Examples: Alabama Hills

These examples shot in the Alabama Hills near Mt Whitney.

Includes images up to full camera resolution and panoramas much larger.

@45mm: Lenticular Clouds over Owens Lake

This 3-frame 187-megapixel panorama is not quite as sharp as I would like, due to violent wind even when I hid myself behind a huge boulder. The 45mm focal length was as wide as I had, and lacking an L-bracket for the GFX100, I could only shoot in landscape orientation.

Stopped down to f/6.4 as here, performance is very good, but I do not have full confidence that it is ideal since autofocus was struggling, and there was no time to verify optimal focus across the frame as a whole. And such lighting does not wait for the photographer!
