Thanks for the kind comments! No filter was used in the production of this image but I did change the color balance a bit in ACR
>And if I am not mistaken, you did an earlier posting of this same scene. It almost looks like it was shot in the rain, which I quite often do.
I've done a bunch of farm shots and the one you’re referring to was a different farm as I've only shot this particular farm, one time. The image here was shot under very quickly changing light conditions. When I was setting up, the clouds thinned enough at the top so that one could see mountain peaks above, but by the time I started the sweep, the clouds had obscured the peaks.
> It is funny how I seldom think of shooting with Panos in mind, even though many of my landscapes are amenable to such treatment. I will keep it in mind next time I am out and give it a try.
A lot of your techniques would adapt very well to panos!
