't find a seam anywhere. I didn't know enough about panoramas to shoot them in portrait mode. Now I have a panning base and am itching to get some more done the correct way. Now that the heat season is upon us here I'm trying to learn PS as best as possible before the fall and all the shooting opportunities then. The landscapes in that area are unreal. Everywhere you look. And if you are able to get to the back country via 4x4 its even more stunning. We came upon a camel ranch of all things while driving around one day. The cryptobiotic soil is very fragile so you really need to stay on the roadway. Its like a black crust on the sand takes hundreds of years to develop and without it nothing else can grow in what is almost a sterile environment. Most of the roads and many of the older hotels are from the uranium prospecting boom. The White Rim trail takes the best part of a week to navigate.

That's an excellent panorama. I have not had that good a success outdoors myself although I have kept the aperture the same. Congratulations!

You need to lock the exposure too or shoot in manual mode with the ISO set to a specific setting. Then I correct one of the set in Lightroom and when it looks right I make a preset from that and then apply it to the rest in the set. The rest is the Photoshop photomerge command. Very simple and I have yet to see a seam in any I've made. Get a remote shutter control and use the mirror lock up. No remote then set the camera to a 10 sec timer before it fires the shutter. I had all that down but didn't know to put the camera in portrait mode on these.
