Hi Tony,

Such beautiful greens - something we never have in Arizona. This looks like springtime back east - not autumn. A lovely landscape with wonderful depth.

Hi Tony, I am so impressed by the beauty of the green and golden colours here. It is luxurious, I am in love once more with your country. How does it feel to be the opposite of what most people on the planet live: the seasons change opposite, the day and night are opposite... who is opposite ;-)

I love the glowing greens and the pale and pastel blue of the sky. It is a lovely shot, filled with grace and beautiful light. Thanks again,

Hi Tony
A lovely landscape showing good contrast of the greens and yellows. The vivid colours are almost like spring when everything is fresh. Composition and detail are excellent.
Cheers from Australia

Hello Ho, nice shot of this green sorroundings depicting the "Global Warming" sign. Excellent sharpness. Ganesh

This is an interesting series of shots, Tony.
Very beautifully captured.

Hello Tony
This amazing scene reminds me somewhat of the English countryside..I know the species of tree are all different but there is a a similarity.
Your light and shadows here are amazing as are the richly saturated colours.
All the Best to You
(sorry for not replying to you the other day..I have been having a few issues and as such have been short of time..My Apologies to you Tony)

Hi tony,

Here in Europe have we real good autumn colours.
Beutiful green colours and nice sky.


Hello Tony. Unique post from the southern hemisphere in contrasting climate :-) I like the sun bringing out the warmth of the green pasture. Nice lush greenery and well captured here. Best regards. Jusni

Hello Tony,

Wonderful landscape. Superb composition. Excellent DOF. Beautiful colours with a great variety of greens.

Hi Tony,

This is the start of a beautiful autumn. It looks as a spring here in Europe. What a difference in colors and such a beautiful green in some trees. I think is was a very beautiful day?
Regards and TFS BOB

Hi Tony, we have spring in Italy and your splendid composition look like our season, lovely landscape with splendid green colors, very well done, ciao Silvio

Hi Tony!

This image is like a fairytale, showing this wonderful green place! It is very hard to get so much details out of a scene like this. Compression isn't too visible though it's an image that can suffer that easily. Luckily the sky got it more but the vegetation is untouched by that effect. Beautiful place, TFS!

Best regards,

Hi My Dear Friend TONY,

Fascinating colours in image, and a lovely landscape..
Like a virgin land...
All the best.
Enjoy !!

Hi good friend Tony,
Another outstanding landscape shot with such awesome colours and details. The bright sunlight provides beautiful illumination and the clear blue sky gives a fabulous setting. Great view and your chosen POV portrays it in all its glory. Very nicely composed. Kudos.

Hello Tony,

If you had said this was late spring in Grassington, England, I would have believed you!
The vibrant greens are amazing!
Your pov is good; it draws the eyes up the slope and encourages them to observe the rest of the shot!

Kind regards,
Bev :-)

hi Tony,
fantastic shot. Appropriately named as the light in this shot is really what brings it to life.. has a great glow about it. nicely composed, fantastic lighting, great color. well done thanks for sharing

Hi Tony,
A nice capture of these beautiful greens. Lovely composition. And well seen. Thanks a lot for sharing.

I love this photo Tony and I love being in places like this.
I'm from England originally,and this has an English countryside look about it with the big willows and poplars.
My wifes parents farm at Honikiwi,near Otorohanga in the Waikato has a place that looks identical to this.
Beautiful though the trees are,they would all actually be considered 'domesticised species' here in NZ (even all the grasses and weed species visible are introduced) so,strictly speaking,this doesn't really meet the TOS
... never mind ... its very pretty :)
Beautifully captured in wonderful light.

Hi Tony,
This is a very interesting as our countries are in the opposite position from the sun. When you have winter, summer is coming here. I think that this is the first time that I see what autumn look like in your country :)! This is a lovely composition with superb tones of colors. I like this deep rich green color that reminds me a bit of England that I visited many, many years ago... I still remember how green it was and this superb representation looks like the souvenirs I have from this country. I have two friends who had the chance to visit New Zeeland; I wish I'll have this chance someday. Thanks,

Hello Tony,
This one is a real WOW!! Look at those colours. The green velvetty meadow looks so good to be true.Fantastic POV, well saturated colors and beautiful light. Seeing all these beautiful pictures from our TN members I wonder which place to choose if I ever get a chance to get out of the country. I wanted to visit S. Africa and Australia to take pictures of all those mammals and colorful birds, and now after seeing all your beautiful landscape shots I have added NZ to my list too.:)Well, until I make my wish come true, I will be satisfied with your pictures. So keep posting more and more of your beauties,

Your photograph 'Autumn sun' is beautiful and the composition is also good.
