A cheerful view of Waiheke

A very pleasing panorama of these boats behind all this greenery and beautiful blue flowers.
You made use of a natural frame to your presentation and obtained a resonable DOF with f/9.5 and leaving the blue flowers in slight out of focus.
I like the effect!
Beautiful sky and very natural colors.
It's a beautiful place to visit Hans - I did a day trip to Waiheke a few years back (well before my days here on TL) and did the clifftop walk around the bit of island near the harbour..
You've captured it well, nice view, great colour - if anything I'd say that the flowers are slightly out of focus but maybe that's just my eyes!!
A sweet glimpse of the lake. I especially like the blue agapanthus (I think that's what they are) on the f/g. The nautical features of the lake are emphasized with the distant petite boats, there is good depth. Regards.

Hello Hans! Hello my neighbour in gallery today :)

Flowers on the foreground make it!

Hello Hans - With all the cold winter shots, it's nice to see a summer view! Excellent depth of field and beautiful colors and framing.
Have a good day,

We are enjoying nice warm days again like this one Hans, the humidity is back, we had warm balmy rain yesterday and going to be fine today.
Nice composition here with a little peek at the sail boats.

This is so typically Waiheke, the type of glimpse you see all over the island. Good that you had a nice sunny day to capture it.
I'm surprised that the composition works so well - you've forced the viewer to be looking dead-centre of the frame, and yet it is a successful formula here.

Nou Hans, hier kunnen we, wij althans, voorlopig nog alleen maar van dromen ! Mooie plaat, mooi van kleur en belichting.
Naar mijn idee staan die, overigens prachtige, paarse bloemen in de weg ! Tenminste, die meest linkse belet me het zicht op het water. Nou ja, het is dan ook een pest. :-)

That's wonderful, Hans, the view, the flowers - the sunshine and the nice clouds.
A fantastic moment captured in a good shot, thanks - some day I realy have to go to New Zealand ...

Ahhh me favorite color flowers! How beautiful Hans! Very nice work on this. I like how you made the fit in the shot so well, making them the focal point, but yet a beautiful background also! Good job!

this dense summer feeling is nice,
deep green trees and lovely violet flowers make attractive summer show stage in it,
the color of sea looks like blue/green jewel,
wonderful summer picture, thank you,

Lovely to see the Agapanthus flowers - they are in full bloom now!!! You also have Pohutukawa trees and mangroves too. The Pohutukawas are starting to bloom now - and look even better than last year...
Nicely composed image my friend - wish you were here again

They say a weed is simply a flower in a wrong place and I guess if a particular flower is prolific then it is easier for it to be in the wrong place
Beautiful flower They almost look metalic blue Beautiful composition
