    Snug falls is around 40~ minutes out of Hobart and is always pretty when it has been raining or is raining. Today we went down when it was raining hard and of course we got drenched but the covering trees blanketed us from the showers briefly.

    Excellent shots wisie! The only thing that sort of annoys me is the tree movement above the waterfall from the first shot. I know you can't really do much about it (shutter needs to be open longer), but it was the first thing that caught my attention about the photo. The waterfall and water down the bottom of the first photo looks awesome though!

    Nice work Wisie. Sure looks different compared to when I was there in December. The water was barely dripping over then!

    Next time I will come visit Tassie in winter. :D

    Very nice, ND filters?

    The first shot has a dark patch that looks like you forgot to completely paint over with another layer?

    No editing just levels however was tempted to fix up the sky in the first shot but really couldn't be bothered. Thanks for the comments :)

    Great shots, the lines in #1 draw me right into it, brilliant use of such a simple yet effective technique.

    Longer exposure will show the water flowing better. If there is decent amount of water running, then anything over a second should do it nicely.
    (exact time would depend on ambient lighting etc.)

    This looks GREAT wisie- particularly the first one!

    People told me I was crazy booking a holiday in Tassie in Winter, but I reckon this is justification enough. :D
    I arrive in Launceston this Friday!!

    Really like this type of water shot/water flow shot.
    They only thing that bugs me a little is that the foreground water effect isn't as appealing as the mid and background. Doesn't look like flowing water to me and tends to overwhelm the awesome waterfall rather than draw me to it.

    Just my own crappy brain maybe:wired:

    Awesome shot though:thumbup:

    Nice set there Alex. I had no idea about the falls either. Yet another place I will have to visit with the camera!!

    Really just levels? Looks mighty like a HDR to me, unless you've done dogde/burning in the sky. Just that section in the trees that's darker but still was obviously blown out in the original looks like it's been HDR'ed using domain gradient compression, like in Photomatix... Meh, all the same they're really beautiful shots :).
