Having done some work on the Lake Matheson at Fox Glacier photo (see older post here) , I have finally retrieved the type of shot I was hoping for. The photo was taken in the late evening when there was a lot of shadow cast in the extreme right of the shot – so the trees were in total shadow. I created 3 exposures from the RAW file, one +1.65Ev, One original version with a bit of contrast and a final one with some extra saturation and some shadows -1Ev.

I might upload the sunset shots from Lake Matheson on Flickr later in the week.

Milford Sound was judged as one […]

This panorama of Mount Hamilton was taken on the way from Dunedin to Te Anau on the South Island of New Zealand. The shot was taken with a wide angle lens and then cropped in a panorama format. Bit of photshop work was requried to bring out some of the detail hidden by the shadows created by the early morning sun. This whole area is amazing, with Te Anau and Milford Sound being stunningly picturesque, especially when the weather cooperates.
