The visitor Center in Death Valley National Park has had a major rebuild and remodel over the last couple of years. As part of the process the museum has been completely redone. The staff wanted a shot for a large panel on the subject of "Back country camping". This is what my wife and I came up with. These are two shots from a larger selection we gave them to work from. My wife selected the place, and I composed and shot the final results. One image from the shoot was used -- I don't know which because I haven't seen the museum yet. I also gave them freedom to crop as they saw fit, and I have no idea how they cropped or what the final aspect ratio was.

The wider shot was with a D3 with 24-70 F2.8, and the narrower view with a D700 and 70-200mm F2.8 (Version 1). All using a tripod. That is my wife in the shot.

I am curious about which version people here would have chosen for a five foot wide panel in the museum and why, as well as any comments on how this could have been shot or composed differently or better. This sort of setup shot is not something I do often, so I'm curious about what folks think...
