Couple Maui Shots

Two versions of a stitched panorama we shot here in Maui as part of our photo tour.  The shot is looking east over the Haleakala crater about 30 minutes before sunrise.  I used a Canon 5D Mk II, EF 24mm f/1.4L, Induro C313 tripod, a Really Right Stuff BH-55 ballhead, and a RRS pano kit.

I stitched the first image with Photoshop CS4 and the second with Microsoft ICE.  Each image was processed slightly differently.

For those into the sky the Milky Way is clearly visible as is Scorpio (in the center) and the Southern Cross (at the lower right.

Leaving to shoot another sunset in a few minutes.

Fiat Lux!
