    These shots are more from my 15 day driving holiday around New Zealand. Queenstown is a great little place!

    I have a few places in my house where a panoramic print would suit, so I intentionally set out to compose and crop some shots to 1:3. Here are three panorama's from a sunset and sunrise at Queenstown

    First shot is very haloed over the mountains.

    Third shot is the best IMO, I like the fact it's a bit lighter.

    I like the first one the best, it looks like something from LOTR, like actually a set, the little town looks amazing.

    The third one is still nice too, great colour in the sky.

    Thanks Matt. I was just thinking earlier we should catch up some time. I have just started back at uni so am pretty busy. I'll send you an email some time.

    very nice set - hoping to get to NZ soon......

    All 3 are very nice - the third, being lighter has a slightly greater appeal - but the others are awesome too.

    Oh - and they are 3:1 crops - so thats points in my book automatically :)

    Lovely shots again. The first shot with the town and the mountains as the backdrop is really nice except for the mountain halo which I find detracts from the image.

    The pick of the shots for me would be the thrd shot. The colours and composition (and the clouds) to me are spot on. A truly beautiful shot. WD.
