If anyone is deserving of a fine seascape dedicated, it would be Pablo....very fine dedication and your images are always and almost never in words of being critiqued...You know your areas well and it shows...so 4 points...2 for you and 2 for your dedication.

Hi Tony!

What a nice present for Pablo. It's a pitty he's leaving us, he was important to TN. For us landscape lovers it's also a loss...

Your picture is a bit different from the other postings. It's wilder, nature here seems to be harsher. This also means for me more beautiful. I also like the dynamic atmosphere in the picture.

Kind regards


Hi Tony,
I've missed a few again,but congratulations on your 150th posting .. and you've got to 9325 points aready!
Another beautiful coastal landscape.
Good all around detail and coloiur.
Well done,

Dear Tony,
The master of the NZ Coastline strikes again!
As always you manage to find the right point of view to get the most out of the scenery and to add drama...
I'm looking forward to see more of your postings in TE, and I will also drop by TN to see how my friends are doing!

A great photograph and a wonderful man to choose for the dedication. How sad that he is leaving ... do we know why?

Perfect composition, superb contrasts between the rough, rugged rocks and the smooth, liquid sea. The colours are outstanding!

Hello Tony,
Excellent framing of this seascape, marvellous colour-contrast and nuances of blue tones. Sorry,not having been so present the last months, I had my PC broken and I just had opportunity sometimes to look at TN on my son's PC.
Now it is fixed and I can take it more easy.

Hi good friend Tony,
CONGRATULATIONS for reaching this huge milestone and hope to see many many more. You have portrayed your country so beautifully through your lens and with great skill too.
Outstanding shot again and you portray this charming scene so nicely. Lovely colours and details with very impressive sharpness. The splashing waves, clear blue sky and the green mountains look majestic as a setting. sad to know about Pablo but it is a fitting dedication for the MASTER. Excellent POV and composition. Kudos.

Hello Tony, dear friend,
Firstly congratulations on your 150th. I wish you many hundreds posts on TN. Up to now,I have seen many great shots, espcially beautiful landscapes from New Zealand and nice to get contact you, nowly by internet. I hope, we can meet real life in future. This is wonderful seashore scene and nice dedication. Thanks so much. best wishes to you and your family always.

Ho! Tony, Dostum,

Hello Tony. Beautiful dedication for the great Pablo here. The quality of your gallery and Pablo are both commendable. I like the clean image with low perspective here. Thanks for sharing and best regards. Jusni

Hi Tony,
wow!What a great looking perspective shot you have in this very clean,clear and colourful photo of a place that looks so very inviting.What boggles my mind about this shot is how much field of depth you have with only f/3.2,incredible!Well I hope you will upload another 150 photos as the ones I have seen to date are so very wonderful and have your mark of style on them.Thanks for giving us all, this outstanding view.

Hi Tony,
First of all congrats for Your 150th post and I'm also sad our common friend Pablo decided not to upload his masterful creations anymore. Secondly: it's difficult to find a photo of You to comment, because there are so many great ones among them... When seeing Your gallery in thumbnail view, it seems like the whole Auckland area seaside is captured, by a professional landscape photographer. I really like Your work, Tony, and bookmark You as a favorite.
Fantastic shot this really is. Absolutely great colors and focus, not to mention sharpness and compo. For me, seeing an image like this is so special, because I'm living in a country without seaside, and I haven't traveled to any sea in the past 4 years.
Congrats for the shot, and of course tfs. Friendly regards from the heart of Europe, László
