Lower Cataract Falls

A difficult little set of falls to shoot, the time of day and the light made things a bit tricky and as such I opted for a really close tight panorama view to try and convey the scene with its many over hanging ferns, branches and water seemingly dropping from the bright clouded sky.

I could almost reach out and touch the fern on the right, a bracketed panorama to achieve the desired dynamic range and encapsulate the pool and surrounds.

Techie data:
D7000 with Tokina 11-16mm f2.8 @ 11mm Aperture: f/8 Shutter 8, 2 & 30 seconds. The bright frame was only used to bring a fraction of detail to that really shadowed overhang to the side of the falls
out front – Hoya screw in circular polariser and neutral density filter (3 stops)

I welcome any suggestions, comments and improvements to my photography, they are always warmly welcomed and always appreciate the time people take to have a look, plus and/or comment.
