Huka Falls - Taupo

Huka Falls - Taupo

Photo Information
Huka Falls in Taupo NZ.

Used a 10 stop filter and took 9 shots. Then got Photoshop to put them all together for me. Wanted a wider field of view than my kit lens could provide.

Think it worked ok and it was a beautiful day. Was pushed for time so had to rush a bit, but had fun trying!

Really nice, curious, does putting the various pics together make any other differance than slowing the shutter speed? still trying to pic up things and this might be something i can try.

Cheers,
Ben

Sorry I should have explained that better...

The pictures weren't all the same, they were the scene in a grid of nine separate shots: lower left middle and right, middle left middle and right, and higher sky left middle and right. This allowed me to have a much wider field of view than my standard kit lens would allow normally.

Hopefully that is a bit clearer? Thanks

Great colours and tones, looks like all the water is disappearing down a sink hole

Depending on your model of Pentax DSLR you can even do something similar in camera using the sensor shift abilities. That is useful if you have limited ability to physically move backwards, and is limited as to how much extra width you can get, but it is pretty cool all the same
