Here’s a pretty place. Sheoak Falls, situated along the Great Ocean Road in Victoria, Australia is a fun spot well worth the short walk from the car park.

While not a particularly grand waterfall the location provides photographers with good access opportunities to the falls and surrounding area. While framing this image I was mindful of emphasizing the scenes major visual elements: water, both still and moving, texture and tonality.

The 1/4 second exposure provided the right blend of mystery and substance for the water coming over the waterall.

The image was converted into black-and-white in Adobe Lightroom 2, prior to some final local tonal adjustments in Adobe Photoshop CS3.
