Darkes Forest Waterfall

View large

The multiple falls over the various rock levels made for a perfect panorama composition, the sun was in full force but limited to lighting up the upper falls.

This is but a small portion of the falls, there is basically a whole extra layer above this, each with its unique and very lush set of ferns.

Techie data:
D7000 with Tokina 11-16mm f2.8 @ 16mm – Aperture: f/13 and Shutter Speed: multiple ( 3 brackets)

  1. Another ripper image. You may welcome suggestions, comments and improvements but I have none. Frankly I use your photos and those of a few others on G+ as a guide/inspiration to pick up my game with my photography and PP skills.

  2. Great wide view rich of colors and details. You've perfectly managed the long exposure, very pleasant result. 😉
    Which version of the Hoya ND8 did you use? I'm using the Japanese version that is the Kenko Zéta ND8 and I'm really satisfied. Do you think that the square types like the Lee and Cokin are better?
    Cheers 🙂

  3. Thanks +Claudio Beffa , I use the Hoya 77mm Neutral Density ND8 Pro 1 Digital Multi-Coated Glass Filter, the reason I selected this one was due to the fact it's a slim filter and i think the best Hoya have to offer in their range, I also use the hoya CPL of the same type. The slim version also reduces the vignetting when using two filters, there is still some vignetting when using two filters but none when using one slim filter.

    I like the idea of the square slide in ND filters, makes it easier to compose and focus, I do plan to get a couple of slide in ones to fit my LEE holder. However, for alot of scenarios the screw in filters are actually better, it means you can still use the lens hood which means (and this is very important for waterfalls) there is less chance of water spray getting on the filters. Additionally it makes the camera more portable when moving around a waterfall…

    I would choose the LEE filters first (slide in) I have found them to be very good and with very little colour cast, the cokin X-Pro are also good I hear…

    hth 🙂

  4. +Patrik Berger cheers mate – the most important thing I find is that one should never underestimate the opinion of the non photographers or less travelled togs, everyone sees things differently which is good.
    I actually love going through my images with my 4 year old , she provides me with excellent insightfull views which I just cannot see!
