Great wallpaper!!, light and colors are very nice.

I did not like the mountain reflection, it distracts me

Magnificent shot! I´ve been to NZ twice, this image makes me remeber good times. Thank you for sharing it with us!
Where is the exact location of that shot? Looks like Blanket Bay.

Dominic, I hereby grant you the official of title of "Yoo da Mann" (You're the man)! Great work as always.

You cannot improve upon perfection. You have exquisitely captured this preternatural moment in time.

Many thanks for your comments, especially yours Stubulman! ;-)

Sorry to hear that you're distracted by reflections. That's just how nature works. You can use a polarization filter to minimize reflections.

You've got an excellent eye! It's indeed Blanket Bay. The perfectly exact position is: -44.866149,168.391064

I LOVE being able to clearly see the stars in it. Please take more "HI RES" photos like this around twilight morning or dusk. I think A LOT of people in the world would like seeing more pictures of this nature. Seeing the stars is great by themselves, but its a wonderful sight when we can occasionally see the stars & the world together in the same view. Nature only allows rare views like to pass before our eyes through very thin windows of time near the beginnings & endings of each new day, usually only lasting a brief couple minutes or so.
You really do us all a favor in capturing these fleeting views of creation's beauty with your camera's eye. Keep up your noble creative good work!

I cannot see anything that could be improved at this time. We only need more pictures of this nature!

I made an account just to comment on this (my username)

I have a thing for starry images and star photography.
And then i have a thing for starry images with greenery. I have an inexplicable love for the combo and when I seen this I knew I had to make it my wallpaper and for a long time too. Thank You.

P.S. I've always enjoyed seeing your work on here :)

OK, the picture looks nice and nature always does. But, be honest; it is a fake. The stars and the surrounding is a photoshop-composition. It is OK doing this, but not if you claim "That's just how nature works" ...

I love your work, I pretty have all your wallpapers and shuffle them from time to time. I have to agree with benutzername, the giveaway here is that there is no reflection of the stars in the water... but I still like the composition !! Are we correct?
