Ron - please excuse my fiddling with your photo. Pretty sure I know where you took this, probably downstream of the LODGE towards the nice big waterfall, either that or near WALDHEIM.

I also know that the forest there ALWAYS fools the camera into colour deviation and tries to make it too light.

Please excuse the meddling but I though you might like to have it looking more like you memory would expect.

By the way if you'd like to know what I did to it, PM me any time, I've put a lot of time into helping friends improve the camera fooled photos. smile

This version is not perfect either but it perhaps conveys more of the richness of colour LET ALONE THE TANGLED CONVOLUTED SHAPES IN THERE, THE SHEER "BUSY NESS" OF THE PLACE. smile

Hope I've not annoyed you by playing. confused

Hey Poida. I got super lazy and just used the pop up flash for light. Usually i pop a tissue over it as a diffuser but didn't even have one of them available at the time. It gave a bit of a catchlight though which was ok despite it being a bit harsh.

Ps. I like that bowerbird shot too.

Ron- I've once been on the Bloomfield track from Daintree to Cooktown and looked at Cape Trib from a lookout to the north. But only really passing through. Look forward to your photos. smile

I really enjoyed a dip in the freezing water of Woobadda Ck up in the hills - very slippery rocks in there too!!

I was astonished at how cold the stream waters could be up in that region!! grin

Brilliant little critters the jumping spiders, seen them jumping about 50mm here (Vic) from leaf/stick etc on the ground litter, very quick for size. Not as brightly coloured as yr northern specimens.

Terrific pics !

Thanks mate. I have a few now. They are brilliant subjects for macro. And quite common really.

What to do when you are stuck at home with only half an hour to spare? Whack on the macro and head into the backyard. [img:center][/img]
