    Some sunset shots from Botany Bay including a 10-frame panorama. All taken with an Olympus E-P1 and Voigtlander 25mm f/0.95 stopped down to get a good depth of field.

  4. All 3 are great but really like #2. I would be proud to hang any one of them on my wall.

    Superb pictures there. I had the "pleasure" of visiting this place a couple of years ago. All attempts to take any decent pictures were killed off by the relentless onslaught of flies trying to get in to every orifice on my body.

    No flys but lots of mosquitoes. I normally wear a long sleaved tee-shirt but for some reason wore a normal one. The mozzies went for my elbows as obviously that is the most tasty part and I am only now just starting to no longer itch where they bit.

    Worth braving the mozzies for.

    Love the panorama..what software did you use?

    Also, did you have any issues with the water movement while stitching?

    I used Photoshop CS5. Water movement is a problem with long exposures as it tends to come out uneven at the joins. A little cloning helped disguise the worst of that but I didn't do the best job of that as I knew I would be reducing it for online viewing.
