    Going to upload a few pics a day, took a whole heap of photo's - here are the first four. All shots on my trusty Canon 20d.
    1

    Rivermouth out to the sea. Heaps of light so a quick handheld shot with fast shutter at f13 ISO 100.



    2

    Shot into the sunlight so was taken f22, I did use a Tripod, edited the curves and added a vignette with a big brush on a new layer - repeat a couple of times with each layer being somewhere near 2% for transparancy.



    3

    This is an HDR from 3 exposures, blended in Artizen and then curves and resize in photoshop.

    I like this, bit of a candid shot. The exposure and DOF washed out the backgroud well enough with only a little slotch needing a swift cloning and then a curves adjustment.

    Hope you enjoyed the pics, keep a look out as I'll be making a heap of topics around here with Crocodiles, Parrots, Train Rides and a Balloon trip over the rainforest. ;)

    Please leave any comments or crits here. Feedback is appreciated as are crits as I'm always keen to learn but of course can't reshoot. ;)

    Yeah, it was an amazing sight, would have been kicking myself if I didn;t have the camera at that moment! Thanks.

    Cheers - glad it wasn't my head it landed on.

    They are good and make me look forward to your next installment. I was at first expecting to see a lot more green when I read where you spent your holidays, but maybe all the green is yet to come? ;)
