Darling Harbour for Sunset
Just a reminder that if you’re keen to get out and about with your camera gear with a few like minded people, then here is your chance! I have another free and fun PhotoWALK planned for the 5th of May at Darling Harbour. CLICK HERE to go to my PhotoWALK page where you will find all the details about this event.
Today’s iCandy – Liffey Dreaming
This was one of the best waterfalls I had ever visited. It was such a nice rainforest and the falls were spectacular. To get this shot I had to walk out into the stream across a really slippery surface, I sort of did the thunderbird shuffle, using my tripod as a walking frame and slowly sliding my feet forward, step by step.

[tabbed tabs=”Camera|Mode|ISO|Aperture|Shutter|Lens|Filter|Other info”] [tab] I used my trusty D800 for this one [/tab] [tab] I used Aperture Priority (aka AV) [/tab] [tab] ISO100 – I always shoot as low as possible [/tab] [tab] f22 – This gave me a slower shutter speed creating the silky water effect [/tab] [tab] 1/2 a second – This is all that was needed to get the water movement as it was flowing really fast [/tab] [tab] I used my Nikon 14-24mm lens – boy I love this lens! [/tab] [tab] No Filter Used [/tab] [tab] I used Lightroom to increase contrast, vibrance and clarity. Then a quick crop and that’s it! [/tab] [/tabbed]
