Cathedral Rock Sunrise by DrewHopper Cathedral Rock Sunrise by DrewHopper
Cathedral Rock National Park, NSW Australia. Huge granite boulders balancing on top of the New England Tablelands make striking subjects for photography. The diversity of flowering plants and mosses which thrive in the boggy heathland make this place diverse for bush-walkers and photographers. In the late afternoon you may see grey kangaroos and swamp wallabies feeding. The birdlife is prolific, with the large variety of eucalypts and wildflowers attracting small woodland birds such as rose robins, flycatchers and pardalotes.

Nice scene...gotta watch that left side. Way too empty...maybe try crop square...should tighten it up a bunch. Wooop

I'm going to have to disagree with your comment aF. I think it's balanced with the sunrise on the right the rocks in the center and then the open space on the left with the rocks meeting to the corresponding side as the sunrise on the right. I'm not a big fan of square images unless they're fine art monochrome shots, usually long exposure squares do it for me. Unfortunately this does not work in B&W, the colour is too nice to convert. Thanks for your input :P

There's no interest over on the left side. The strong weight in the picture is the boulders up front and then the brightest point...which is the sun. So the eye lands quickly on the boulders and heads through to the sun rendering the left side just hanging there. Maybe 4:5 instead of square cropping just to the left of the closest boulder...actually like that idea much better. Just saying...boom

Great landscape Drew go back and bring some clouds with you. Still a great shot but you should fix the light blue.

Thanks Tobias, but what is wrong with the blue sky? If you're referring to the sky on the left above the horizon I already know it needs to be fixed. I'll get around to it before I upload it on my website :P
