[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Minnamurra Falls is the central attraction of Budderoo National Park on the south coast of New South Wales. Situated in a protected area of temperate rainforest close to where I live, I usually try and visit the falls once a year. A 3km raised board walk takes the visitor through the cool lush rainforest and up to the falls. After a 40minute walk you are rewarded with this beautiful waterfall.

Wow is the only word i can say. A pristine environment depicted very well, your 2 seconds exposure worked really well to give you a beautiful and dreamy effect!

Hi Cris,
Beautiful silky water effect and very nice waterfall. Just fits in the photo. A bit of overexposure on the upperpart of the fall, wich was probably difficult to avoid.
Well done and TFS

Hi Chris,

This is beautiful. I like POV, contrast and the mouvement of the water. Very well done and nice! TFS,

Hi Chris,
Place worth visit. Waterfalls with green color carpeting the surrounding cliff - a fantastic scene. Excellent composition and pov. TFS

Hi Chris.
It is a very beautiful place with a lovely waterfall, just the kind of places I like so much.
Very nice exposure, expecially with a compact cam. Great vivid green tones.
Well done, TFS.

AAAHHH.... What a lovely, refreshing scene!
(We are going through an unprecedented 43 degree + heat wave)
What I wouldn't do to cool myself in those cascading waters. : )
Great effect on the water via long exposure.
Excellent composition that gives a good feel of the area.
Thanks for hiking up there for us, Chris. : )

Lovely shot - it looks magical. The colours and light are superb. Makes me want to go there

Hi Chris,
What a beauty. So many different drops to go before the water finally hits the bottom, your eyes just keep going up and down. Besides from the OE spots, your exposure is very good. I like your composition, but I find the dead wood on the right too disturbing and would take it of.

Hi Chris,

Beautiful shot.
Excellent exposition and time.
Amazing sharp, colors and composition.
Very well done and great job!

TFS :-)
