No tripods were allowed in the cave, so i had to sit the camera on the ground and guess at the exposure as the light was only like this for a very limited amount of time.

I didn't do much in the way of editing, just dropped the exposure in post by about 1 stop and added a tiny bit of fill light. Small amount of noise reduction in lightroom and a touch of sharpening.

I think this would benefit from a tighter crop. Most of the right side of the image is unnecessary.

This is such a great capture that has a lovely reflection. I feel it could even have been better with a squarer crop removing some of the dark are to the right.
