I have been having a debate over this picture for the past few months now, some say it is, a, painting, a, meteorite hit or a wow factor.



The photographer Andre Wagner plays with the elements. A gloving fire in Abel Tasman National Park New Zealand transforms the rainforest into a mystical landscape


I have been looking at Andre's pictures for a while now and I think most of his photographs, are breathtaking to say the least.
Have a look at, his work.

What is it ?

Thanks

It looks to me like remenats of a campfire but who is to say. It is rather beautiful though and something to ponder at.

www.doc.govt.nz... Nice photo! Flag for you, but I visited this thread (hope its a link), and theirs no mention of anything volcanic in this park. However this may be something to just open up and not mentioned on the site. Thanks for sharing.

cool pic
i live in new zealand
the picture looks real
the camp fire is obscured by rocks
but that is what the national park looks like in some places
we in new zealand have
rain forests
deserts
volcanos
mountains
and some of the best marine reserves in the world
we are blessed with a country that has to be seen
to be beleived

xploder come for a visit and stay and you will see for yourself

Looks like one of these Camp Fires people have



Camp site with small fire inside some rocks, Camera filter tweaked to a bit as well?

Too bad its not a bit clearer...may have been something interesting.

Here's a better quality version of the pic in question.

Beautiful pic, but it's not natural. The artist either doctored the photo or lit a fire or placed a light in the hole.

I think that this picture is fake! If this was truly a lava pit in a national park/forest, you would at least like to see some more pictures of what the pit looks like much closer.

Furthermore, a professional photographer has access to photo-editing software...this could lead to the added "glowing effects" from the pit.

I also think some characteristics of the pit are missing, such as steam from the pit itself. I also made some circles around areas that I feel need to be investigated. Check them out and tell me what you think!

Because its not lava - Its a fire - In a hole.

Camera's capture interesting images if you leave the shutter open.

Even though the light may not have been captured in a snapshot, If the shutter is kept open on the camera, it will show all gathering points of light.

I hope you are joking with your analysis. I could take a macro shot of any part of the Op picture, and it is like another world.. Close up the details are fantastic. Thanks for your comments.

There we go...correct poster


I know about shutter and all that wonderful camera technology stuff. I merely responded to the TITLE OF THIS THREAD....something to do with Volcanic activity?!!?

So if the OP intended to talk about a camp fire or something like that, they should of just put that in the title instead. I am just dispelling the title to the thread.

Beautiful work - I think he simply placed an orange glow lamp next to the big rock on the ground and it is casting a glow.

You was right the 1st time around, I have changed the title of the thread. Still, a beautiful picture. I have a mural on my wall of the picture. Thanks for kicking my butt. Nothing to see here, move along now.

Goodnight all.

Thank you for the correction...pheuw!

Now I can make a comment about the picture. I really like the glowing effects regardless if any extra enhancement was done. But I have to say that if there truly was a little fire, either:

a) flames would be shooting up a little higher to get the light reflection of nearby objects
b) sparks or smoke would at least be somewhat visible
c) none of the above

Still, if you use your imagination (no pun intended on the word "still"), the picture has a bit of a relaxing feel to it and I like the photographers art!
Therefore, you get a *S*

Late response, but it's not natural because the artist created it himself. Is that hard to understand?

I don't think its been 'doctored' so to speak (i.e. fake) but there has been some processing done to enhance the image. I can get the same effect with a wireless flashgun with an orange/red gel on.

Regardless of genuine or not its a stunning image and the artist should be proud of that one


Better quality image as linked above:


Bit of detective work on the image, shows that the entire image has been 'enhanced' but no specific hot spots of editing done:

KC Late response, but it's not natural because the artist created it himself. Is that hard to understand?

I can guarantee the picture is 100% authentic, I have a 270 x 194cm mural on my wall and the detail up close is amazing, it is obviously a photograph. I am not home tonight, but I will take a few shots 'up close' and post them tomorrow.

Thanks Skywatcher2011

Yep,no smoke, no flames and no sparks. It is truly a wonderful picture, it almost looks unreal, I am not sure if it has been enhanced or not. Anyway, It is nice to get away from all the doom and gloom and see, just how beautiful this planet really is. It is only us humans that spoil it.
