    Originally thought: 'Sunday in Norway?' - ahem... I now sit corrected.

    Although it appears that quite a few have 'viewed' your efforts - I am
    amazed no-one has yet commented - miserable lot!

    Prefer the first image - lovely view of ferns and those lichen covered
    rocks... very nice indeed.

    Well done. And, er - apols for 'Norway'.


    cheers

    nice photo's you've shot
    but to me the composition seems a bit random.
    For example at the first shot I see some beautiful sunlight at the left edge of the image, I feel like that light in this type of shot would have done some really beautiful things.
    But nevertheless the moving water looks really well done

    Hi Steve,

    I tend to agree with Jeroen about the compositions; the first looks like a re-frame or re-crop might yield a better image and the second is (to my mind) lacking a definite subject.

    Sorry, that sounds very negative

    I have made a start on viewing your (quite significant) website and I think there are LOTS of better images there, I must think they're good as I intend to go back and make sure I don't miss any! (I still have the tab open)

    Hope that helps,

    Thanks to all for your comments,

    All constructive criticism gratefully accepted (I've got broad shoulders). These photo's were 'grabbed' on the way down from a 2 hour hike up a very steep muddy track to look at this:

    Sunday afternoon in Fiordland

    No excuse I know but I was shooting from the wooden gantry and access was limited but I hear your comments on the compositions and will work on that in the future. I was in fact more interested in getting the water 'right' as that is my addiction at the moment

    Thanks Bunter,
    Yes probably could have named it a bit better, keep forgetting that this is a global forum and 'my' Fiordland isn't the only one around

    Thanks for your comments too, much appreciated, I'm happy with most of the shots but will be going back to this spot to try and really nail it.

    Hi Steve

    Well, I have to say it is entirely understandable why you would negotiate a 2 hour climb,
    after seeing that picture! Breathtaking view - and one can almost 'feel' the stillness...
    good of you to share this.

    Very much looking forward to seeing your next efforts when you get to re-visit the area.
    And in it's own way, the wooden walkway is pretty impressive as well - access blending
    with the surroundings makes for a nice change.

    BTW - the 'Norway' thing was my gaff, so I wouldn't worry too much... and on reflection,
    I'm not all that fond of Vikings anyway.


    cheers

    Seems fairly valid to me, and you did succeed with the water

    Cheers,
