  • Here is another totally different derivative of the original:

  • The waterfall and the swirling leaves are really two separate features that happen to be in the same original photograph. Trying to show both in one picture makes the picture confusing by lacking a point, and neither will look good.
  • After clipping to make the picture about the swirls, I expanded the dark/light range of the input to the full dark/light range of the output. This time I also added some color correction to make the white parts of the waterfall white.
  • Since the pool is now the main focus, it needed to be brighter. I did logarithmic brightening of the intermediate shades. The setting in my program is 3.0, which means the incremental brightness from the linear original is expanded by 2<sup>3.0</sup> = 8 times at the dark end relative to the bright end.

The waterfall and the swirling leaves are really two separate features that happen to be in the same original photograph.  Trying to show both in one picture makes the picture confusing by lacking a point, and neither will look good.

After clipping to make the picture about the swirls, I expanded the dark/light range of the input to the full dark/light range of the output.  This time I also added some color correction to make the white parts of the waterfall white.

Since the pool is now the main focus, it needed to be brighter.  I did logarithmic brightening of the intermediate shades.  The setting in my program is 3.0, which means the incremental brightness from the linear original is expanded by 2<sup>3.0</sup> = 8 times at the dark end relative to the bright end.
