    As others have said - this is a wonderful picture... landscape photography is largely about being in the right place at the right time with the right kit.

    Most (wide angle) landscapes, I consider, would have been better taken with a longer focal length... did you take (or consider taking) alternative versions of this with longer lenses?

    What shutter speed did you use ¿I am wondering if the reflections might have been clearer with a shorter exposure?

    Re: Fun with MF images

    Thank you everyone for the kind replies.

    Dick, I did shoot different focal lengths a bit earlier before the colors really started to pop. If I want tighter framing than I have to put my DB on the phase body and all that. I've really tried to slow my shooting down lately because often times I don't get to enjoy the scene with my own eyes because I'm fiddling with camera parts. There was not a lot I could do about smoothing the water out due to ducks coming and going and breezes. Shot was @ 1/15, f/11, iso 50.

    Are you suggesting shooting a tighter crop with a longer lens or longer lens/stitching?

    I love the image and the immensity and grandeur it portrays ... I can easily envision it as a 8 or 10 foot wide print ... breathtaking if it has the resolution to hold up (which with the p45 probably would be pretty good).

    Either or both.

    It is a lovely image as it is, and stitched and printed 16 foot wide it would be awesome - partly as you could approach the picture and enjoy "pictures within the picture".

    With a 200, 300 or 400mm lens you could also get wonderful pictures in atmospheric conditions that gave you the definition in the distance.

    Using a longer lens only affects FoV as captured on the sensor. It won't change the perspective/compression/atmospheric conditions, it just changes how much of the scene is recorded. Stitching with a longer lens will yield an identical image with perhaps more detail. Shooting smaller FoV with a telephoto will also not yield any substantial difference than just cropping this image, other than detail.

    While the additional detail may offer some additional depth and clarity, it really would only be visible in large prints, certainly not in a web jpeg, but the overall image would be basically the same regarding perspective/atmospheric conditions/compression.

    Yes, it would not even change de DoF, at same f-stop and same scale of reproduction.

    Some really beautiful images here - Macoberly and PeterA.

    I recieved my IQ180 back just today - its cold and windy here in South East Queensland today, but still had to get out and try the new back. The two attached images are with the 645DF using the SK 55 LS lens.

    MF is mostly about detail... but a longer lens would not give you proportionally more real res, if res (in the far distance) was limited by haze.

    We were talking about 12 foot enlargements - not web jpegs.

    Stitching can give less improvement than the increase you might hope for from the increase in pixel count... due to straightening pan-and-stitch images or decreased lens edge res with shift-and-stitch images... but my initial comment was mostly about getting a narrower angle of view with increased detail.

    I think taste is an important point. I really like both, wide and closer landscapes. It always depends on the subject. I would not change anything about the shot.

    I try to stitch when ever possible. It just gives me a way to print large and show amazing details even in 1,5 by 3 meters.

    Yes - I did know that DOF is very similar for the same reproduction ratio - and this is mostly relevant for macro, but I have just put the numbers into the Rags DOF calculator, and, at 20 miles, the DoF for 75mm square with a 210mm lens is almost identical to that for 50mm square with a 70mm lens.

    But the near focus limit is 0.114 miles, so, in this picture, with no important subject matter that close, you could manage without tilt to get the foreground in focus!

    No argument with any of this, I was just trying to clarify your original point which sounds like it was about alternative compositions more than anything else.

    Challenge with MF to get those tighter compositions, compression, and atmospheric effects etc. is there are not many good lens options.

    I agree with you about the lens options. My 105-210mm can be a big challenge to get good focus sometimes.

    I am loving these images.

    I think Joe McNally said, if you want to take some great photos, put your self infront of something real interesting - or something to that effect.

    You certainly put yourself in front of some great material.

    Plane? What plane?

    We covered that road three times in the last three days. Left Lahaina at 2am to get the sunrise image. I had to stop several times and I had never had a problem with motion sickness before. Something about that road in the dark.

    Went the back way once which is not bad starting from the crater.

    Thank you Mal.

    It is beautiful here on Maui in the area around Hana. I always freak a little at the start of a trip until I get a good image or two in the bag. Now I can relax and enjoy the rest of the trip. Most of Maui is like a desert, the crater forces the moisture out on the Northeast quarter if the island. I'm headed to Kuai which is supposed to be more green and pristine.
