Really love the background. Tonal range is wonderful. Only nitpick is right hand side forefront. Just doesn't fit in with the range of the rest of the shot with the extremely dark shadows. Still it's one my top landscape picks in the challenge. :)

Amazing scenery in the sky. The warm and cool colors are amazing together. The hill in the foreground is distracting.

This is just jaw drop to the floor and stay there for hours gorgeous! Love the colors, the lighting and the sheer beauty of this place that you captured so wonderfully! Don't know if I am going to have much time to comment on entries but I just HAD too on this one. Beautifully captured and beautifully done! I can easily see this in the top 5. Beautiful!!! ....hmmm if you have other photos that are of this caliber showcasing the beauty of other locations in New Zealand it would make a wonderful calendar.

lovely set-up and moment to take the shot. I love the drama in the clouds and the reflections on the mountain. 10 (came back to comment)

Something about the composition is making me feel it's got a slight tilt to the left. No wait - it was just my chair: 10

This is gorgeous. Would make my front page easily. This is a fantastic capture. This is also a great example of how less is more. It would have been easy to over-process this but you did wonderfully with shot and processing.

beautiful light ad excellent sharpness of the mountains and clouds. Had cropped off the bottom 25 % for more impact, the dark hill and village in front are quite distracting
