Heart Shaped Falls

its a jungle in there!
View large or go home 😉
Well you may not be able to see the heart shape from this angle, however rest assured, this little set of falls has been coined by +O. Sydney and from his composition, lower and and the left, it does resemble a Heart 🙂

The light was coming and going as the clouds roared over head and intermittent spurts of rain fell, this gave the opportunity to catch the shot whilst some areas were nicely illuminated giving that dappled type of light.

This style of processing and capturing images is becoming pretty standard for me and I think I do need to branch out and try something alittle different 🙂 Panorama image with a total of 5 frames stitched together, each frame bracketed to capture the full dynamic range, which you can see in the upper falls in the top of the image. As usual, manually blended to achieve the lighting that I recall seeing.

5 shot Panorama (bracketed)

As always, I welcome any suggestions, comments and improvements to my photography, they are always warmly welcomed.
