Nice one, Bernard (the waterfall). You certainly wouldn't want a high ISO for that. In fact, even with a tripod, you'd be struggling to get a low enough ISO   .

Did you use a neutral density filter?

Very nice, Bernard.

Say, I've got an idea that will free you up to work on your new images: Just send me all of your "old" stuff.  

Best,

Eric

I like the first one, but it seems too busy to me.  Would have been awfully tempting to go and rip out all of those plants standing in the foreground (the nerve of them!  Growing there like that...).  I really like the second one.  At first glance it made me want to tilt my head to the left to get the 'proper' perspective, until I realized that the mountains in the background are level and it just looks like the hillside is falling into the trees.

Did you use an on-lens filter for the tones, or adjust things in Photoshop after?  Has an IR look to it.

Mike.

I know... but the place being on the UNESCO World Heritage Area, I thought I'd probably rather not...  I actually have a single capture with a longer lens that focuses on the fall only.

Everything was done in PS with various adjustement layers.

The grass area on the right in the foreground was indeed not flat.

Would it be possible to make a longer pano with the first one to crop off some of the foreground? I find it a bit too much.

As for the 2nd one, bit more contrast in the sky to seperate the clouds out but otherwise its a great image!

It sure would be possible to do that, I have actually tried, and ended up prefering the current version. But that is just me of course, I appreciate your opinion.

Thanks about that also, the sky looked darker on my calibrated screen than it does on my regular laptop, I might have to check my callibration...

I appreciate the opportunity to view your waterfall image.  the lighting/colors set a mood that I find exceptionally peaceful.  I suppose it may be considered "busy" technically, however, I found myself being drawn into the scene, and enjoyed studying its details.

First shot:
I'm gonna take a contrarian perspective and suggest it could be improved by including more of the waterfall on top. It feels sort of like a portrait where the top of the subject's face is cut off right in the middle of the eyes. IMO a wider FOV including more subject up and right would be a great improvement. I love the grass/plants in the foreground, they need to stay.

Second shot:
Don't change a damn thing.

Jonathan,

Good to hear from you. Thanks for the advice, I see your point.

I might have material to add some bits to the top, I'll have to check that out.

Regards,
Bernard
