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

Now this is certainly something different from your usual motifs. Guess you'll have to explore some of the farther regions of AU once you're fed up with Seascapes and Rainforstes huh? Great composition although you didn't seem to have much luck with the clouds on that particular morning. I assume though it must have been a blast camping there between the rocks. :)

I guess you could say I'm fed up with seascapes, everyone around here seems to be doing them and they're getting old to me. I still have a strong passion for the ocean though, so I'll never completely steer away from my seascapes. Just need to expand my portfolio to cater for a wider audience. Thanks mate!

I can imagine that it's getting old once everyone starts hanging around at the spots that were yours almost exclusively a while back. You're lucky to live in one of the most diverse and interesting countries landscape wise - so you'll have plenty of new areas to explore. ;)

Very nice Drew, Looks to be a bit of a clime to get to. Don't think a hike out of that spot in the dark would be any fun. Sure makes me want to be their.

hmm that yellow orange on the horizon has got a bit ugly so I might look at some changes there but otherwise this is nothing short of spectacular Drew and the composition is great :)
