I shot this pano on Sept 1st on my first visit to Crater Lake. Forest fires in Northern California gave the skies incredible color at sunset. There were still a few pockets of snow remaining on the north-facing shoreline. 14-Shots stitched together in Photoshop.

C&C are always welcomed!

Thanks for stopping by and taking a look!

I like this because it is different. I like these "shadow" type shots. Sometimes shots give too many detail; this one is very nice.

I like it, makes me wish Crater lake had been open when I was there. I would be tempted to clone the white spots on the left, they distract from the silhouette of the shoreline.

Very nice Jim, it looks darn good to me.
Is this a single row?

This is just my opinion; take it for whatever you think it's worth.

I think it's a very pretty photograph; you captured unusual light in a pretty scene, very well.

That said, I think Crater Lake is the most serenely beautiful place I've ever seen (and I've seen a lot of very beautiful places), and I'm afraid that this photo has a generic look to it that doesn't perhaps take full advantage of the incredible and unusual beauty of Crater Lake.

Again, JMO.
