Fairy Bower Falls, Morton National Park
Celebration: countdown 34

A spray of water, long pendulous roots and ferns cling to this fragile rock-face partway down the Bundanoon canyon.

Image: Cliff faces are the natural enemy of cameras: high contrast environments inevitably mean the lit part of your shot will be overexposed and the shadows will be underexposed. Ordinarily, in poor light with mist rising i would try a HDR composition to even out the contrast or a long exposure to flesh out the shadows (frustrated here because of clouds of mist rising from the nearby large fall and a healthy breeze up the escarpment.

Instead, i took a series of stills from a video i took of this scene. Rewatching the video, i was struck by a significant difference in the white and brightness balance between the dynamic and momentary images. In the dynamic, the static elements (cliff face and vegetation) seemed darker and the shadows deeper while the spray of water was distinct and brighter. This was most noticeable in the top left of the image, where brightness in the undercliff reflections in the still image originally swamped the fall.

I have tried to deal with this using a series of differential filters and by using a technique i have explained previously - placing the original image beneath a 40-60% translucent and desaturated image toned for structure.

Inevitably there is a trade off - a DSLR will be defeated by mist and wind - a video is not going to capture fine detail.

Celebrate: Thank you. To celebrate what we all achieved on G+, i am publishing the 50 most viewed posts in this collection until shutdown. This is a reprocessed image of side falls to the lower Bundernoon Creek Falls (34th most viewed - viewed 1,917,409 times).

This Chicks Sunday Commentary: Book-Blogger Mashup!

At work the other day someone described a friends personality as you would describe a fine wine. You know “she’s bold with an undertone of ripe raspberry’s growing on the coast of California, with a hint of salt”. It got me thinking, I have been following many of you for a few years and after reading some of your reviews, can almost provide my own Book-Blogger Mashup.

Instagram wants you to look like a good person, but Facebook just wants your credit card - Shopping on Instagram has been getting bigger and bigger and Mark Zuckerberg has made it clear that enabling more commerce on Instagram is a priority for the 2019. But, the company seems to be starting with a bit of a Trojan horse in order to remove a bit of friction, and the Trojan horse is a very interesting one: donating to charities through Instagram Story stickers. To be fair, a Donation sticker ...

"Deep learning may need a new programming language that's more flexible and easier to work with than Python, Facebook AI Research director Yann LeCun said."

"There are several projects at Google, Facebook, and other places to kind of design such a compiled language that can be efficient for deep learning, but it's not clear at all that the community will follow, because people just want to use Python."

"The first portion of the paper is devoted to lessons LeCun took away from Bell Labs, including his observation that the AI researchers' and computer scientists' imaginations tend to be tied to hardware and software tools."

"LeCun reiterated his belief that self-supervised learning will play a major role in advancing state-of-the art AI."

"If self-supervised learning eventually allows machines to learn vast amounts of background knowledge about how the world works through observation, one may hypothesize that some form of machine common sense could emerge."

This Chick Read: Fall (VIP #3) by Kristen Callihan

Fall is the third novel in VIP, a rock star romance series by Kristen Callihan. Having had the story of two previous members in this band (well, #2 was about their Manager but..) we already know Jax Blackwood’s history. He was the catalyst to Killian’s escape from reality in VIP. Jax is the best friend who tried to kill himself and sent the band whirling into despair and confusion. Knowing this, I wondered how Ms. Callihan was going to inject a lightness into this troubled man’s story. That injection came in the form of Stella, a funny “free spirit” who dares to knock down Jax’s mental blockade and make him feel again.
