Majestic Tristania by DrewHopper Majestic Tristania by DrewHopper
The beautiful Tristania Falls - Dorrigo World Heritage National Park just as the mist envelops the surrounding rainforest, such a significant drop in temperature. I was forced to wait under a giant palm for the rain to pass, I'm really glad I did because conditions like these you can't pass up.

Mainly a slight saturation tweak and contrast boost here. The difference from the original and the update is more noticeable when you compare side by side. Enjoy!

Magnificent! I can't stop staring at this. The scene is almost mystical. The mist-like effect to the water really adds to it.

I'm really wondering how you get the water so beautiful and magical!
camera on tripod and long shutter-time?
what's your secret? ;)

Awesome photo!
I've been there, and thought you had gone off the bridge. Was it entirely easy to jump over it?
With the huge drop behind you.
Anyway, love the colours and the movement.
:) Lovely shot.

If you walk over the bridge and follow the path to the right, it will lead you to the bottom of the falls.

Damn, that is good. I love everything about this, save one tiny portion -- the top of the falls. They seem a bit over-exposed. I'm sure you shot in RAW -- do you think you could extract some detail and use a layer mask to get a bit back up there?
