    well, i am blue because I can never get a good shot of rangitoto island, i've been trying to get one since i've moved to this area in November. These shots tonight are the closest i've come to getting something i like. They are a bit dark. *Sigh* it seems like when the sky turns hues of orange, gold and other colours it never does over Rangitoto. But i'm stalking the island, i'll get a good shot of her yet! :)

    Anyways comments, critiques, suggestion welcome here.

    Stunning shots you've managed to do there. I suppose timing is of the essence to get the best shots but i think you've done just that.
    Well done mark

    I personally like the second one the best. You are right about them being dark but I like the way the clouds bring you into the subject and how the yellow defines the landscape better then the top one. Wonderful clouds shots.

    Hope you don't mind Mark, but i'd like to try and paint the second one. Those clouds are fantastic

    Hey if ANYONE is going to paint those images, it's going to be ME and my photo oils!! :p Just kidding, Darf..... :wink:

    Mark: I think the first image is the better of the 2. There is nothing in the foreground to distract my eye like the white things in the second (although the second has that gorgeous piece of sky). I also find the glow on the water in the first image to be enchanting.

    Beautiful work!!!! :D

    No this one's fine. I'm only after an impression of it and not too much of the finer details. Thanks anyway.

    I like them. The water is the best in the first one and of course the sky in the second one.

    Have you considered getting rid of the white things on the water in the second one. I can't really make out what they are anyway and they are slightly distracting.
