Thank you. Yes, I tried different crops, but keep coming back to this frame aspect ratio. I think it comes down to personal taste and style in the end.

Yes, totally understand :-).

A friend of mine builds these things and I'm always fascinated on how he can climb to the top. There is no way you would catch me anywhere near it. Great shot though!

It sure pops out at you. Nicely done. I love it as a black and white.

The creative dance was based on Maori Kapa Haka and Haka moves. The Haka is a traditional expression of respect or a challenge. It is displayed to potential foes before a conflict but also shows respect (Mana) to people of note (including opponents), such as when someone dies, or when people of note are greeted. The NZ military, police and border security all have to learn the Haka as part of their training, most school children learn it as well. I have seen the border personnel shut down their booths, come out, and do a Haka when respected people, such as successful sports-persons, arrive from overseas. It is certainly common for Haka to be performed to honour the dead.

During the Haka men will strike warlike poses and make gestures as if to indicated combat, while women will come from behind and through their ranks to strike poses like the one you see - with eyes open wide to show the whites.


I love seeing the NZ rugby team do a Haka before a match.
So exciting, maybe even more than the match itself!

Love it. I took a shot like this early in the year. That buzzing from the power lines freaked me out.

I'd be afraid to stand there and shoot those wires, what with my pacemaker and all-?
