p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Palouse @ 35 and 400


With the addition of the 24 TSE to my arsenal, I've been wanting to make more panos and be creative with shots from the Palouse. Having lived here for almost two years, I find it relatively easy to go out with my 70-200 or 400 and find a nice spot or two. I'm not saying I'm always hitting homeruns, but getting satisfactory images with that approach has become easy. Recently, some afternoon storms rolled through. I had found a nice spot no more than 10 minutes from home to try a new approach...a wide angle pano. Here is the results of that along with some isolation with the 400mm after I was done. As always, any C&C is very welcome, and thanks for looking!

1. This pano is three images stitched, shot with the 24 TSE II + 1.4 extender + 3-stop soft GND. Clouds had covered up the sun so although the clouds look nice, the foreground wasn't getting strong light.






2. Here's some isolation with the 400mm. Small pockets had opened in the clouds and sunlight was streaming across the hills.

Photo # 1 is a bit under exposure to my taste
Phoot # 2 fantastic. I like shot.

Hey Aaron,

I sure would like Nikon to update their TSE lenses, I would love to get a 24mm to use on the D800. I do really like #2, nice light and layers.

Jim,
The PCE 24mm 3.5 is quite a looker on the D800 from every photograph I have seen with it. Definitely an excellent choice for your glass.

Cheers!

Love #2
I have always like the compression from a long lens for this type of shot

Aaron, Like the second one best. Looks like you are putting some time in experimenting. That is something I need to do more of. Nice set. Rick

Great shots! I am heading there in several weeks.

Is it true that there is a place to camp in the town of steptoe?

I can't afford a hotel.

Thank you all for the feedback.

Rick: A little more experimentation is in order. Especially once the dirt roads are dryer (which is now!) and the fields grow more then I can get really close with the 24mm.

John: Come on out anytime!

Johan: I don't know about camping within Steptoe, but there is camping available at Kamiak Butte County Park. http://www.whitmancounty.org/ssi.aspx?ssid=81
