Critique Club Comment:

I will try not to rehash all of the comments left already so lets look at color. This photo has some great colors in it and I feel that with some minor curves/levels/contrast adjustments you could make this really pop off of the page. With all of the shades of green in the foreground in contrast with the blue of the water, you could make the viewer really want be sitting on the hill looking at the lake.

I like the composition of this shot. A little more sky and a little less of the tall grass may make it more relaxing to me.

You technical skill are good, there is not signs of artifacts and the picture is nice and crisp.

You have captured a very nice view that has me longing to see more.

Here's a quick and dirty mock up of what I was talking about. It's a little to much, but you get the idea: //www.pbase.com/image/11318466

I can almost see Frodo and his gang running across one of those hills. I think you might have tried this picture with less grass and more sky, but I do liike the composition outside of that.

I don't like the grass in the foreground, but that's just me. The rest of the shot is absolutely picturesque. Nice job! - Inspzil

I wanna go , I wanna go..... Of all the places in the world I want to see , New Zealand is the top of the list. A filter to take out the haze would make this perfect. Great shots like this dont ease my desire to come there.

Wow, nice view to stumble out into. I like the use of the grass at the front, it helps break the scene into 3 layers quite nicely.

I like the composition but the sky is too light. The whole photo could be a little darker. Good focus and rather interesting. Overall a good shot.

Nice work. Perhaps just a little more sky would be nice - the mountains are just too close to the top edge for my liking. Composition otherwise is quite nice - New Zealand truly is a lovely place in terms of scenary.
