    Hi All,

    I believe this is my first post in here, short introduction, I've been into photography for about 10 years now, landscape photography is what got me interested all those years ago. Hadn't shot any landscape for the last 3 or 4 years until my recent trip to NZ, and re-found what I really do enjoy shooting :)

    C&C welcome, cheers

    Nice.

    You don't use a very wide angle lens do you? I like compression in the shots.

    Thanks for the comments all :) Dan, you are correct, 3 and 4 are the only wide-angle shots, from memory 1 and 6 were shot with a 60mm Macro lens, the rest are all 80-200mm.

    All of these were taken with a Nikon D300 with various lenses and filters.

    quick answer...everywhere, seriously, if you're driving there's plenty to see on the south island. The majestic views and the long white cloud will have you pulling over to take photos every 15mins!!

    This is true, we spent 3 weeks on the South Island in a hire car, so we were pulling over all the time whenever we turned a corner to see another spectacular view ! Photogenic places I would recommend are anywhere inland, especially Lake Tekapo and Lake Wanaka, Mt Cook NP, and the Otago Peninsula on the coast.

    Wow, 5,6,7,8 is just amazing! The contrast in the scene, both lighting and environment is beautifully captured :thumbup:

    Nice and sharp I like them... can I ask? did you bump up the contrast a fair amount in all this shots? What post processing went on?

    Awesome shots I love them all, can't really pick a favourite. What is the round rock in #4?
