The volcano at the heart of Lombok island, Indonesia, erupted in 2009. I ran up to camp on the crater rim and shot a series of time lapses. I was lucky to get a clear view of the eruption through the steam and clouds that often obscure the summit of this 3,726-meter mountain.
Sadly, this time lapse is a victim of the dreaded Nikon aperture flicker. GBDeflicker (http://www.granitebaysoftware.com) has been a help -- eliminating the side-to-side dance of the histogram through time, but leaving a vertical jumpiness to the curve that I'd like to dampen. I also face some contrast shifts that I'd like to smooth. Ideas??
