Leura Cascades, Blue Mtns, NSW by MattLauder Leura Cascades, Blue Mtns, NSW by MattLauder
This shot is located in the Blue Mountains about an hours drive outside of Sydney. This waterfall was one that I had never been too and decided to explore on the recent course I ran recently.

Very tight location to shoot with walkways infront and around you and we were lucky to have overcast rain conditions when shooting but I would have liked for a darker kind of light to balance the shot more as you shoot from a shallow cave. But hey you cant win them all.

Personally I would prefer the lighter version of this. The darkness becomes too anonymous to my eyes :) A matter of taste of course!

Yep all a matter of taste. Thanks for the honest feedback. I would have liked it lighter but the undergrowth was too dead.

Super strong again. I would like a little bit of shadow recovery (maybe threshold of 5) so all detail isnt lost left and right of the falls. Otherwise killer.

All the detail in the shadow to the left and right of the falls is dead under growth... ugly stuff.

Hmm, intersting point. What about bringing it to just past full black so there is a hint of detail but the viewer cant tell what it is? Just something about the dead space feels weird. Maybe just me...
