we were lucky that the weather was fine during our stay in the national park.  Here is another sunrise shot at a different spot.

Best,

Excellent images from both cameras. They deserve to be printed and displayed in a nice place in your home.

Choi,

What a remarkable landscape, I am so jealous that you are able to travel to such amazing places, I have to satisfy my wanderlust through your excellent photos.

Now, two questions:

1. Why Iso 1250 Choi on the second photo ???? and why f4?

One misnomer about landscape photography I have found, is that things do actually move outdoors so fast shutter speeds and wider apertures are not always a bad thing in terms of freezing things like ripples on water, grass etc. Was this your thinking here?

Dear D,

Both are very unique cameras, and the beauty is that they can share the same set of lenses.

Yes, I am thinking of printing them up to A2 with my Epson 3885.

Best,

Choi

thank you for your kind words.

The 2nd photo was shot handheld with A7 under its sweep panorama mode, so the setting is determined by the camera.

If its my choice, I would rather shoot with a lower ISO and smaller aperture with the use of a tripod.

Best,

Choi

The pano function of the A7 is quite fun to use.

We stayed at the hotel on the island. You can see it from the photos, so it didn't take us too long to walk up to the spot to shoot.

Best,

Choi

thrilling images in both posts, Choi
In reply to Choi, 2 months ago

the Southern Hemisphere agrees with you

very impressed with the Sony's ability in your hands, particularly given that this was taken at higher ISO ...was the pano done using a feature of the Sony?

the colors and in particular in the first, the luminance are thrilling

gorgeous & as long has been known, early birds get great light

sorry of the late reply as bandwidth is limited for the last couple of days.

Yes, in certain ways, the Southern Hemisphere is more attractive than its counterpart photographically...:-))

The sweep panorama function is really a fun and joy to use.  Lately I have played with the time-lapse (an additional app.) too.

But getting up so early for 3 mornings consecutively can be quite tiresome....:-))

Best,

Choi
