    Hi, I thought I would share my new zealand photos, let me know what you think! These are pics from Mount Ruapehu (mt. doom in lord of the rings) and Mount Ngauruho (mordor). I am a bit biased, but I think this is the most beautiful country in the world. Check out the rest of my pics at : http://www.mark.nagy.com/new-zealand/new-zealand-photos.html

    Cheers all,

    Thanks for your replies and feedback (even if you are aussies :wink: , just kiddin of course - l love oz too). Its great to hear you comments and any criticism is welcome as well, as i am always looking to improve my craft :)

    just a quick note about where the photos are:
    1. Can't recall the exact name of falls, but it was supposedly filmed where
    gollum was swimming in the Lord of the rings. This is near Whakapapa ski resort.
    2. This is a crater near hell's gate, Rotoroa
    3. Mt. Doom to LOTR fans, or Ngauruhoe in the local tongue
    4. Mt. Ruapehu, this is I believe where they filmed mordor in LOTR
    5. Mt. Ngauruhoe again

    Mark

    Love #2

    It's so unusual in color. Looks like somone hacked into the earth and the muscle is exposed.

    Like #5 as well. Very dreamy. Though it could also look like it was a poor white balancing job with all that blue. Would be different if you caught it at dusk but that's not alwaysan option.

    I'd have to say that they are all pretty good shots... just a few suggestions...

    #1 - pretty good

    #2 - Loverly scenery, just to much sky, i would have prefered half the sky you have at the moment and more od that lovely crater/valley

    #3 - awesome shot, only the sky (top left) and clouds are a little blown out

    #4 - This time i would have gone for less foreground and more sky (to much 'dead' space - the black down the bottom)

    #5 - probably a difficult one to get, but again the sky and clouds are blown out (perhaps the use of a graduated ND?)

    #6 - (you might want to fix the link) Nice shot and good composition, but it would be nice to see more detail in the foreground, but the sky looks correctly exposed (again, perhaps a grad ND would help here)

    Oh, man - these are all beautiful. I would agree about #6, it's a bit too dark overall. The color saturation on the others is fabulous.

    I really DO need your secret of how someone who lived in GA ended up in New Zealand!!! :)

    Thanks everyone again for your feedback!

    Thanks hojamohoho,
    Excellent suggestions, i think you are right on with what you said.
    So what part of oz are you from?

    The colorful crater pic and the broken link (shown below) were taken from a helicopter while it was really windy it was a bit of a nerve wracking flight.
