    Temporate rainforests are magical places and your image captures that beautifully. I like the water edge on the bottom for the same reason you do, and because it provides a frame of reference, a ground line, if you will to put the hill in perspective. Congrats on a TT.

    Thanks for your comments. I learnt a lot from this one, took a lot of pics.

    Hi Magich,
My original entry was a closer crop but I couldn't resist the subtle light changes provided by the uncropped version.
No Jaggedness - as my extra info says, it is a bush reserve and many people not used to NZ bushlines do not recognise them. Our native bush is temp rainforest and not pine trees or conifers as in other parts of the world but I appreciate you looking.

    Nice picture.
In my opinion the strip (water?) on the bottom is distracting, and a 3:2 or 16:9 crop would work better.
In my TT.

    Good timing for sure. Nice composition. Looks more like a painting than a photo. For me, the lack of definition downgrades the final picture.

    This is as warm and comfortable as liquid honey - and a little too sanitized for me personal taste. Still a wonderfully executed photograph.
