Yet another shot from Friday 28 June 2013, in The Valley Of The Waters, Blue Mountains National Park, NSW, Australia.

This was taken immediately after "Empress Falls". Again another 3-shot Shift, but this time Tilt was also engaged for a field of focus which I positioned from the top of the falls to the tree and rocks in the foreground. And this time I reduced each exposure by 10 seconds to 80 seconds.

I was anxious to finish shooting at this stop for several reasons. First, the ideal light and weather could not be guaranteed to last long (as it turned out, it did, making it one of my best ever shoots in the Blue Mountains). Second, I was anxious to start the climb up on the left of the falls to shoot the first spout from the side (which I did). Third, I also wanted to continue down the valley to shoot as many of the subsequent falls as I could in the time available (which I also did).

Post was mainly concerned with luminance and contrast adjustments.
