Hi guys, first attempt to post in this section. Comments & critiques are welcome. Little bit of pictures background, these photos was taken at Wollomombi Falls (30 minutes ride from Armidale). It is one of the highest falls here in Australia.

PP info: converted into black & white in Lightroom, tonality adjustment, contrast boost, increase the sharpness, and apply small amount of noise reduction.

Many thanks in advance :wink

I would like to see the coloured version, I don't think B&W works in this case, that's a nice colourful area around Armidale. There will be 100 who love B&W, just personal choices.

Cheers

Agreed, as nice and classic as e B&W is, it's a bit hard to make out and the colour would be nice.

Also, colours around that area are nice aren't they? Why not bring out the orange leaves and green grass?

Just personal opinions, please don't take it as offense.

No worries fellows, photography taste is a subjective matter. Maybe I haven't found the right audience. The reason I changed it into b&w because the color version of these pictures are not appealing to me, and I want to highlight the texture of the rocky gorge that surround the falls. Anyway these are the color version of the pictures:

Among, I agree photography is a subjective matter, I prefer the coloured shots, nice colouring on the canyon face.

Cheers
