Milford Road

Milford Road is a long stretch of road leading from Te Anau to Milford Sound, located on the south island of Aotearoa (New Zealand).


It is, by my estimation, one of the most scenic drives I've ever seen.

    When I look at this photo, it makes me think of... long walks in the mountains, which, interestingly, I was never really that interested in - but I did admire the beauty of. This photo reminds me of the 'beauty' bit :)

    I think this photo is about... how dramatic and unexpected nature can be

    Technically... this is a mighty fine photo indeed - I'm wondering if it's perhaps a little bit over-sharpened - the reeds in the foreground are especially disturbing in this respect, and the trees on the hillside on the right as well - they look a bit murbled as a result of the sharpening

    What I like about this photo... is the reflections, especially how they're completely still, but not a 100% perfect representation of the bits that it's reflecting. I'm also absolutely loving the sky - it looks as if the mountain is covering up for a very dramatic explosion, in a way.

    If I were to improve or change anything, I would... try to reduce the sharpening a little bit. You could also try to see if any of your other photos taken from the same location have a higher potential for doing something with that awesome sky - it has a great potential for doing silhouettes, for example (open this photo in photoshop and whack up the contrast to an extremely high level, for example, and you'll see what I mean)

    Overall... I think this photo has the raw material in it for a good landscape, but the post-processing is letting you down a little.

    Finally, if you fancy it, why not add this photo to the Flickr pool?

    This is a Photocritic photo critique. If you want one, too, check out my photo critiques page. Also, why not make Flickr a better place for photographers by doing photo critiques yourself, too? Go on, you know you want to...
