    I took this shot a few months ago on a trip to New Zealand. I didn't really like it at the start but it has grown on me. I'm hoping to share some more shots over the next few weeks as I'm almost finished all my Uni work for the semester!

    I really like it...

    Great light... looks like a printed shot I saw once....
    Definitely one you can put up on the wall.

    Cheers

    Very nice!

    How long did you expose for? Lens? Filters?

    It was exposed for 30 seconds. I had a Lee 10 stop filter on too. It was shot on a 5D Mark II with a 17-40mm lens at 17mm.

    Pfttt. Looks excellent to me.

    I have a 10-20mm lens, and shot exclusively at 10mm. I've started to notice in my own shots, and others (this is another example), that landscape shots around the 15-18mm range are wide enough to capture someones attention because the shots wider than normal, but not wide enough its verging on distorted (10mm or fisheye type stuff) where often its not the shot - but the "effect" that people are looking at.

    Very nice, I'd be printing this asap

    Only comment I'd have is the pole on the very left hand side seems to have been darkened by your PP, I'd try and brighten it back up a bit.

    nice, Im not keen on horizon in the middle, but still like the shot - maybe shooting lower down might have made the pillers seam taller and more dominant ? Just looking and thinking.

    I think this is awesome and would have it printed LARGE!

    My only thing would be to straighten the left pole to make it vertical rather than leaning into the frame.

    Very nice, I like the vivid blue with the white. Makes it look like a different place!

    I dont mind the horizon in the middle of the frame... but rule of thirds is one to think about. I think you made it work here though. I like how the posts lead out to White island in the centre there. Nice composition.

    Overall top notch pic! It would be sell-able over here IMO...

    I should really go down there with my camera and have a shoot... really need to get myself a few ND filters though... Still no excuse seeing it's only 5 minutes down the road from me :)
