p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Multnomah Falls - Vertical Panorama


This is an iconic image of the Multnomah Falls located in the Columbia River Gorge near Portland, Oregon. It has been photographed many many times and there are some variations, but not too many mainly because of the site restrictions.

In this image, instead of using an UWA lens, I used a three shot vertical panorama. It was made using 24mm on Nikon D300 (36mm equiv on FX). This allowed me some cropping and also reduced the distortions that is very common with UWA lens. It was made in early July and I love the hint of the wild flowers in the foreground.

Thank you for viewing and your comments and criticism are very welcome.

Hey Maji,

Nice work on this one. I think your choice of 3 shots worked out well.

This is a REAL improvement over the usual shots--a lot better than what I took a cpl years ago.

Very nice image and the flowers in the foreground show the lack of wind or a separate exposure

Definitely iconic. But, only because it's such beautiful place. Nicely done.

Cheers,

Nice work. That isn't easy to put together, especially with not people. I know you cropped tight at the top to eliminate bright sky, but you might consider giving it a little more room, despite the sky. It's a matter of taste, but I find in my own shots in similar situations, the "disturbance" created by a tight crop is worse than the distraction of a little bit of sky.

Beautiful shot. Good idea stitching instead of ultra wide.

AMaji,
Whatever processes you used came out extremely well; I really like the image.
Small nit: a little more "breathing room" at the top of the falls might make it a tad better.
But not at the cost of losing any of the base in this image .

As you say, it's a much-photographed waterfall partly because it's so accessible, partly because it's a beautiful waterfall. But yours is probably the best I've seen. Very few capture it from top to bottom and when they do it's with a wide-angle lens that often leaves the fall itself too small and with too much foliage around it. Stitching was a great idea, wish I had thought to do that last time I was there.

I was there several years ago, but too many people at the time we were there. Your shot of the falls is great.

Thank you everyone for your comments. As for keeping more space on the top, I debated about it and chose to crop it close.

The idea for using a vertical panorama for this Falls came from an article published in "Photographing America" by Robert Hitchman. He should get the credit for implanting this idea in me.
