Mirror reflection of Mitre Peak in Milford Sound, Fiordland National Park. South Island, New Zealand.

It’s / (Fortnightly Foto?) time again.

This week we return to Fiordland for a majestic morning view of Mitre Peak & Milford Sound.

Apologies for the gratuitous use of alliteration…

    Why do you say that it’s a great shot as long as there is no photoshop involved. Does using photoshop somehow invalidate the image, make it less of a great shot?

    If Todd used Photoshop to ‘develop’ the RAW files, rather than letting the camera ‘develop’ them to jpegs in-camera, does that make it less of a great shot?

    How about if he’d cropped it slightly? Or maybe adjusted the contrast? Does that make it less of a great shot?

    However, knowing Todd, he spent hours in Photoshop on this image. This is just the same as the way that an old-school photographer spent time in the darkroom, printing the image. After all, nobody can sensibly look at negatives, and nobody can look at the digital equivalent, RAW files.

    If that makes him less of an artist in your eyes then I am sure he can live with that.

    Wow!!
    I guess its about getting up early in the morning – maybe I’ll just stay warm and let you two do the hard yards for us all, Todd.

    Agree beautox. After all, photographers have been using the best available techniques from the birth of the camera.
    No matter. I will just enjoy a beautiful scene captured stunningly well.

    It’s amazing how smooth that nasty sandfly-infested little lagoon can get when it’s still huh? Makes my skin crawl just looking at it.

    Magnificent photo as always, chap!

    These photos that always show it on a perfect day seem like a completely different Milford Sound than the one I saw. When I was there, there was 100% overcast with black clouds down around the tops of the background mountains, although the summit of Mitre peak was still visible. Made the place very brooding and monochrome and awesome. Dark forested cliffs dropping vertically into deep black water, just a place that cares nothing for people and makes no allowances for our needs.
