History

Some falls in Mt Field National Park, Tasmania
I was browsing though some of +Matt Glastonbury's great imagery of Tasmania, in particular this one https://plus.google.com/100022806374728014874/posts/LAw9K8vV3L2 when it jogged my memory of trip down there several years ago.

This was back when I was pretty clueless on how to use a camera but one thing I did know what to do was take pano's and vertical ones featured every now and then, more often than not they would not stitch correctly 🙁 however, step forward a few years and I now have the knowledge (and software) to beat them over the head a bit more to achieve what I originally saw 🙂

This image was simply two images stitched vertically, originally never even processed, much like quite a few images that sit in my library unfortunately.

Anyway, i remember this trip well, I had just bought myself a new lens (the Nikkor 17-55mm f2.8) and a circular Polarizer to go with it – both of which I still use and abuse regularly 🙂 In hindsight a UWA lens would have been more helpful, but hey thats life.

2 frame Vertical Panorama.
Exif/setup data:
D80 (yep thats right..my trusty old D80) coupled with the Nikkor 17-55mm f2.8 @17mm
Aperture: f/13 and Shutter Speed: 8 seconds for the top part and 10 seconds for the bottom part
Out front : HOYA screw in circular polariser
Probably lucky it was taken in RAW, i mixed and matched during this trip 🙂

  1. That's the ever beautiful Russel Falls, albeit only half of the falls is visible, nice shot none the less…

    It's a shame that there are trees growing out of the middle as it used to be spectacular when you could see straight up the middle like when I first saw it some 30yrs ago….
