TASMANIAN RAIN FOREST by Stanley Selkow

August 2020 - TASMANIAN RAIN FOREST

About the Image(s)

The photo was taken in 2012 in Tasmania, Australia. It was incredibly rich all around us. I made sure to get tree ferns in the image (a favorite for me), and capturing the waterfall conveyed the moisture in the air. My camera was a Nikon Coolpix P100, the exposure was 1/19 sec at f/2.8 with an ISO 400.

This is a well chosen location and a very interesting view. However, it's lacking a bit of "oomph". I've taken the liberty of playing with it a bit using Topaz and wonder what you think.   Posted: 08/02/2020 15:21:35

I like it. Would you tell me what you did? It seems that you increased the exposure which brightened the greens. Is that right? What else did you do?   Posted: 08/02/2020 15:27:22

I have all of the Topaz filters and rely very heavily on them. I am sorry but I should have noted at the time which one I used. Chances are it was Adjust AI. May I suggest that you view some of the online tutorials for the different filters in Studio 2. You will find them fascinating. Also, if you didn't see the Luminar webinar you might want to see that one as well as they also have some amazing "stuff".   Posted: 08/07/2020 06:11:42

I like this image. The only thing I'm wondering is why you did not use more depth of field.   Posted: 08/09/2020 20:26:26

Stanley,
What a fine view. I wish that the water fall and the sky were not so bright. It is really hard to get an exposure when the range is so wide. The image feels the the reward after a long trek.   Posted: 08/11/2020 18:07:18

This is an interesting shot, as it seems to almost combine the two different scenes (lush, shady, green forest & bright, illuminated waterfall). I agree with Lloyd that perhaps the waterfall might be a bit bright or overexposed. The ferns and trees seem to be a little fuzzy. However, I would imagine doing that trek while carrying a tripod would likely have been out of the question. My first digital camera was also a Nikon Coolpix, so given that was the camera, I understand why you were trekking around without a tripod. Regardless, great shot of a place that few might rarely ever visit or see.   Posted: 08/12/2020 18:02:44
