It ain`t over till it is over it seems..?

 

Went back to one of the local waterfalls and cleaned more plastic out of it...and took a few pics.

 

Perhaps if you are all gone no one will see them, but as ever they are nothing special..

 

Used a CP on both to try to cut down on reflections,though the sun was at my back.. Also this time I had f11 selected and kept it there. Also used my tripod mounted in the burn/stream..

 

First 323kb

 

f11  1/6th  ISO 100   Nikkor [email protected] 24mm

 

Second 295kb

 

f11  1/8th   ISO  100   same lens @52mm

They're nice.  I'd prefer a darker sky in the first picture as it draws the eye away from the stream

 For most of these pics I was trying to keep the sky out of the scene to save me fitting an ND grad while paddling around in the steep and moss covered waterfall while trying to avoid my shadow...(-:

Beautiful.

I like no.2.   The shadows in the first one make too hectic for me.

No.2 has great lines

I prefer _DSC1009 in this series. My recommendation would be to raise the exposure by 0.5 - 0.75 stops, drop the highlights in the stream, and add a soft vignette (maybe -20 to -25 in Lightroom).

Well-placed camera on this one.

Thanks for the CC guys.  Rod I agree about the shadows, though all the burns/streams hereabouts tend to have a lot of growth on their banks brambles and other bushes and of course trees... it is a bit of a toss up, either you like the green of the moss being well lit or visit on a cloudy day and loose the benefit of the bright light... With the camera set on timer I was ducking down to avoid my shadow being in the pic..

 

TknoGeek, sorry I do not have Lightroom and thus use NX2 (came with my camera) I upped the exposure .6 and utilised max on highlight protection in the hope the effect might work reasonably for the water, though no vignette control available.. (posted alongside the original above) 

Chuffed that you liked the camera position on 009..(-: I tried a few positions up and down the waterfall and consider myself fortunate to have found this one when viewed through the viewfinder..(-;  Yup got a LOT to learn, and trouble remembering that which I have learned..! Thanks again guys.

I like them Geedee, especially 0937 and 1009. The water flow looks green and the greens pop nicely. Well done
