    Yes, Una, quite a bit. I've always been quite fond of Innsbruck (and Austria generally) probably because of the people there. I think it would be a wonderful place to raise a family.

    Hey, you've been to Europe! :-) I was born in a town where the river Inn finally meets the Danube and another small river, that's why my hometown is called "Three River Town". Great picture!

    Just in under the wire! Hope you enjoyed the view! (See outtakes).

Thank you for all your votes and comments. Each one is appreciated.

elliott Thanks. I've taken many from this location and haven't quite nailed it yet!

cookiejar Thanks, glad you liked it.

    great shot. your choice of location helps avoid the un-natural curve or sloping that happens in so many panos. the ground is already sloping away from the viewer so it isn't noticed.

    Magnificent, great focus.

    mrsawyer I was of two minds about the lens flare but felt it brought home to me the experience of being there.

johncomyn See outtakes for a look at how well spaced the crowd was.

Lo See outtakes. You are right about the foreground and framing the center scene by cropping just didn't work. I went documentary rather than artistic with this one.

    I really like this one except for the lens flare. It makes it look like you shot through a window. Otherwise, quite a nice capture.

    Great view! And I don't mind the lens flair here, think the people at the right seem a little too cramped.

    Fantastic view - I'm jealous! The colours are beautiful. My only reservation is that instead of seeing the whole panorama, my eye seems to be drawn to the left or the right. I wonder if including a bit of foreground would have helped.

    fc I've done better from this spot on other occasions but I'll post some others taken this time around in outtakes.

eagle1 Your point is well taken but when the sun is higher -- it's summer! O.k. seriously, when the sun is higher you lose the detail and definition you see to the right and left of the image and the mountains in the distance "flatten" with the lack of shadow. There is virtually no haze in this photo - if you've ever look down from an airplane you'll see how the ground colour starts to wash out. That is what you see here. I could have popped the village and distant mountains in PP but it would look unnatural to me.

Ginnikins. You are right. No question I failed in not taking a second layer of images below this one just to get that foreground in. See outtakes where that was done using another camera.

    this shows very well what a panorama can do.full of interest and a deep point of view

    I like the way the scene is divided into the ski "lodge" accommodations on either side, and a vast mountain vista in between. I only wish the background vista wasn't so hazy. Having the sun directly in front of your camera lens is washing out some of the details. Don't know if you had a choice, but I think it would have produced a better picture if you could have taken the shot while the sun was higher in the sky or behind you, so the background could be better lighted and distinguishable.

    I like this one a lot, but i wish you would have included some of the white ground that you were standing on. there is some of it on the right and left sides, but it looks kinda funny with none in the center. Good picture though, I like nice, crisp feeling in it.
