I'll play even though maybe I should lay low on the photography front for a while here... [:I]
I had a hard time picking 5 so there may be a few extra here... Main reason these won't show in a calendar are the crops - I've fallen in love with panoramas in the mountains since you can fit so much more in a frame that way.
You most definitely should not. Your photography is obviously very well liked, and I didn't hear anyone suggest that the numbers issue is through any fault of yours (other than that of submitting awesome photos. )
I'm with you on the panoramas. And those are awesome!!!
You've really lost Wietse in your third photo..

Fabulous especially the last and it really shows why panos are superior in my opinion.

Thanks! And yes - with today's easy pano stitching software (and Sony's in camera pano stitching) there's no excuse not to get 100mb+ pictures with incredible amounts of detail. Even small 'crappy' point 'n shoots can now be stitched for excellent results and huge prints.

Sometimes technology is awesome.

I don't think you know how to take crappy photo, but yes -- technology is great help for wide angle captures.

I can't stop looking at these Twins shots. Is Mt. Alberta anywhere in your future? I know it is real tough mixed alpine climb, but considering where you've been it might not be out of your league.

Trust me - lots of crappy photos in my copy of Lightroom!

Mount Alberta is a tough climb, but I'm confident that if I was with someone of better climbing skillz than myself I could probably get up and down it in a couple of scary-a_s days! LOL. Not to sound flip but it's danger is more from the nature of it's rock (looser than ...) than its rating. Of course this is true of most of the 11,000ers.

My success on 11,000er's so far has been due to great trip partners who trust my limited technical skills and only agree to take me along due to my countless hours of back country experience.

Vern,
I'm a fan of your excellent panos as well. What pano software do you use?

Thanks - I appreciate it. I use Lightroom and Photoshop to stitch panos that I don't do in camera. I simply select the photos I want to stitch in Lightroom and select "Open in Photoshop" --> "Merge to Panorama" (or something like that) and they magically get stitched!

Now that I use Sony cameras I simply use the "Sweep panorama" function most of the time (much quicker and easier). The only disadvantage is that this produces a much smaller JPEG file than stitching individual RAW photos.

Ah okay nice. I use the sweep pano with my A580 and Rx100 too and use gigapan for the bigger stitches.

Shouldn't that beer photo have the Olympic Range in the background?

I like seeing who the people are that can't read when it says pick your FIVE!!!! favourite photos.


Why not just upload 20 while you're at it then if you're gonna go over 5.
