[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Its been awhile since I've had time to spend on TL.
I just got back form Great barrier island with a few photos to share. Some hot sunny weather for those in the north.

Great Barrier Island is a remote, tranquil and untouched paradise 90km north east of central Auckland. Located at the edge of the Hauraki Gulf, Great Barrier Island is one of the most unspoilt places you’ll ever find.

Hi Tim,
Wow! Beautiful!!! Amazing depth , I feel so small! Great color , contrasts, textures!

Hello Tim

Terrific capture,the detail and clarity is excellent.
Lovely deep colours too.
The clouds look like they are just hanging there.
I wish I were there.


Hi Tim,
Long time no see :-)
Superb capture of Great barrier Island. Excellent low POV. Great clarity and brightness showing the intense colours of the New Zealand nature. Great post my friend!

Hi Tim...great landscape shot...wonderful colors and tones.


hi tim
beautiful sea-shore scene,very good colours,like the incoming waves well caught,nice detail and pov.

Hello Tim!
What a beautiful place!
Excellent colours, great detail!
Lovely sky!
Nice point of view!
Well done!
Best regards!

Hi Tim,
It is great to see such a sunny photo on a grey day like we have today. Although the photo has a sunny feel to it, it also has a great moody feel to it. The stunning clouds add a lot of beauty to the photo.
You composition is perfect, with the shore line drawing the eye into the photo stopping at the snad pit and onward to the headland. The warm light on the headland adds a wonderful glow to it. The wave action is captured superbly at just the right moment. I am really impressed with the sharpness of the photo and the details from front to back. All in all is stunner of a photo and favorite for me.

Hello Tim, a beautifully sharp shot of this lovely part of the world.
Good composition and excellent colours.
It is one of those shots where I feel as if I am really there.
Tfs, regards Jean.

Hello Tim,



What a place! I can see Great Barrier Island from our lounge, I had no idea it was that far away!

Beautiful undisturbed spot. Would love to see the horizon higher in the frame, comp would be stronger and we could be rid of that odd hole in the clouds at the top edge of the frame.

Cool shot. Did you fly with the not-so-reputable Great Barrier Air?

Hi Tim,
a beautiful shot of Great Barrier, the horizon is really sharp, obviously a really clear day. The clouds are quite dramatic and it would be a shame to crop them out to follow the rule of thirds

Oh Tim - awesome landscape. This is one place I haven't been to. My dad used to sail the ferry boats down there, but it was such a long day trip we never went with him...
You should have had excellent weather - haven't we been lucky with our summer up north here? Apart from the much needed rain.
Beautifully set out here, and the colours and details are so clear.. The low clouds give another exciting look to the scene too
Well done

Hi Tim
Very nice landscape. The sharpness is perfect. I can almost touch the sand in the foreground. Very well done
