MOLESWORTH STATION, stories from New Zealand’s largest high country station, has been a 2 1/2 year journey with author Harry Broad, attempting to create a book that does Molesworth Station justice.

New Zealand Geographic Magazine cover finalist in 2010 awards
I’m very proud of the image and how NZ Geographic treated it. Obviously other people agree and of course, I’d love it to win the title. If you agree it would be great to get your vote here: http://www.themaggies.co.nz/vote-now/ (and there’s a $5 discount incentive on subscriptions). Fingers crossed.
We’ve just implemented mouse-over tooltips on the thumbs in our Nature’s Pic Images New Zealand stock photos website, after a couple of suggestions from users.
So we’d LOVE your honest feedback.
The pros and cons as far as we can see are:
They make browsing heaps quicker
They stop people clicking thumbs to get full information and options (such as similars or related images, print ordering etc), and it might just annoy a whole lot of people.
Try a sample page. We’d appreciate any comments you have after using in the comments box below! Update: We’ve just rebuilt them based on your feedback, so many thanks. Any further comments are very welcome.
Best regards, Rob & Janette
