Location:Haleakalā, Maui, Hawaii
General location: Hawaii, USA
The Setup:Three-shot panorama of the crater from 10,000 feet up. This volcano is considered still active, but it hasn’t erupted for over 100 years. When it does, however, eruptions aren’t explosive and the lava flows slowly, so people have the opportunity to walk out of the way. The car started to struggle at 9k feet.
I did not have the tools/ability to stitch these together in 2010 but have revisited in 2013 using Hugin. These stitched together automatically with no adjustments required.
The camera & lens:Camera: Canon EOS 400D DIGITAL
Lens: Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 II @ 18mm
Exposure: 1/100" @ f/6.3, ISO 100
- Load images, auto assemble. No adjustments required
- Presence: Highlights -30, shadows +20, whites -30, blacks -50, clarity +20
- Luminance: aqua -5, blue -80 (to bring some colour back to the sky)
- Saturation: aqua -100, blues -55 (to bring that colour back from pastel!)
