Excellent image. The detail and tones in the rocks are superb. The moving water looks brilliant and it is all topped by snow capped hills disappearing into moody clouds. I like the composition also with the foreground focal point off to the left and the background one to the right. Top work.
Absolutely gorgeous. Click

Brilliant landscape. Your shutter speed is just right for the waterfall.

I don't like that yellow border either. It's too bright and overpowering next to the subtle tones of this wonderful image!

There is lots I like about this image but the water effect is the least of it. It has no resemblance to real water in coulour and texture. Other than the falling water it looks a molten slaggy grey mess. For me this is a shame because the rest of the image is excellent.

Really caught my eye, with the sharpness of the flowing water and the crisp dof. It almost works as two seperate images as well, the foreground of the water, and the background of the mountain.

The foreground rocks and water are very sharp and full of good definition. I dislike the clouds over the mountain, they unbalance the image in my opinion. Sorry to go against the grain :/

Absolutely amazing. What more can I say...apart from Stunning. Not often Im lost for words, but I shall try to describe what I feel when viewing this image. Its oozes tranquillity. Theres sharp textured edges balanced with the smooth flowing of water... not forgetting the effect given by the superb lighting which gives this image a sense of 3Dism. It feels as though Im actually there, as if I can smell and touch the surroundings. And boy, am I looking forward to the day when I can produce an image that instil such feelings.

17 Jan 2005 1:10PM
This is a first class landscape. You have managed to combine aerial perspective with a beautifull soft light and perfect rendering of the water and sky. The other thing that makes it stand out is that it is almost monochromatic. This lends it an air of subtle mystery.
26 Jan 2005 12:13PM
great light texture and tone click click
Classy shot at the well visited area(by me too) you have a better shot than I have managed at this magnetic place.

All the best and well done,
