Drone photos NZ

Got a thin skin? Then look elsewhere. Post a link to an image that you've made, and invite others to offer their critiques. Honesty is encouraged, but please be positive in your constructive criticism. Flaming and just plain nastiness will not be tolerated. Please note that this is not an area for you to showcase your images, nor is this a place for you to show-off where you have been. This is an area for you to post images so that you may share with us a technique that you have mastered, or are trying to master. Typically, no more than about four images should be posted in any one post or thread, and the maximum size of any side of any image should not exceed 950 px.

Forum rules
Please note that image critiquing is a matter of give and take: if you post images for critique, and you then expect to receive criticism, then it is also reasonable, fair and appropriate that, in return, you post your critique of the images of other members here as a matter of courtesy. So please do offer your critique of the images of others; your opinion is important, and will help everyone here enjoy their visit to far greater extent.

Also please note that, unless you state something to the contrary, other members might attempt to repost your image with their own post processing applied. We see this as an acceptable form of critique, but should you prefer that others not modify your work, this is perfectly ok, and you should state this, either within your post, or within your signature.

Images posted here should conform with the general forum guidelines. Image sizes should not exceed 950 pixels along the largest side (height or width) and typically no more than four images per post or thread.

Please also ensure that you have a meaningful location included in your profile. Please refer to the FAQ for details of what "meaningful" is.

I am having a huge amount of fun photographing and filming with my Mavic Pro drone. Flying it is easy. Getting a good image/video is quite difficult. Here's one that turned out OK. Ligar Bay is about 15 minutes drive from Takaka, which is next to nothing. Remote but beautiful.

Some of these drones are as expensive as a good camera.

Actually, I was discussing how impressive was your image and the versatility of this gadgets and how with them it is possible to take impossible pictures and video that otherwise would require you to risk life and limb. The people I was talking to told me how intrusive they can be and how they would have liked to have a rifle handy. I told them there were rules by the aviation authority on how and where to use drones, but they both replied: you have to catch who is doing it first.

It appears one lady was minding her own natural business behind a tree in the bush, not having a toilet nearby, when she looked up and saw one hovering above. Her father was working in his farm and looked up and saw one taking pictures of him going about his business. Both people thought they were being spied on.
