Beautiful, Posforth Gill Waterfall in the Valley of Desolation (hence the title). Taken on Saturday afternoon, the sun was quite strong and i had to wait until it was slightly diffused by light cloud, 5 stops of ND filter to lengthen the exposure. Played with the composition for quite a while on this the large rock dominated at certain angles i tried composing without but i'm happy with this, i think its balanced quite well with the large rock to the right of the waterfall, but please let me know what you think. I have also added a slight vignette in the processing to focus attention onto the waterfall.

Well captured - fine flow of water perfectly exposed. Steve

Lovley shot. Well controlled exposure and well composed. I was interested in the fact that you were in Av mode and the shutter speed was 0.4 sec. It was obviously enough to smooth out the water though. I was taking pictures of waterfalls a couple of weeks ago and the weather was rubbish. I needed to be in Tv mode to ensure that I had at least 2 seconds to smooth the water. I suspect that the flow rate of the falls is quite different.

Anyway, enough rambling, I had great fun taking my pictures and I think that you did to!

I like the perspective on this, and the inclusion of the sky and trees to give scale and depth. Not always keen on milky water but it seems to work here and I can see your quandrary re the boulder.

thanks Nathan, i'm definitely amateur in both

thanks Dave, im not a big fan of overly milky water either.

thanks Nigel yes i was enjoying myself not the best light and a return at a different time might be on the cards. I was in AV mode as a wanted maximum depth of field and a pin sharp image (above f14 with the CMOS sensor and defraction starts softening the image) i then swapped ND filters about to get required shutter speed.

steve thanks for the early comment yesterday

Looks good to me Paul and the exposure looks spot on and a nice bit of sky as a bonus
