Wow, Mike. Again, what a shot! The misty-looking water created by the long exposure adds very nicely to lead the eye up the cascade and into the mountain, where it ends at a stunning example of alpenglow. Beautiful photograph! I myself, just recently, bit the bullet and purchased a Hoya Circular Polarizing filter and a Tiffen 0.9 Neutral Density filter. I'm trying to get the silky water effect, but for some reason, everytime I capture, even at f/22 and ISO 100, the exposure still comes out to only 4 seconds or less. I can't get 15 seconds or 30 seconds for those really silky waterfall pictures. I need advice again, my good friend .
This scene is magical. The sunlight on the cliff gives an illusion of warmth that is cooled by the silveriness (is that a word?) of the silken water. I love the sharpness in the rocks. Beautifully composed and taken. Well done sir.
Beautiful alpenglow, great compo 'feet in the water' and crazy 'from the bottom' perspective showing us we are in front of something totally huge, you bring really fantastic pics from the greatest places on Earth, thanks for sharing them, also happy too to see you are part of the family of TimeCatcher now..Keep it up! Cheers Michael Olivier
You really have an eye for what looks good and know how to make it look even better. I'd love to give some constructive feedback, but this is too perfect. :f
Btw, I like the red cloud on the right, I think it provides an extra touch that adds to the overall feeling. I feel it would be a tad bit vacant without it. You can PhotoShop remove it (not hard to do actually) and you'll see what I mean.
