After 300mm+ (12”) of rain in the last few weeks the rain forest was looking quite fresh at Springbrook.

I should have put the falls off centre :oops:

Edit: This week

Twin Falls, Canyon Lookout Springbrook N.P. This Week.

I came across a similar shot whilst looking at examples for high key, although this is not HK I like it.

Original with 200mm lens.

You should show up at that same location at dusk, use a ND filter and employ some long exposures. :P

Looks like you have been shooting in harsh, mid-day light. You're getting blown out highlights in tree shaddows, nothing uncommon. Also 2nd image could use a bit of contrast enhancing.
I agree with MCP, different time of day would give you better results.

Thanks for the comments, they were taken around miday and guess I should read up on ND filters.

Cheers

Have a look at Gordon's video about blurring water here :
http://www.dslrtips.com/workshops/How_to_blur_water_photos/long_exposure_water.shtml

The scale of the waterfall in #1 is lost by your composition, I think. The people below are not easily seen, so you could do with some other visual reference for scale in the frame.

Hi kimchi, I’ve read Gordon’s tutorial on dreamy water, I am not a fan of this as I think all photos look the same and un-natural. The fall was flowing quite hard and was sparkling. I am disappointed with myself for allowing the shot at the speed I took it as it is on the verge of the dreamy water effect and different from what was actual reality, I think there is a bit of camera shake in the shot.

I agree with your comment about composition especially with the falls in the centre, not to sure about the people at the bottom of the falls or what I could do about it, they were a long way down and I guess they would give some scale of the falls. Not to many places there to capture all the falls for a different composition in one shot.

Thanks for your comments.

Cheers

I will ad.. your composition on your photos is very good. We just need to get you an ND filter and wait for the right time of day. :D
