I’ve clearly cooked the color on this a bit. However, this is more like what you would get after (mythical) rain. The color of the sediments in the Calico hills are quite impressive, and I don’t think I over-did it. Hugin HDR stitch, 3x1ev bracketing; Gimp: grey overlay, color enhance layer.
Here is an HDR panorama experiment. I stitched with Hugin and eported as a HDR tiff which LuminanceHDR let me play with. I settled on the Fattal operator on this one. Impressive how much the pre-gamma adjustment can let you do.
This should span three monitors.
Kids really liked visiting here.
