Default I had to stick with a traditional shot but thought I would share my pano attempt.

I do like the panoramic version! Not surprised it didn't make it. And the accepted version is also really good. You should stop that all the time.

Looks like a fine shot to try with an ultra wide on your 7d, instead of the 24-105 @ 24.

Cool shot, I thought it was a fisheye at first glance.

Although I would put it more into the 'gimmick' category than the 'art' category. Still, nice.

The regular shot is better.

Long admired your work, Travis, but this cat is not a fan of panorama shots.

And where is the black anvil cloud with lightening and driving rain? I expect that at a minimum from you

Thumbs up

The accepted shot is excellent but it is nothing we have not seen before.

So I vastly prefer the pano since I like the stretching of boundaries of what is a photo.

And just for fun, I really dig the "roller coaster" look.

If I'm running this site, anything from Travis gets accepted. Even pictures of his cat.

This made me laugh out loud. Very nice, thank you.

As J stated, it is a gimmicky shot and as others pointed out, it is fun to bend the rules when we can here.

I'll second that. Travis is one of the masters of this craft. I have thoroughly enjoyed the last couple of days with Travis and Mike both posting gem after gem.
