Hi Suze,
Three photos, all 1/400", f8, ISO 80.,
tripod used, OIS on becos I forgot to turn it off,
but I did remember to remove the lens cap on this occasion,
definitely making some progress on the technical front.

Cheers
Gazza

I miss NZ and you posts make me miss it even more! I hope to go back for a few weeks in August and do a bit of photography and skiing. You really dont realise how great NZ is until you leave it. Australia is full of things that want to bite you, in the weekend while bushwalking I almost stood on a red bellied black snake and walked into numerous massive spiders!
Great photo, you have really captured the natural beauty of the place.

Great pano Gazza. Absolutely Stunning. That is a shot you'd get printed poster size (or bigger)to hang on the wall for all to see. Simply Beautiful.

Question about metering if you don't mind - Which method did you use for the shots? The reason i ask is that the few times i've taken pano shots, using manual settings locked for all so every shot is the same, I still get mixed results with the way they come out. E.G. sky lightin one shot then dark in the next. I assume the metering is the only thing i'm doing wrong???I'm still trying to learn so any help or tips you can give would be appreciated very much.

hi Hazza, I used the software that came with the FZ20,
Panorama Maker 3.5, and the shot was taken near Glenorchy,
at the head of Lake Wakatipu. LOTR trilogy scenery.

hi Brenno9,

I know exactly what you mean,

spot metering at the skyline and making an extra exposure or two for the centre frame that you may or may not require, also keeping the overlaps very generous when shooting will help reduce the skys' exposure differential.

and, as is often said, take more pics and good luck,
