    Nice atmospherics for this cinder cone - one of the better depictions I have seen.

    Gorgeous clouds and peak. I really like the trees on the right framed by the fog. My only niggle is the tree on the left needs a bit more breathing room below it. I would try a content aware fill in PS to get rid of it.

    I agree with your observation, will fix. I’ll check all the files that created the pano and see if I have one that includes more foreground. Thanks.

    John - is this a new set of captures in the pano or some creative content aware fill work? The result looks nice in either case.

    The tree did not bother me, but the edit looks fine.

    Unfortunately I didn’t have any images in the pano series that included more foreground beneath the tree. I tried PS content aware but was not impressed with the result, it smeared detail and was poorly executed. So...I just “raised” the tree to a more desirable location in the image by compositing it in a new layer and blended it with the layer beneath. Of course if I had “watched my corners” in the viewfinder better none of this would have been necessary. Have I learned a valuable lesson—we’ll see the next time I’ve got a great landscape in front of my camera!

    Hey John, a small change but I do really like the edit. Nice work on that editing.

    The result certainly worked. As for how well you learn from this - let me know if there is a magic formula. I wouldn't want to count the number of times I have cut off a small but visible element on the sides of a scene while I was focused on something else as the primary subject and I still keep doing it anyway :D
