Hi my dear friend TONY,
The day is beautiful for me when I look at your images.
Excellent composition from the harbour.
pablominto (53744) 2008-10-23 23:22
A pleasant view of the lovely scene!
The elevated point of view works well, showing a pleasant residential area with the harbour for sailboats...
An attractive postcard with attractive colours!

excellent POV en altitude, une vue qui avait besoin de profondeur pour s'épanouir. Bien proportionnée, j'ai admire les lumières.
Valerka (8171) 2008-10-24 0:06
A nice way to start the day with the freshness coming from this shot with a very good composition.
rodgerg (55767) 2008-10-24 0:23
A wonderful landscape under an intersting sky, the framing well selected give a superb depht of field. An image rich in details well collected. Good photowork.
Have a good day,
snunney (78603) 2008-10-24 0:44
You show us a fine view across this lovely harbour in a pleasing well balanced composition with good framing. A fine light and good colour contrasts.
Longroute (19392) 2008-10-24 1:26
It's a lovely place to have a house or ...a boat!
I like how the vegetation arrives right by the seashore, so you have those deep greens and blue side by side.
Seems more like a lake than sea: a perfect natural harbour.
jlbrthnn (79791) 2008-10-24 1:30
Hello Ho Tony,
The luminosity of this image is exceptional. It is very well seen and captured. The landscape is splendid. It is once again an excellent work, of good clearness and perfectly made up. Congratulations.
Have a nice day
azaf1 (15929) 2008-10-24 1:56
What a view from above! All the little details nicely drawn on your canvas allowinga great horizon to be experienced in a great way. Really cie, indeed
Have a great day
macondo (18551) 2008-10-24 2:29
The highlights here are terrific - the houses, the car, the white flowers and above all the white boats in the harbour. Great composition to take the eye down the wooden steps in the left foreground and round the curving road to the other side. Lovely light and natural colours, and slight appearance of under-exposure, which I like. Superbly done.
paura (47166) 2008-10-24 3:16
Beautiful bay in your well composed photo, friend. The boats are an excellent ad.. Well done!
cfreire (11739) 2008-10-24 4:33
Wonderful capture of this beautiful harbour. the white boats spread on the marine are attractive. The red roofs add a nice contrast against the grass around of the houses. Good POV and framing. Well done. Regards, Consuelo
fulvio52 (8314) 2008-10-24 4:41
Fish & chips, uh? Yummie!
Splendid view from above, bathing in wonderful soothing light. Great framing and definition, perfect presentation. Love it!
Have a good weekend, my dear friend. I'll see you soon.
Hugs from a rainy Amsterdam,

all so small, just like a tool land with small cars, houses and boats. I like the white boats in the blue and the hill with the houses.
Lieben Gruss, Ulf
Kielia (22913) 2008-10-24 6:33

mark_mk (266) 2008-10-24 11:40
it`s a great view above the town and the lake, I like the dramatic sky and the rail to the left. Great depth of field and sharpness, you know what I would have done? Clone out the cars, but that`s the only thing, a very nice shot, great job!
Photo65Net (43120) 2008-10-24 12:20
Very nice depth here.
I likt too the blue hues, nice job,

Crystal clear colors and detail!! Very nice pov and a beautiful scene once again. Nice work! TFS
gunbud (34066) 2008-10-24 19:01
The lovely pastel sky and silver sky with the tranquil rolling hills make the perfect backdrop to this breathtaking harbor scene.
the scattering of white sailboats and village homes with orange roofs adds very effective scale and contrast to the calm blue waters of the placid harbor.
ElAprendiz (30) 2008-10-24 19:38
Hello my friend Tony:
The package of various elements, provide a pleasing composition.
I like the shades, and the high point of view is unbeatable to appreciate a beautiful panorama in its entirety.
The contrast of blue and green is very significant, and the whole atmosphere invites given a ride in a sailboat
jhm (134342) 2008-10-25 0:36

Good weekend my friend.
hay_kes (30434) 2008-10-25 3:48
Woooww,What a superb landscape vith sharpness, colours and POv are very beautiful.TFS.
Jakab (3867) 2008-10-25 15:33
I agree with you: a beautiful coastal view. Hills, mounts, interesting coast line, different signs of human activity (houses, boats, cars etc.) - all together an excellent advertisment for New Zealand. You can not imagine how good it is to look at your pictures in these desperate days.
Many thanks and best whishes
trekks (14348) 2008-10-25 23:53
This is a superb view across the harbour with white dotted boats on the water. I like the wide angle view to see everything so clearly from this POV.
The light condition is so pleasant to allow you for these shades of green. January and it looks like a good time to shoot here.
JCG (35129) 2008-10-26 1:11
A very beautiful and well proportioned sight, I like much your point of view with this staircase which gives an additional depth to the landscape. Very good management of the lights which creates a pleasant relief. Another beautiful sight of your country, I will have just tried a cloning of the cars, but it is a detail…
With all my friendships and very good Sunday,
Royaldevon (25884) 2008-10-26 2:27
Fish and chips sounds just the thing at the moment! I'm a little peckish and ready for lunch!
A wonderful seascape and landscape displaying beautiful clarity with only an F stop.
The steps make an effective lead into this shot which has amazing variety.
It can only be a matter of time before the N.Z Government approach you create a brochure to advertise the country!
COSTANTINO (50494) 2008-10-26 3:40
A fantastic shot taken from you again..
the small white boats look like the seagulls
into the blue water..
Amazing light with perfect lightness
excellent capture of that moment into the
thanks for sharing
have a nice week end
siamesa (27703) 2008-10-26 4:05
Good morning Tony
Splendid composition with these white boats in the water.I liked the view from these nice houses in the right side. Really amazing. Congratulations and thanks for sharing.
josepmarin (57459) 2008-10-26 4:34
A great POV to be able to show this beautiful landscape and the harbour with a great angle and a fantastic perspective and depth of image.
I like the nice effect of the white sailboats that splash the blue sea, and the houses that also decorate the green landscape.
The wooden rail of the stairs in foreground and the profile of the mountains in background works perfectly at the composition.
A beautiful work, my friend.
Warmest regards from Barcelona,
claudeD (30087) 2008-10-26 5:15

This is really a beautiful place my good friend, another excellent shot this time taken from a high POV giving us a panoramic view of not only the harbour with the sailing boats but also the marvelous town with nice houses. Great sharpness and very good colors. Good perspective. Well done. Finally I'm back home, sweet home.
Best wishes and a nice week ahead.

what a view Tony,
marvelous, the shot is very nice, good balance, fine details, a shame of the two cars, but I know,....
very good photojob here, have anice day.
Floydian (30970) 2008-10-27 2:22
What a nice setting you found here. I don't like the area below with the two cars, but man the rest of the scenery is breathtaking, looks wonderful with the little boats spreading all over the bay. But also the lines along the shore and the clarity in the image looks great. A wonderful landscape, seems i don't have enough time to visit all of these great places ;-)
Take care, Henk

The view is very beautiful and the clarity is amazing. There isn't almost any trace of haze not even near the horizon! The hour of the day is perfect, offering a light with very good contrast but with much detail in the shadows.
Cricri (100105) 2008-10-29 9:30
Quel agréable vue du port et du village, j'aime les couleurs mais surtout la lumiére qui est trés belle
Good day for you

it's such a pleasant view of the Mangonui Harbour. Happy is the person who lives in one of those houses. The boats are a nice focal point against all that great nature. Very good job, my friend!
