After posting my North Island Photos of the beautiful New Zealand, I'm now posting my South Island photos.

We stayed on the stunning South Island for 2.5 weeks and it was a great time.
All photos taken with Canon 400D, Sigma 10-20, Canon 24-105L and Sigma 100-300.

Comments are more than welcome, I would like to learn. So here's the gallery:

Thanks for taking the time to take a look!

Stunning photos. Just one question. Did you usea filter on any of the shots? Photo # 3 looks like it would benefit from a circular polarizer.

Thanks BEECEE. I actually used a polarizer in all 3 of these shots.

Very nice shots. I tried to pick a favorite, but couldn't.

Thanks TCav. Couldn't you pick a favorite of these three or from all of them?

Nothing like encouraging the viewer to travel - after looking at them, I want to go to some place that looks like that! I really liked the one in your album of the reflection - the water was so still as to be awesome. I can't decide whether I like the first or the third one best - hard choice. There's something about the second one I don't find as pleasing, but I can't put my finger on it. However, I'm quibbling because I would have been delighted to have taken one even half as good as that one is, and it reflects more on just how awesome I think the other two are.

Tim,
...................what a wonderful collection, both North & South, just terrific.

Again, I very much like your composition style and I offer no critique.

I only wish for my photos to be as well done someday as I see yours to be.

I also feel I owe a selection of favorite photo and it happens to be 'Lake Pukaki' of the South gallery.

Thanks very much for sharing your adventure, I enjoyed the visit.

Oh yes, traveling. I want to go again! It's one of the most enjoyable things in life IMO to do (see and explore the world).
I had to wait quite some time to get the Lake Matheson shot, but I was pleased with the result.
Thanks for you comments
mtngal.

Thanks for the kind words Bon!
We all like to improve here. Reading these forums (looking at other ones photos), reading books and most important keep practicing ourselves.
Lake Pukaki is a magical and surreal place. The wonderful location of the lake (very quiet) the immense mountains (covered in snow) and the color of the water (glacier water) makes it a magical location IMO.
Thanks for looking!
