I went out to Cypress Falls on the weekend in West Vancouver, and I thought I'd share some of the waterfall pix I took. I also took many shots of the forest, but in this thread I have the two waterfalls. C&C welcome.

1) Lower Cypress Falls

2) Looking down at the top of the lower falls. It's a long way down to the bottom!

3) Another top view.

4) Looking towards the top of the lower falls, down stream.

5) Upper Cypress Falls

Very nice shots. I really like #6. The face in the rock is really interesting.


Not sure why, but call me JJ.
I used to hate math but then I realised decimals have a point.

Hmm, to be honest, I think the HDR ruins a few of these. Some of them look waay over-processed.

Looks like you had a good time there. I do agree with CBownPhoto on the HDR effects. Can you try PP without HDR?

Thanks. I noticed the rock face when I got home and was editing the pix. Nice little bonus!

Without HDR the shadows are too dark, or the waterfall is completely blown out, so it is needed. Perhaps the contrast is a bit much though.
