You have chosen the best possible position to shoot this landscape image, Janice.
Superb composition with wonderful colours and contrasts.
I wish I could be standing exactly at the point where you took the picture from.
Anyway, that wish is already fulfilled through this superb image.
Thanks and regards,

For me, the turquoise colours hasn't any unreal aspect because here in the Swiss Alps we have many mountain lakes, even rivers with that colour. It's typical for the water coming from the glaciers.
Your picture is so delicate, the pastel colours create a fine atmosphere and the horizont line, where the colours of the sky and the lake come together, is just marvellous.

The waters opaq quality, along with its aquamarine color looks very striking Janice. Still waters run deep :)
I think the overcast conditions made it even more opaq looking..
Well composed and a great note as always mf,
Probably you enjoyed this vista with a white wine(Riesling?). This isn't mentioned in your note;-).
Wow... I never realized that NZ had such a large lake. I learn something new from you with every image.

Hi Janice, this is a very serene, dynamic landscape composition. The land lines work wonderfully to lead the eye into the BG of the image giving a fine sense of depth. The calm turquoise blue water is so peaceful on this cloudy day. Very nicely done. Tfs Richard

Ouch, I suppose the less I say about the rugby the better so let's leave it at that. You'll get the report anyway with the statistics spreadsheet.
I'd rather talk about this peaceful and calming scene you have captured here. Just fabulous with stunning depth and amazing details all the way throughout the entire range of the shot. The soft lighting of the overcast weather obviously aided the exposure, but the little Panasonic used it, together with the f/3.3 aperture to your advantage to give you a 1/1000 second shutter speed that sorted out any possible camera movement of the hand held apparatus. The composition is also great with the rocks in front forming a lovely triangle in the foreground, which helps the eyes to settle into the shot on its journey of discovery. On the top 1/3 level of the horizontal plane at the right hand side we find a piece of land lined with trees at its top and the reflection of those trees at the bottom which also forms another triangle on the shot. This lies opposite the flat strip of land on the left 1/3 horizon that creates the divide between the lake and the cloudy sky. The colours are just magnificent and it adds to the serenity of the panorama. Blue (in any shade) is a comforting and gentle colour.
I remain excited and eager to see the rest of your holiday shots.
Well done and TFS.
