Nice shot.

Damn, I need to get to NZ one of these days. It does look beautiful.

P.S. It looks like your sensor might have a bit of dust on it. (top-middle of the photo)

That's an excellent photo mate, well done. Telexstar's right, there is dust top dead centre and another at the far left but they're easily removed. You might consider cropping the bottom of the pic a bit to bring the horizon line down below half-way. I think that would complete it. This really is a superb photo though.

You do know you can remove those dust spots with software?

Aye a blower's what you need. I use a Giotto Rocket blower and it's fine. Don't be tempted to use a blower-brush because all that ends up doing is spreading more dust all over the shop.

I think all imaging software has a "clone" tool. I use ACDSee but only because it's what I'm used to. I know Elements has it and PS CS3 also has this.

I hope you don't mind -

Obviously the resolution isn't up to it but something like this looks a bit better. Ignore the 16:10 aspect ratio, that's just my "quirk".

Here it is touched-up. It's up to you how you crop it.

What editing software do you have?

Nice photo Antman!

Hope you don't have too many dust worries in the future. It does prove though you shouldn't assume that a DSLR won't have dust in it just because it's brand new! A shame, but a fact of life...

I still find a simple blower brush with the brush part removed is fine for removing most particles - and Photoshop's clone tool gets rid of existing marks...

Hey Antman, you're signature has an error I think. Should it not be an "18-135mm lens"?

We could also do with private messaging on these forums ;o)
