    I pass this little spot on my way to work all the time. They have a sort of walking trail through this magical little place. There is even a pirate ship in the lagoon above the falls, but I couldn't get a good shot of it.

    Not sure which perspective of the waterfalls/garden I like best. I do hate that tree that cuts through the scene in #1 and #1. Any preference by you guys?

    Thanks for looking.

    I like the the third one the best but would prefer to see most or all of the bridge cropped. Maybe see more of the still lake surface. I agree the trees make it difficult.

    Wow :thumbup: very beautiful. Where ever you work it must be nice to have something like that nearby.

    I'm trying to do that effect with the running water like that. Could you tell me what settings you used please? How much post production work did you have to do?

    Thanks for the comment everyone. I have driven by this place a pile of times and finally decided to stop and shoot it.

    Mole: it was a really dark cloudy morning so I was able to use a really slow shutter speed (plus I had polarizer on which slowed it down even more). All the exposures were between 4 and 8 seconds on shutter priority so aperture changed accordingly. Some PS was used, levels, cropping and a bit of saturation boost but nothing too crazy.

    I hope to go back one day after it has rained so the colours are even more saturated and maybe try some different points of view (like with more water Dr Dan).

    Thanks again everyone.
