Sunset Over the Karst Formations and River by taffy

Sunset Over the Karst Formations and River

First, a huge thank you for putting my fisherman photo at the top of TT this past week - I'm excited and honored to see it there!
I'm still working through the hundreds of photos from our China trip. This was from the sunset hike (involving what felt like millions of stone steps up the mountainside which of course was worth it for this view!). Not surprising, Junko and I - standing next to each other and sharing thoughts on settings and lenses -- have many similar images. Our shots from here differ a bit due to time of the shot and mine is taken with the lens pointing a little further down so cropping out the sun in favor of foreground. This one was stitched using 3 overlapping images in LR6 software. See Junko's image at : http://365project.org/jyokota/365/2016-11-09
This is so high one would think you are in a balloon! Great definition of that huge distance too!

I know it's pollution but the way the pollution impacts the rays taking the eye into the photo is fabulous

Another gorgeous photo! Learning from your panoramic techniques. So interesting to see how you bring the foreground more into prominence this way.

Reminds me of taking wet beach sand and letting drip down to form little hills.
