New Zealand – Otika Gorge on the South Island

This picture I have taken on the road through Arthurs pass on the South Island on New Zealand. It is one of the most beautiful roads I have ever driven on. This is Otika Gorge. Before the bridge was build, you had to drive this insane road this picture was taken on. Actually you can kind of see were it goes, if you look closely at the photo on the right hand side.
Technically, this is made from three exposures, with 3 EV steps between and then I made two tonemapped versions, giving me altogether 5 images that I merged together in Photoshop. And at last I did a little filtering and sharpening, without removing the dreamy impression.

Sydney is a great city, that I would have loved to spend more time in.
