I definately like this one better than your outtake. It is an amazing landscape photo, however with the person being hard to find I find it more distracting than a benefit. If the person was the same size and position as in your outtake, but with this shot, it would be perfect. :)

It must have been a wonderful experience to be out there amongst that kind of natural beauty.

Gorgeous, gorgeous! I love seeing the contrast between the plant life and the barren rock. What a beautiful scene! The clouds floating between the mountains make this so mystical too.

edit to add: Forgot to say - congrats on the nice FS score!

These rich colors are beautiful. I love the mood of this scene. And the tiny touch of red on the hikers is just right for giving the eye an anchor. I like the way the hikers are ascending the path leading to the large vertical stone which points slightly over toward the mountains. The flow in the image is great. Although it doesn't need it, I would have been tempted to brighten up the valley a little with a touch of 'soft light' white or yellow paint.

What an unreal place! Love the alternate as well. Will wander through your portfolio of New Zealand here shortly.

8 - What a beautiful pure scene and photograph. I was about to type 'gee I wish it was 720' - alas it is. Very nice.

This would be gorgeous without the hiker, but that splash of red totally makes this for me, it adds an additional element to your run of the mill landscape. Very nicely done!
