    Another lovely image John and beautifully composed. I wouldn't change a thing. I guess this is quite an unusual landscape for Australia. . . .

    Certainly would be David for the dryer centre but quite common in pockets of rainforest along the eastern and southern parts of Australia.

    Beautiful John, great, great composition!!!!, the light, the shutter speed and the view of the waterfall are great!!!....there was some wind,no?...just because of some blur in the leaves...
    Best Regards!!!

    Yes you are quite right - the falls had created a lot of air disturbance, blurring the surrounding foliage at such a slow shutter speed.

    I too like the composition. The river, in a "V" shape draws the viewer's eye right too the falls. It needs a little bit of POP however,

    From a recommendation by David Kennedy in another thread: Local Contrast Enhancement. (USM filter at 20%, radius 50)

    My recommendation: Selective Color Adjustment in PSCS, add 2% black to the black and neutral color channels.

    Many thanks for the tips Robert. I have applied local contrast - amount 20 plus 50 radius to lower half of image and your 2% black to black and neutrals.

    The new image definitely has more punch John.

    Good job John. That bit of POP adds to the image.
