    nuts, great series of autumn pics. NZ is so beautiful I'm dying to go back again someday. And you, once again, have impressed me with your good eyes for colours and composition!

    I got the exact same shot as the first photo!! In fact, I stopped at that shop in the lower left to buy some fruits!!!

    Location : Between Cromwell and Queenstown.

    The third shot I believe is in Cromwell itself, near the toilet in the town centre. Had some nice fish and chips there.

    Thanks guys!

    Tweek,
    as you said, NZ is so beautiful, anyone with a camera can come away with wonderful shots!

    Java_Guru,
    pics 1 & 4 were around Cromwell, although for pic 1, not sure if there're any shops there cos the car was cruising along as I took the shot (and apparantly, I'm not the driver )
    pic 4 is Lake Dunstan
    pic 3 is in Twizel (pretty town btw)

    Gloriously rich autumn colours! What film were you using?

    heh... so for once, it's neither the camera nor the man behind the camera - it's what's in front of the camera

    Jokes aside, good composition + great colours.

    Nuts,

    from the pics, I believe u increased the saturation values in Photoshop to give the Velvia look?

    Lionel,
    pic 1 & 2 were just Levels & USM
    pic 3 may have played with some values during raw conversion, can't remember
    pic 4 did adjust with curves

    anyway, I think Velvia is much more saturated than that

    Zerstorer,
    its CMOS film...

    I have been hesitating for days whether or not to give my honest comments because you probably not going to like what I have to say here.

    Anyway, to listen or not, you decide...

    From your pics (except pic 2), I don't really feel or see the effort into taking the shots. They were more like "taken from where you were in or near the car" kind of typical holiday photos.

    Yes, I agree the Autumn Colours were gorgeous. I can sense that you were probably overwhelmed by the myriad of colours that you have somehow overlooked the vital principle of composition.

    nuts, I have seen better pictures from you, so I expect more from you! Your "landscape of emotion" portfolio was inspiring and left a deep impression on me ...

    Hi jas,
    honest comments are good! or even better, honest constructive comments...
    So, thanks for the criticism; even if I don't agree with certain views, it forces me to look back, re-think and re-evaluate.
    And, you are partially right. For pic 1 and 4, my mind was no longer on photography...

    yes, I can sense that... they are very unlike your style when you approached TRUE landscape photography. See that you used your secondary (or was it not?) backup digital camera, so photography at that time likely wasn't too much in your mind...
