Sharplin Falls by mark-flammable Sharplin Falls by mark-flammable
This was a great waterfall I went to in the Canterbury foot hills after returning to Christchurch early when our West Coast road trip turned to crap the day after Monro Splash with sickness and fog.

It sits at the bottom of Mt. Summers that I will be doing a weekend tramp over soon. These falls really were massive - a good 5m high with some MASSIVE boulders around!

*EDIT* A couple of localised changes to the processing

Nice greens. Good shutterspeed. Blown highlights in the water, though. Nice clarity throughout.

I know about the blown highlights... I was annoyed at myself for that! I am back there soon so might try this same composition with my 10stop ND and blend it with a shot without for the rocks etc.

BTW, do you shoot in RAW? One of the advantages of shooting in RAW is that you can recover many of those blown highlights, unlike jpg. I shot jpg for the longest time, but finally I forced myself to try RAW and now I wished I'd done it years ago.

I always shoot raw. Always have too.

I resisted shooting RAW because no one actually gave me any good reasons why I should...and I don't do things just because the "herd" tells me to. :laughing:

Fair enough! Me neither... but I read some reasons why it was good so I did.
I went back to that raw file and double processed it for the water - re uploaded... what do you think now?
