This place reminds me of a waterhole where i used to go as a kid, myself and other suitably crazy friends would swim in ridiculous murky waters and jump off rocky overhangs - how i made it to adulthood is still questionable :)
Now, many years later, rather than looking at the scene with eyes for what I could jump off, now I look and see how nature has arranged stuff over the last few thousand years and how I can turn it into a worthwhile photo composition ;)
What I like about the panoramic format is 1) well its pretty damn easy to compose and 2) it naturally flows the viewer through the image without the need for complex lines or anchor points 3) there is no limit to the amount you can include in the frame :)
This particular location lent it self very well to a panorama, the rock on the right and the overhang on the left 'bookended' the scene and the falls under the morning light just naturally draws the viewer in, the lines of the water/rock edge also help send the viewer right to the good stuff.
Its a 4 shot panorama (landscape orientation), i did bracket the images so I had a slightly over exposed frame, however found that I did not really need it and I liked the way the left and right extreme frames naturally sunk into the shadows.
ya gotta view this large :)
