    Milford to Dusky

    Just back from 2 weeks sailing around the Fiordland coast. It was an eventful trip with boat malfunctions and weather to contend with but fun all the same and some pretty good scenery too.

    Hello Steve,

    Very nice shots, My wife and I were on that boat about 3 weeks ago, however there was only half the amount of water comming down that waterfall.

    Beautiful scenery steve. That waterfall would make an awesome pano.

    Beautiful. Number 3 is my favorite. Love the layers of mountains. Looks like there was some pretty heavy swells that day. Nicely done.

    Number 3 is awesome! I love number 5 too; very moody.

    These are all great. They are too good to pick a favourite, but I do like the mood of #3. #6 is the only one that doesn't really have any impact for me.

    Looks like a nice place to be

    Steve

    The great swell of public opinion (!) is moving towards #3 as the 'stand out'. Like everyone else, I think the whole set is beautiful. For me, however, the 'stand outs' are #1 amd #2. I put them in the same sategory as that one you posted a while back that you took, I think, whilst on holiday/vacation and which we all raved about - I tried to find it again, but couldn't(mountains with tress in the foreground).

    Anyway, I think the light, shapes and tones, as well as your composition, on these two are just outstanding.

    I also go for #2: I love the way the mist/clouds seem to frame the peak. What a great set overall: you sure took advantage of this trip!

    Cheers,

    Re: Milford to Dusky

    I am going to ruin 'the swell' by saying I prefer 1, 4 and 7.

    1 for the exposure, composition and colour (my favourite of the lot)
    4 for the lighting, sky and angle of shot
    7 for the scale, but it would be better if it were a vertical pano and we could see the top and perhaps a tad more LCE

    Good series Steve, well done

    Thanks for all comments, I did have a 'full' shot of the waterfall but I preferred the tighter crop, here's the full view

    And a few more I've been playing with...

    I don't think I have a favorite in the waterfall variants: different concepts, both very good.

    The second shot in this set (sailboat, "Chinook" on the bow, I think) is incredible. Like a postcard, only better.

    Cheers,
    Rick

    Number 2 of your second post is sublime; great colours, composition, and reflection. Numbers 3 and 4 are also nice.

    Re: Milford to Dusky

    Yes, this follow-on series is very good too. I might have let the foreground go a little darker in 2 to try and tone down the sky a touch, or perhaps down some selective darkening.
