that overlooks Auckland. Mist & Fog engulfs the Waitemata Harbour,
about 1 cm from the left of the tree lies the harbour bridge. It has all

Wow! What an awesome scene! Love the way you built up this composition with the big tree placed in the foreground and incredibly interesting urban scape in the background. A top quality image. Excellent!

Hello Jim - As usual with land or cityscapes, the light is paramount. Here you have warm low light picking out details in the buildings behind the beautifully lit tree. Unusual composition with the tree centrally placed but here it is an inspired choice, I like the way it's branches fill the sky space without loosing any of the soft colour gradient. Warm regards Rosemary

I like your approach on this already well known tree. You have chosen an excellently working POV on this place high above the city. Beautiful colors and light and a very fascinating mood. The composition is also outstanding. My compliments!

a fantastic composition, nature overseeing the city as they are both awakening warmed up by the lovely morning light. The view has superb depth, sharpness and clarity and gives us an intimate portrait of the city. I love the colours and the places that are touched by the warm sunlight and the juxtaposition of the bending tree trunk with the elegant tower in the distance. A wonderful picture, congratulations!
All the best,

this is a stunning picture. the light is wonderful and helps to create fantastic colours. the little grass foreground is superb on which to place the tree, its shape is perfect. the view over the city is incredible and the early morning mist beyond is the finishing touch.

This is so wonderful! The golden light, the composition with this tree in foreground and then the city, with that sea of clouds. Well done!

What a lovely light create you with these picture.
These tree is truly the eye catcher before the lovely panoramic background, with the disappeared brigde through the low fog.
Good depth and perspective, what a colors palet
Excellent composition, nice presentation. TFS.
Have a nice weekend,

Nice to see you here on TE. And you wow us again with one of your Kiwi masterpieces. The pastel tones on the horizon in combination with that golden light are just mind-blowing and you've controlled the light superbly. Amazing depth of field and of course that mist just adds o the dramatic scene. Great title too.
Cheers and thanks for sharing
PS: Any plans of returning to Oz in the near future?

I have to say, you do very well with your landscape shots!
this one is sort of a mixture of landscape and cityscape.
without that tall building, i think alot would be lost in the photo - it has great visual importance.
I can see why this spot would be great for photographers.
I take it your focusing point was the tree? thats the hard thing about these types of shots, but the F/14 did a very good job in keeping the bg elements infocus too.

voilà un point de vue panoramique très bien trouvé pour photographier la ville et ses brumes intrigantes. Même si il est centré, j'aime la position de cet arbre au beau milieu de la scène, solitaire, il semble vouloir s'imposer à tout prix.
Une photo d'une extrème qualité de lumières et de couleurs, avec ce qu'il faut de profondeur.

This is a magnificent cityscape. I like the branches framing the top of the picture and that beautiful line of fog. The light is superb.
