Glasshouse Mountains Tone mapped

These images of the Glasshouse Mountains, have been photographed with a Nikon D2H camera and a wide angle zoom lens.

The above image has been tone mapped using Photomatix software, this software is very good for bringing out detail and texture in the image, it also improves the range of tones by using HDR (High Dynamis Range) techniques. In the above image it has really brought out the detail in the clouds and also in the foreground scenery.

Glasshouse Mountains Panorama

The above panorama image is a stitched image to take in the extreme wide vista of this scene.

In all the images here a Nikon DX camera has been used and a zoom lens at 20mm. With a DX camera a lens in the range is the Nikon 10-24mm lens which is very nice for capturing wide vistas, another excellent lens is the Nikon 17-55mm f/2 lens which covers a longer range.

If using a FX camera with the full frame sensor then the ultimate lens is the Nikon 14-24mm f/2.0 wide zoom, this lens has superb performance for landscapes, 14mm is extremely wide on an FX sensor.

Irrespective of the lens used for landscapes like this, it is best to use a good tripod to get the sharpest images.
