Revisiting Waterfalls

LeanneCole-ladybath-9309

Last year I went to visit Ladies Bath Waterfalls near Bright in the Mount Buffalo National Park.  I showed images at the time and I showed another one this past Tuesday.  It has been a big week so for today I thought I might revisit the photos and try working on them again and playing around with some stuff.  I have two images for you.

Both done slightly different.  I am off now, I think I will work on some other photos as well.  Enjoy your day.

  1. Ooooh I like the second photo better. Must be nice to create such great photos!

    • Thank you John, it is certainly fun to play and see what you get.

      May 8, 2014
  2. I just returned from Yosemite among other sites in Northern California. I was completely overwhelmed with the grandeur of the gushing falls that I saw. I understand your enthusiasm.

    May 8, 2014
    • The falls there are so amazing, or so I have heard. I hope you got some wonderful photos Sally.

      May 8, 2014
  3. These are beautiful! The one on the left is mystical. The one on the right feels like a secret natural place in the woods, peaceful.

    May 8, 2014
    • Thank you Nia, I like the way you have described them.

      May 8, 2014
  4. I think I like the second more – seems to have more mystery to it.

    May 8, 2014
    • Thank you Colline, it is wonderful hearing what people think.

    I believe I like the second most. However, the water looks clearer on the left. Hmm. Again I cannot choose. ;)

  6. I kind of prefer the first image – but I am unsure if that is because I began with this image or it just is more pleasing for me. Each though is interesting and not the usual nature shot.

    May 8, 2014
    • Thanks Robert, I like the first one too, I think, though they are very similar shots and I didn’t mean them to be. LOL

      May 8, 2014
  7. I’m in love!!! What more can I say except these photos are so gorgeous! You definitely have your own, unique style that is something to behold.

    May 8, 2014
    • Thank you Laura, I hope so, it is a strange thing the whole style thing, but I am glad that people think I have one.

      May 8, 2014
  8. Again I have missed out on so much here. I just had to drop in to see what you are doing. I love them both, Leanne, yet my eye keeps getting drawn to the left one. Both are totally mesmermizing. Love, Amy

    May 8, 2014
    • Don’t stress Amy, I’m not going anywhere. Thank you.

      May 8, 2014
  9. I really like the foreground rocks in the second image Leanne! They frame the image and almost act like a basin, cupping the water. Does that make sense?

    May 8, 2014
  10. Dreamy, mysterious quality.

    May 8, 2014
  11. Yes I’m a ‘second’ pic girl too!

    May 8, 2014
  12. Excelent, Leanne! :)

    May 8, 2014
  13. They have an air of mystery.

    May 8, 2014
  14. The left one does it for me. Its more abstract I think, less objectified. The constrasting ethemeral falling water and the still green boulder filled water of the pool put me in mind of a Haiku poem. Anyway, they’re both a pleasure to contemplate. Thank you

    May 8, 2014
    • I like that one too, thank you, that is nice to know.

      May 8, 2014
  15. The second one for me! It has a more ‘secret, hidden glade’ feel to it but also I think it is a stronger composition.

    May 8, 2014
    • I don’t think you are alone in that Noeline, seems to be the more popular choice, thank you.

      May 8, 2014
  16. I’m a sucker for waterfall photos. Like most of the other people, I like the second one a bit more. I think it’s because you can see just that little bit more of the surroundings so you get to take in the scene as a whole, rather than just the water in isolation.

    …I’m not sure if that made sense to anyone else.

    May 8, 2014
    • I don’t think you are alone there David. The second is proving to be a lot more popular. That is interesting, thank you, and it makes sense to me.

      May 8, 2014
  17. Beautiful Leanne, I have a love affair with water and slow shutter photography of same, this is simply divine. Love it!

    May 8, 2014
    • Thank you, I have the same love affair, I think it is a popular one.

      May 8, 2014
  18. PS like the first one, which is highlighted a bit more.

    May 8, 2014
  19. I really like the first waterfall photo. It looks so magical, like something out of a Harry Potter movie. Did you darken the photo(s), or was it quite dark when you took the photos?

    Hope you’re well and over your cold, Leanne. Sounds like you’re enjoying time with your photos. Work has been okay. My colleagues are all sick with the flu so I hope I don’t get sick :)

    May 8, 2014
    • I did darken it some, I did quite a few things to it. I was experimenting to see what I could get. Thanks Mabel.

      Slowly, still coughing, but only morning and night now. I am enjoying spending time with my photos. Had a lot of fun today. Not good when everyone around you is sick, fingers crossed you don’t catch anything. :)

      May 8, 2014
      • Ah, so I guessed right, then. I’m not very good at guessing. Great to hear you’re being creative, you sound so happy.

        Coughing is annoying, so get a lot of rest. I have had a stuffed nose today, just hoping it’s winter allergies. So happy tomorrow’s Friday :D

        May 8, 2014
      • I love playing with the images, could almost argue that I like it more than actually taking them.
        It is annoying, but slowly getting better, looking forward to being able to get out and about in the mornings again without the cold affecting me as much. The thing that seems to be going around seems to start with a sore throat, so maybe it is just allergies, I hope it is. Thanks Mabel, enjoy your weekend. :)

  20. Love them!

    May 8, 2014
  21. Strange… I have a very sudden urge to photography waterfalls :-) Love the first one!

    May 9, 2014
    • Thanks Ingrid, you better go and do some then, I love photographing them, but they are some distance from me.

      May 9, 2014
  22. Pretty. Get well soon.

    May 9, 2014
  23. I love waterfalls, but can seldom do them justice. Those two of yours are great ads for slideshows rather than single pictures – each has merit!

    May 9, 2014
    • They are a lot harder to do than you would think, it is very easy for the water to just blow out, that is what I have found, I tend to underexpose a stop or two. Thank you Colonialist.

      May 9, 2014
  24. Nice

    May 9, 2014
  25. I like both. Yes they have a Lord of the Rings look to them!! :)

    May 9, 2014
    • I like that Cybele, I like that a lot. Love that movie, so inspirational visually. Thank you so much. We must talk soon. :)

      May 9, 2014
  26. Waterfalls are full of beauty. I am in awe of those who capture them so well.

    May 9, 2014
    • Thank you Suz, they are a lot harder to do than you would think. I was just saying that I tend to underexpose mine a little so the water doesn’t blow out.

      May 9, 2014
  27. They are both beautiful images in their own way

    May 9, 2014
  28. I like both but the first one in my opinion is better :)

    May 9, 2014
  29. Did you use a neutral density filter? I am so new to the this I hate to ask questions. When I ordered the extention tubes last week I ordered a Hoya Circular Polarizer and a Hoya 9 stop neutral density filter. I want to experiment soon with that and water.
    Love the waterfalls.

    May 10, 2014
    • You know what, I can’t remember, I took these photos so long a go, I don’t even remember what lens I was using. I know there was a guy there with the same wide angle, and he had a filter on it, but I don’t remember what I was using, sorry. The neutral density is great with water. Have fun with your experimenting.

  30. Beautiful!

    • I don’t know, I have never really thought about it. I like both I suppose. Do people do waterfall adventures?

      May 12, 2014
  32. Beautiful place, Leanne. Funny how opinion divides, isn’t it? I like the first :)

    May 17, 2014
    • It is, and I like that one too, I suppose we all have different tastes, I see that a lot. Thank you.

      May 17, 2014
  33. Ah … how funny Leanne I mentioned these earlier in a comment .. and then catching up still and going backwards as is my way Lol here are those waterfalls !!
