I also got back from a trip to the South Island (Nice shots, X_tan). I personally didn't go to Milford Sound (went many years back, but instead got out to the Mt Cook area.It really is the most scenic island!
Lake Hawea (yeah I was amazed at this lake too):
Lake Tekapo (this lake is naturally photogenic. We arrived at sunset, and nearly everyphoto was magical):

Incidentally, I'd like to get some comments and criticisms on how I'm processing. Too much? I've been taking photos ever since I had a 350D, but been using JPEG until about a year ago. I still sort of feel a bit inexperienced with RAW processing.
