Un sourire lointain avant d'aller prendre l'air ce matin. Après une nuit pluvieuse, le ciel est devenu comme le "tien", mi-figue mi raisin dit-on chez nous ;-))
Joli travail sur un document vieux de 25 ans déjà !
Bon dimanche mon Ami/Pierre

hi chris, this is exactly the way of saturating the colours that fits my mood lately; i simply love this sharpening, saturation, high contrast; a very very attractive picture;
have a nice sunday, jerzy

A fantastic deep blue. I like the l;ayers of blue-brown-blue and the golden tree at the golden position in the frame. Well captured, Chris.

Bonjour mon ami Chris,
Je suis heureux pour la journée, j'ai vu une église de Nouvelle-Zélande ! ;o))
J'aime ces couleurs chaudes et cette sérénité qui se dégage de cette composition.

Lovely landscape. You are really visiting your old photos...
Good composition. I like the sky like a watercolour painting.
Good picked one!
Fixfocus (9385) 2005-11-06 5:25
A beautiful landscape composition,it looks almost like a painting.Excellent perspective with a lot of depth.The warm autumnal colors of the nature are nicely contrasting with the green/blue of the lake and the sky.

very nice country side shot, very nice colours here too, really good composition, well seen
john_c (24666) 2005-11-06 10:53
A well composed and colurful shot. The colours here really work well together. The autumnal tones are clearly visible and the little tree is seen in all of its glory on the left, jutting toward the water and balancing the frame. The DOF is impressive, as one can see far into the frame to the distant mountains. Very well seen and captured.

Chris the two trees sure add the interest in this photo. This has crated good focal points and depth to viewing this scene. Secondly shooting with such a low angle of light has really btought out lovley color in the sky and land too. Third, from this point of view you used teh shoreline to add a wonderful lead in to the photo. Good work drawing more interest. Good work.
Looks like that tree is getting lots of water. Is the water level up in this lake?
partha (14023) 2005-11-06 11:10
Quite perfect landscape.The curves in the pic, the position of the trees are great.

Clasical view on Lake Tekapo. Very good DOV.
capthaddock (28790) 2005-11-06 15:54
Hi Chris - the magnificent autumn colours look outstanding with the turqoise of the lake. Amazing image quality that could be from yesterday. I believe Lake Tekapo is in the Canterbury region, Southland is the area around Invercargill.
singuanti (15250) 2005-11-06 21:53
Hi Chris. I am so jealous of you being able to see such a place. The sharpness might be increased a hair but it's still an eye-popping landscape. Nice catch Chris!
chaity (1539) 2005-11-06 23:05
Hi Chris, lovely place and it looks so peaceful. The view point of the trees and the church is nice. Except they are too in the middle.
jmdaoudal (82) 2005-11-07 3:10
This is may be New Zelland is so called, I find so much similarities with some places from scotland.
A nice one that shows well and very automnal colors.
HOBO (5282) 2005-11-07 7:06
I really enjoy this perfecly composed view, going down to the distant mountains, fine colors and sharpness.
bazal (7900) 2005-11-07 8:36
What a superb place ! If we don't look to the very right part of the picture with the house and car, the area looks like some of the place we can see in Peter Jackson's 'lord of the ring'... Perfect light and beautiful colors. Thanks for sharing !
weswang (18223) 2005-11-07 10:43
Hi Chris, A beautiful scenery. I like your composition here a lot. The colors of the water made a nice contrast to the colors of the land, which well lead to the background blue mountains. You have well captured the mood and the beautiful colors.
fireflyz (2097) 2005-11-07 15:01
Lovely scene, well captured! Great colors and well composed. It almost looks like a painting. Nice work!
Janice (4403) 2005-11-08 5:30
HI Chris, this is a new angle of the church at Lake Tekapo. Good POV. And the autumn colours and sharpness are stunning too. Well done.
elihesamian (26149) 2005-11-08 9:08
What a nice beautiful autumn view you show us! and old in your archive,Thanks for posting,Chris,
The church,one tree in mid and one in side and all in a line made a good balance for frame horizontaly,...also,the warm ground with the mountain(above the sea/lake) has a nice symmetry for the balance of the shot,very well composed with notice to the elements,and the snowy mountains in far adds a mystrious feeling to this atumanal view which i like it very much,...beautiful and great work,
HNIK (1104) 2005-11-08 12:08
