Thanks!  That's the "12" Apostles, yeah.  Another one has collapsed since I took that :(

I've been back a few times with newer gear to retake the same shot at higher resolution (taken on a 20D), but I've never seen the waterfall there again (or in any other photo Ive seen of them).

Nice one ions... a little shadow highlight post processing would make it even more dramatic. While the highlights are a bit washed out, I love the water see through.

I can tell how you f'ed it up, you put all that damn text over it!

No, I only had a light weight tripod (Benro) and ball head with me and the lens used to take the photo (70-300) was too heavy for the tripod to keep everything completely still for the long duration (30s) of the shot. Had I of had my Manfrotto with me, it would have been a different story. At 100% magnification, you can see that Half Dome (for example) is not sharp. Why didn't I have the Manfrotto? Because I went out for the weekend, planning to do a bunch of walking... but maybe I just need a stronger ball head.

Here's my most popular print to date. Taken with a Canon 5D and a 16-35IIL and a CPL in Slovenia.
This was three bracketed exposure shots, contrast blended into a single in PS. I'm not a big fan of HDR, so i prefer this technique using a wide range of identical images except for exposure and then blending them into a single file with a nice contrast range and perfect histogram.

GMC, a great shot.  the clarity of the water is astounding.  I agree with your comment on HDR, there are many more subtle ways to blend exposures that look much more appealing than with all the halos and unnaturally dark elements you get from HDR
