Making sense of my photography hobby in retirement

Purakaunui Falls Revisited

Some time ago I posted an image of the Purakaunui Falls that I took on a trip to the Catlins in the Southland region of the South Island of New Zealand.  That image was taken on my second visit to the falls, the first visit being when in the early 1980s we took our (then) three young sons on a touring holiday of the South Island.  Both visits were prompted by a photograph we had seen of the falls that appeared in a calendar, I think, which was taken by the well known New Zealand landscape and nature photographer Craig Potton. The striking thing to me back then was how Craig had captured a silky looking waterfall in his image.  At that time I had no idea how he had made the image, but over the years I too learned how it is done.

Since that first post I have been wanting to revisit the image and render it differently, and maybe add another view of the falls as well.  So, here is take two.
