Cheers for looking in ... roast chicken for dinner this evening, nearly ready so I'll catch up when I can.

Is it just me or is the site a little slow tonight? Seem to be having a few speed issues which may be my end.

Great composition Paul.

Spot on with the histogram, too: I just examined it.
I think that high super-bright milky water is actually a bit distracting. Particularly the f/g. which is tending to pull the eye out of the frame rather than into it, and feels just too bright in comparison to the tonal range of the rest of the image.
Some gentle contrast work on the just the water would help redress this imbalance and yield by darkening it a tad and introducing a little more detail without countering the blurring effect of the nd.
I think it'd improve this a lot.
It's only my opinion, of course, with which you will doubtless disagree! But I have tried it and it worked for the better in my view.
Using the grad upsidedown may also have yielded a touch more texture in the water (maybe you did that!! Smile)

Hope your roast was good!

Cheers

Bill

Cheers Bill, fair comment too [I suppose Wink] ... though it doesn't unduly worry me too much as the light on the middle ground falls is actually running more through the canopy of trees whereas the fg falls you mention are nearer the viewing platform and there's a little more diffused light entering the scene as the canopy opens here. The white water is a little more 'white' due to the increased drop in the falls here ... so it's pretty faithful in that respect, but as you mentioned a reversed 1 stopper would address this.

Marked your comment as helpful though so hopefully it'll go green Smile

Thanks for your time though,
Paul

certainly looks in full flow with some good light and water movement capture here. Well worked.

Was flowing well Richard, a fair bit of shoot and wiping going on because of the light spray it generated. Cheers.

It's a nice shot but for me the water is too soft and milky. I would prefer a little more definition.

Fair enough Meredith, even though that's not what I set out for on here I can see your point-of-view, 'silky milky' isn't for everyone ... cheers Smile

Hehe you always seem to be just about to eat when you post. I wonder if Fran's cooking is as goood as your images... Love this one by the way and the contrasting strengths in the flow are captured perfectly by this shutter speed.
