Re: Pictures: Those perfect moments

That last photo has a religious, almost magic atmosphere. I hope you don't mind if I try to intensify that, like this:

pcp,

no problem. though the island has a marked tourist presence, at the ahu on Rapa Nui, you still feel as if you are in the presence of generations gone by.

Great shot. It was taken with a big angular? What lens have you used?

Re: Pictures: Those perfect moments

Paulo - this photo was actually 2 distinct photos and then I used the panorama mode of Adobe Elements to stitch them together. I use a polarizing filter, so getting wide-angle shots like this wouldn't work out. Most of the image comes from one photo; here's the single image ( photo metadata 18:31:17 NIKON D7000 with a "18.0-200.0 mm f/3.5-5.6" lens. [f/3.8, 1/10s] ISO 100 Focus 7.94m)
