    This is the 6th landscape from my 15 day driving holiday around New Zealand. It was taken at the Church of the Good Shepherd at Lake Tekapo. I'm sure a lot of you would have seen photos of this church before. This is one of my takes.

    Do you mean the one to the right of the church or the one on the left?

    Agree with what deftone said. The big one on the left.

    I don't think I have the skills to do that. I don't mind how it frames the shot.

    Yeah I totally disagree with that idea, the tree does from the picture fairly well. It also starts your eye off and leads to the church, then to the background mountains. I don't exactly find myself being drawn to the bushes and nothing but.

    If anything I would say perhaps a touch of blur on it and the foreground as well, but only a tad, and a little touch of contrast to.

    That would be a great location and backdrop to do some long exposure night photography and light paint the church.

    I think the tree is fine, although slightly detracts from the church.

    But very nice picture of a great area of NZ :thumbup:

    Yep I cant but feel it should have been framed to the right (moving to the right) so it was gone altogether.

    I cant not just see the bush/tree

    Obviously I wasnt there.. dont know whats on stage right etc just my2c.

    I wouldnt bother trying to clone it. Was more of a comment about framing.

    Nice to see it captured differently to your run of the mil shot. Great work Martin :)

    Best thing about this shot is the timing ... most people on holiday are at places like this during the day (worst kind of light, directly over head). Good work to be there at sunup(down?).

    It was sundown. It was kinda a half photography holiday so I tried to get to places in good light although some times it was just not possible (Milford Sound was an example).
