    A big day out again photography wise yesterday, but decided to have relaxing day today. Play time for a few of my images taken earlier this year.

    @hired goon I would say those falls are amongst the more difficult scenes I’ve tried to photograph. The scene easily confuses the cameras inbuilt metering, particularly the WB. It’s good to see the log has now gone, although some images I’ve recently seen the water flow does lose some of its impact without the log extending it.

    If Skylum (formerly Macphun) is able to include decent digital asset management in Luminar in 2018, I feel we could have some competition for Adobe.

    Enjoying your photos Ken, like @soundbyte I’ve been photographing native orchids. Yesterday I got a few bird shots but nothing spectacular.

    The forecast last evening was for warm and light breeze, so I took the opportunity to check out the native orchids. Unfortunately, the mosquito's were out in force. Anyway I managed to get a few focus stacks of the duck-orchids, and also managed a few images of sun-orchids. The breeze was too much to try focus stacks on the sun-orchids. #1 10 image focus stack Large duck-orchid #2 Blue-star sun-orchid

    Thanks Mick, I couldn't get over how small they are. I've now photographed a few of them, but they usually being blown around in the breeze, so not always easy.
