Thanks Dougie and Bryan.

Panoramas were stitched using Photomerge in photoshop CS, which works some times and some times does not. The Emerald Bay shot was 3 photos stitched together by hand in photoshop.

BTW, Auckland, hmm, lucky you.

Great shots. I really liked them. The twig shot - The snow doesn't really work there...might have to find an exposure solution for it.

The twig shot

The twig shot - would you agree the snow is blown? If that was your desired effect than you've done it. But if not, the next time you're faced with a snow situation like that you may need to meter differently or something.

It's well known that snow can be tricky. I've heard of a tip that I tried once on some snow. And that was to meter off of the blue sky and the snow should be properly exposed. Just a thought

Thanks, in fact I ended up with a -1EV underexposure, I pushed the exposure to blow the snow :). It is pretty close to what I saw.

Without EV adjustment, snow under-exposes 1 EV (even with 3D color matrix metering).

Right. I think that's why snow often ends up gray rather than white. I think it's also the reason why it was suggested to me to meter from the sky rather than the snow.
