Ormiston Gorge Waterhole - HDR
This panorama was taken in early December, 2013. Eight shots were made and then built up to a 360 degree HDR panorama. Ormiston Gorge is one of the main attractions of the West MacDonell Ranges National Park. This national park is full of gorges, permanent and temporary waterholes, walking tracks and one can observe different geological features of the area. HDR processing was applied to the raw pictures and I use a Nikon D5100, a Samyang 8mm fisheye lens and a Panosaurus with tripod for panorama shots.

There are no kangaroos in Austria.
We're talking about Australia, the world's smallest continent. That being cleared up, let's dive right in!
Australia is a sovereign state under the Commonwealth of Nations, which is in turn overseen by Queen Elizabeth the Second, by the Grace of God, Queen of Australia and Her other Realms and Territories, Head of the Commonwealth.
The continent was first sighted and charted by the Dutch in 1606. Captain James Cook of Britain came along in the next century to claim it for Britain and name it "New South Wales." Shortly thereafter it was declared to be a penal colony full of nothing but criminals and convicts, giving it the crap reputation you may have heard at your last cocktail party.
This rumor ignores 40,000 years of pre-European human history, especially the Aboriginal concept of Dreamtime, an interesting explanation of physical and spiritual reality.The two biggest cities in Australia are Sydney and Melbourne. Sydney is more for business, Melbourne for arts. But that's painting in very broad strokes. Take a whirl around the panoramas to see for yourself!
