Deux moitiés ne font pas toujours un tout

I am in a mood for Shel Silverstein, so here you go:

As far as this diptych, I made three images from this spot at this moment. I had meant to do a bottom portion in focus, then a top portion in focus and combine them into a panoramic. But then I threw in an out-of-focus exposure as well. Once I got back stateside the out-of-focus photo drew my attention, so I figured, why not combine it with an in focus exposure. It surely isn't the standard way of assembling a diptych like this (which is kind of exactly why I do it). And sometimes, even when two pieces seem like they would fit well together one of them often finds itself just a bit out of focus. Perhaps it is better that way.

By the way, even though it will be slightly redundant, I am going to show each of those images singly as well, because they take on slightly different character by themselves, separated from the whole. Hmmm, imagine that...
