Went back up to Potoroo Falls with my cousins to re-shoot my previous failed attempt, im extremely happy with the shots a got this time.

[First time i went one with some of my friends to shoot the location together but i dident use a polarizing filter so my shots dident turn out well at all]

When I was making my business card with this photo I thought that I should reprocess it because it looked like it was lacking saturation and contrast.

I feel that it has a lot more impact now, hope you like it :)

Also a bit of info on the place that I didn’t include before:
Potoroo Falls is located in Tapin Tops National Park, Mid North Coast, NSW, Australia. Im not sure what the name of the mountain is called as its not on my topographic map of the area.

Camera: Pentax k100d
Lens: Sigma 18-125mm f/3.5-5.6
Filter: Hoya Circular Polarizer
Support: Tripod
Exposure:</b>6 seconds at f/16

    Excellent Nathan. I have also been back to the same location to re take photos!

  • Its always worth it, especially for sunrise/set shots where you don’t get time to photograph the entire location.

    If you’re ever up Taree way I’d be more than happy to shot you this place, its a gem =)
