The Good Sheperd
Kudos for having the patience to wait for the tourists to go - it's not easy!
I like your capture here, the wide angle delivers a dramatic view. Not sure how I feel about the very central placement ... a crop on the left to de-centre the church might also hide that tilted horizon?

The quality of this shot is excellent from the leading line of the path, through the well chosen angle of the building, to the superb exposure and sharp details.
Like Rew, my only suggestion for improvement would be a less central composition.
That said, this is a cracker!!

Well managed exposure in this landscape shot.
Excellent POV with a stunning FG and a spectacular sky!
Details are superb on the church!
Nice lead-into picture and composition is amazing.

Belle présentation de cette vieille église de pierre qui semble encore en bon état.
Le détail est tellement beau qu'on dirait que vous avez traité votre image en HDR.

a great capture of this NZ icon, the light on the stonework brings out the detail and colour

I like this composition here, the wonderfull church and the texture of the wall. The POV is excellent, the frame splendid and the colors soo natural. The architecture view and the beautifull sky, very nice composition.
My best regards.

Your war birds collection is terrific but I must comment on this having been here also. I loved it back in 2003 when I first saw it and when I saw it again last week, I actually hated the place - and this was even at 5,30am in the morning when this other idiot of a photographer decided to stand in front of me and another gentlemen who had travelled from Northland and take his shots which was the cherry on the cake ;-). The water was not as nice due to the lack of colour IMO, the water level itself has gone down and then what you encountered... bus loads of tourists - and I must say the litter was a bit obvious too. You've done well, nice natural colours and perspectives. There are not many other POVs you can get from here and we can see it is dry due to lack of snow in the mountains. Lovely cloud formations, maybe back in winter it will be better here but im in no rush to go back.
