Mitchell's cottage, Alexandra.

Great place, superb aspect, built by a Shetland isle Scott who moved to central Otago in 1900, he was a gold miner and a stone mason.

my favorite one is the great view of the second to last photo ... and the beautiful frame.

You've done a great job here - love your exaggerated perspective on the first one, it really helps make it a more interesting shot than it would be otherwise.

I really like the second to last one as well... I like the jaunty angle of the frame within the frame, but I think I'd be tempted to have a crack at a straightened version too...

Another great set Robbon, I particularly like the B&W pictures, especially the gate.
Although I also like the shot through the window, I think it works well.

Excellent images! Thanks for sharing.

I think I recognize the character of the 10-22mm in these images, though, of course, the shooter is the more important part. :)

I enjoy seeing your images shot with the 10-22mm; they allow me to travel and imagine shooting with my 10-22mm, without leaving home. :)

The 10-22 is a fantastic lens, coupled with a polariser = win !
