Amazing shots! Great work! I really liked #1 and #3
By the way, any idea on why the water on the right looks brown in #5? And what about the red rocks on #6 and #7? Looks really awesome :D

Some great shots adam !

The ones of the rocks would work well with some HDR ???? as would your first and second shot with the strong contrast with the green blue and sky or the logs, water and dark foliage.

looks like you had some nice weather ! :D

Many thanks piero and rob!

Piero: About the water in #5....I'm not entirely sure why it turned such a deep brown. That picture, along with the ones of the red rocks, were taken at the Bay of Fires. The brown water actually looks like a small stagnant river from the beach:

I think that it's turned so brown from the soil towards the forest, and the rocks. Don't quote me on that though. The red on the granite boulders is actually from lichen...it turns bright red and orange from rain. Pretty neat huh?

Rob: Had great weather, except for my first day there. Was pretty rainy, and too bad bc since visibility was low, some of my shots from that day weren't as nice as they could have been. #1 is from that day though. I agree with the HDR, but I'm not really sure how to do HDR yet...since I only have a work laptop out here, I haven't gone too much into PP except for the RAW software that came with my camera. This being the case, I haven't gone out and purposely shot all different exposures of the same scene. Plus...no tripod yet, soon though! Don't really want to travel with one.

BTW, all booked and ready for NZ, and booked the overnight Doubtful Sound cruise! Flying out Sunday, pretty excited :mrgreen:

Haha. Great stuff.

It's pretty wet here in NZ at the moment but that will change. Doubtfull sound will be ace.

As for the HDR your camera can do auto exposure bracket shots (AEB) have a quick look in your manual. This takes 3 shots 1 normal exposure, 1 under 1 over the first step in HDR !

If you want some more tips then send me a pm or have a look on the forum under HDR.

As for your shots I like the second batch and the river winding away, it leads the eye really well!

Enjoy NZ!

It is easy to create hdr photos with the help of online hdr editor or hdr software. First, you are supposed to set AEB as what ribbon 44 said to obtain at least 3 photos shot at the same site with different exposure value. Then you can input them into certain hdr software or online hdr editor, which will do all the work for you after one click. I used HDR Darkroom weeks ago. It supports different RAW files offered most cameras. One tool you may like is named alignment, which may lend you some help when shooting without tripod.
