    Had a pleasant wee trip to lake Okataina, near lakes Rotoma, Rotoiti in the Bay of Plenty.

    There were only a handful of people there, just lovely, the water was warm and the day was beautiful.

    Looks like a beautiful place Jos, well captured.

    I wonder how long before they hold there hand up for bunkering low grade coal for the return trip, low grade coal doesn't fully combust and hot small embers come out the stack.

    Give an Artist a box of different sized colour blocks and he will create an art work; give me the same box and I will sort it by colour and then size :)

    Went out again today to test my stamina and grabbed a couple of shots. Stamina didnt stand well so didnt do the 100ft climb down for a better (lower) angle on the rapids

    Indeed we were!

    It's a special place, like Otarawairere.

    Here's another photo after a play

    Isn't that the same pic you posted at the top of this page?
    The pp isn't bad it just doesn't seem to be quite sharp anywhere, could it be your ND filter?

    Something to try in camera raw (you have the latest version I think), there is a graduated filter and a radial filter along the top. The radial filter is excellent for lightening or darkening certain areas, as well as controlling clarity and all sorts. Make sure that feathering is set to max and then click drag an circle or oval shape where you want to adjust stuff. You can add multiple ones and each new one will start with the settings from the previous one. To get rid of one right click on it's dot. You have to remember to go back to the hand tool to get control of the whole image again when you are happy with your radial adjustments. On the waterfall I'd lighten up the rocks near the top and perhaps the ones left bottom. I'll have a play to show you if you like.
