Martin Creek Falls Revisited

So I got the chance a few weeks ago to revisit some of the falls I had previously photographed a year or two ago.


Equipped now with my 12MP Nikon D5000 as opposed to my 6MP Canon S3IS, I was insanely excited to visit some of these falls again and get a few better quality captures of them.


So here, again, we have Martin Creek Falls... revisited! In my previous shot I believe I was actually in the water, but you lose view of a great deal of the upper falls. Here I positioned my camera vertically on the tripod on the deck in front of the falls, as far to the right as I could manage so as to not hide the left side of the falls behind the leaves.


And another revolution in my photo besides a new (much better) camera: Photomatix! I processed 3 bracketed exposures for this image. Hopefully the fact that is is an HDR isn't too obvious as I tried to avoid the over-saturation, halos, and ghosts seen in a lot of other HDR images.


So how does it compare to my previous? Please let me know what you think!
