    I went there in May on a photo shoot with Tatra Mountain photography for 3 days. Had a really good time, it's a lovely spot and the trip was well organized.
    I'm pleased enough with the pics I got, I took my GH3 with 7-14, 12-35 and 35-100 lenses. I shot RAW and jpg and I'm very happy with the quality of the jpg's.
    Here's a link to my flickr site of the Plitvice pics, these are all ooc jpg's untouched except for a couple I cropped a bit.


    Please have a look and any comments welcome.

    Lovely scenery, lovely pictures.

    Personally, I've really taken to long exposure waterfalls/moving water - but that's just me :) ... Great job all round.

    Take a tripod and a wide angle lens, there's a fair bit of spray in some places so make sure you have a few lens cloths.
    It will be very busy when your going so I suggest you get there really early to get some shots in before the crowds arrive.

    I'm sure you will like it, I had a great time.

    Good advice about getting there early. I have visited Plitvice a few times and it always seems to get especially crowded around lunchtime and afternoon, I think that is when most tour groups visit. The boardwalks that take you close to the waterfalls can be quite narrow and get especially busy, so it's a good time to visit some of the footpaths further from the park entrance, or a bit higher up.

    I also found it very peaceful in the evening - but make sure you know how you will get back to base as you might end up with a long walk once the shuttle bus and boats stop running.

    Enjoy your visit, it really is a wonderful place.
