View Full Version : NZ Panorama
December 12th, 2004, 09:54 AM
Was in New Zealand for half a year and took 'round 1000 shots there. Thought I would share some of them.
I hope they are not too small... Maybe I can post them as links in higher resolution later.
Ok here we go, I took this one at a beach in Whangarei... Buffallo Beach I think...
The View from Mount Ruapehu. What u can see is the place where Mordor was shot.
One Lake on the south island.

Wonderful pictures Karim. I wish I could visit New Zealand one day too. I bought the Extended The Return of the King DVD Box a few days ago, and the landscapes are just breathtaking.

that last one has a great composition!
great contrast, superb shot!
the first is quite nice too
the sedond is not so hot for me, it has to do with the fact that the lighter portion of the shot seems wedged or forced between two bleak, drak halves which kind of throws off the balance, maybe if the shot were to have been zoomed in upon a little more to crop out more of the dark and less interesting clouds and gain some of the detail from the rays of light
great work man, keep posting :teeth:

Karim - have you got anymore?
The second is breath taking to say the least. Real nice pics.
Will eventually make my way over to NZ god willing, I have tons of family there I have never met before...:)
Please, if you have anymore, post!

Obrigado my friend!
Yeah actually you're right... but I'm so addicted to clouds hahahhaha
Nah to be honest I didn't took these pics to show them. The're all digital and I just wanted to have some memories... back home I was like "hossa they're quite nice!... post'em!
Get moving! The Flight really sucks (even though Quantas has really good Service *thumbs up*), but it's absolutely worth it!
I saw that you have one of these Maori Bone Carving necklaces. Now I know why hahahah
hm.. some more... actually the ones above are my best shots, but OK I'll try:
Auckland - City of Sails! View from Mount albert I think.... dunno
A beach somewhere in Abel Tasman National Park. Shit these are the best beaches ever! Really white, really big, really empty! Fucked this one up because the Focus is on the tiny bush. d'oh!
Moi on Shakespeare Cliff near Coromandel. Hella walk up there, worth it though. Not a really good picture just posing ^^
I'll post some more later. No time right now.

man, I really want to go there.
You might want to play around with where you put the horizon in future pictures - mostly these ones seem to split the picture in half.

I really like your work! I'm with my sister, about the horzions being in the middle (and I really want to go there). On the second one of your last post, I like the focus on the bush, because the rest isn't insanely out of focus and it gives something more to the pic. Besides that picture reminds me of a travel brochure or soemthign... Man it looks gorgeous! Keep up the good work! :)

Yeah you're absolutely right. never recognized that... d'oh!
@molly the second
hm.. that's a way to look at it ^^
A lake and a mountain... Usual south island scenery hahaha
the same again but I like the shape of the mountains better in this one....
This is a bushwalk somewhere near Mt. Ruapehu. I had a picture of a crazy street like this but it seems to be lost....
