Somersby Falls HDR

Somersby Falls, Cerntral Coast, NSW, Australia.

This was my first set-up after I arrived at the falls just as the rain started. I had to do a bit of cloning to remove 5 or 6 water droplets that blew onto my lens during the 3 exposures. I thought the shots would be unusable when I first saw they had large spots on them (like thumbnail size spots on an A4 sheet). Luckily none of them were in the middle where they would have been too difficult to work around. I was happy that I could rescue something out of the shots with post-processing.

 

For comparison, See my single-exposure, close to SOC shot taken a couple of minutes later here:
