    Well, I want to climb in your photo and sit on that bench. What an amazing sky and awesome perspective of the city. Very nicely done.

    Thats a great picture. The rainbow is like icing on the cake. I noticed in many of your photographs you seem to bave dramatic clouds and/or coverage, is it always like that in New Zealand ? Capturing the water in the front really adds to mood of the picture.

    I agree with Alison too ... I wanna climb into this pic and the thing is : it seems as if I could.........the picture quality is bewwwwtiful.
    It seems as if , whilst sitting on that bench , that one could almost touch the sky ..... :sillysmi:

    Well done , once again , matey.
    I love your pics :love:


    P.S Interested in seeing how people critique this......how ppl think you could improve on it....I personally feel its beautiful the way it is....

    You mean people actually "critique" his pics - I thought this was the swoon over vonn forum :lol:

    I love the added effect of the rainbow, it just seems to polish the job off nicely. I love how the clouds look so low too.

    Gorgeous :love:

    :oops: aww thanks folks, I was quite chuffed when i took the pic, as it had just stopped downpouring - I took three shots of the bench and ran back to the car and starting raining again.

    Yeppers, Auckand is on a narrow ithmus that seperates the tasman sea and pacific oceanic, there are some amazing clouds there. I bring them out more by creating burning layer masks in photoshop.

    lol, usually i only post photos here i don't like or are unsure about, this was the first time i've posted one I really like. - but here is always room for improvement :mrgreen:

    Love the pic, very well captured and cool composition as well! :D :D

    One thing id love to have seen though, would be if the bench in the foreground was slighly lit a bit more. Maybe by flash or natural light, i think then it would have been a nice contrast to the sky. Its a little bit to dark for my liking.

    The only problem I can see with this photo, is that my eyes keep getting caught up in the busy town behind the bench. Maybe if the bench were a little brighter that would help (or if you used you're black magic to create a lens that could keep both the bench and rainbow in focus, but not the town)

    Also the clouds look like they're been processed to me.
