mais51: I am not convinced that this photo was taken at the time the author nominated
According to the timeanddate.com 3.05 GMT is 21.05 at Cheyenne WY surely not early morning and 9 PM is hardly blue hour

The conversion to get may be wrong. The photo was taken about 10 minutes prior to the first sunlight striking the Teton peaks. I know, because I was there. Furthermore, I would never, under any circumstance, violate the competition rules.

I think we're going to split the votes on this (I entered a very similar shot). Best of luck!

GreyGoose: What an exquisite photo. Must have been a stunning sight. The supernumerary arcs on the inside are nice. However, I find the image a bit surrealistic and disturbing because the bows appear distorted, the secondary (upper) bow more strongly so. They must be circular arcs, but look parabolic. Is it barrel distortion from the lens, or maybe a side effect of stitching?

I noticed that, and compared it to a single shot. They looked quite similar, so I don't know...

50/50. I'm not a whiz, I guess. Easily fooled.
