Scalebar Sunshine

By GillyB    
Beautiful sunshine yesterday morning ....lovely to view the countryside and to meet up with ePzers Keith, Pete, Tony, Craig, Jude and Bill .....but not lovely or easy to capture Scaleber Force with all that light bouncing around and reflecting off the water!

How I wished for a bit of cloud cover!

If this looks dreadful please do tell Smile

Thanks as always for your time.

Are you having a laugh? This looks really good from where I'm sitting, and the light dancing around on the back waterfall only adds to the illusion. Superb work.

Overall I like this - it's somewhere I would love to visit.

The moving water has come out really well - just soft enough, but not too misty.

The foreground is interesting with the leaves, but it looks a little over-sharpened/ contrasty - it's bloomin' hard to capture water in strong sunlight, I agree.

Compositionally, I feel there is a little "dead space" in the middle of the image, where the water is dark and still. Perhaps the stillness is an effect of the long exposure.

Thanks everyone ..... perhaps in retrospect I should have got one of the others to pose in the middle of the shot?? Wink

There are 2 beautiful shots in this image. The top left and the bottom right. Both are excellent, just needs cropping appropriately

I love how you captured the shot..the shade and lighting are lovely and you captured the autumn color with the leaves and moss on the rocks... love it in other words

That foreground is pretty impressive as is the rest of the shot, not easy though in those conditions

Works for me. It's the diagonal shadows falling across the waterfall that catch my eye.

Not dreadful.
It is never easy to get water shots in this light but you have done a good job, some detail lost in foreground leaves but other than that a very nice image.

No doesn't look dreadful at all but you're right this is not an easy place to capture at all. Was there yesterday afternoon and still had contrasty light to deal with.

Many thanks Smile

Haven't been able to comment for the last 4 hours (apologies) as my keyboard stopped working. I knew it was wireless and not connected to the monitor but I didn't realise it wasn't connected to electricity either..... anyway I discovered the batteries but had to wait to recharge some before I could make it work again Smile

Phil, with so many excellent images around it is hard to be original so thank you for your comment Smile

At the time of shooting I was cursing that light as it was shining in all the wrong places, but as it's turned out that light has made a difference to the images and stopped them looking flat as it's normally the case with Scalaber.
