I shot this video in two days in a recent trip to Maui while I was exploring around the island and especially the epic Haleakalā crater region.

Since my first shot in the lava fields wouldn't turn out so well, as I was either losing details in the skies or on the fields, I decided to use HDR.
And while I was at it, I decided to shoot the whole thing in HDR.

I'm not sure wether it was necessary for every shot but it was there so I used it...It's a short video but it took a while to render considering each image comprises 3 photos. (proper exposure, 2/3 up and 2/3 down)

My crappy (made in China) intervalometer also started acting funny and eventually wouldn't work at all so I manually shot at least two thirds of the timelapses, which not only created some jitter but also made me miss a frame here and there which I had to recreate with twixtor.
Ok enough complaining, image hunting around Maui wasn't so bad! ;)

Hmm…it looks like things are taking a while to load. Try again?
