I finally got my Nikon 14-24 f2.8. I am very happy with my new aquisition and just wanted to share my initial results.
All feedback & CC greatly appreciated.

Wentworth Falls running well for a change after heaps of rain

My post apocalyptic impression of the Blue Mountains from Wentworth Falls. I think the constant rain has affected my creativity (3 image stitch)

You are not the only one - between work and the constant rain there has not been much chance of decent image making.
I have swopped my camera, tripod, and remote for snorkels and flippers up here in Queensland.
Well maybe later this week.
Oh well, at least I can continue to tidy up my catalog!

Quite impressive. In number 3 possibly a bit too much clarity slider?

Cheers, Boudewijn

I find the #2 offers an excellent starting point for further processing. Not in the direction of #3 though - nothing wrong with the direction itself, just that #2 works very well in the "normal" mode just as well.

I like how the lone, drifting cloud in the far right balances the waterfall compositionally. It is quite a serene image, in spite of the storm in the background. Or perhaps because of it - the clearing of the storm heralds serenity?

I really like #2. Hope you enjoy this lens.
#s 1 and 3 seem to have some over-exposed areas. It would be nice to have more structure in the water in #1 and darker sky in #3. IMO.

I'm joining the #2 supporters. For me, #1 is cropped too tight, especially at the bottom (I understand that trees might block the view). Image #3 looks a bit weird, the sky seems monochrome.

Thank you all for your feedback. Very much appreciated.
Please excuse my newbie ignorance, but could some one please explain what Slobodan means by "normal mode"?

I have also reworked #3 and would really appreciate some feedback. I am struggling with getting my crop right. Unfortunately the look out isn't central to the view and I am struggling to balance this image up. Thanks in advance for any assistance.

By "normal" I meant believable, natural, not HDR, grungy, gritty or over-processed.
