scott you have exposed for the foreground here, a crop along the top of the first waterfall to have a more pano' upload may have attracted more interest. The sky is totally blown and an ND grad would have assisted here greatly but which strength of one depends on metering the exposure correctly, there's plenty of advise on this subject in the forums if you care to search Smile

Scott I agree, maybe even a full ND filter.
Try an overcast day, we get plenty of them in Ayrshire.

I would like to know the easiest way to find access to this location?

Another good one Scott. I agree with Stevie.

Thanks guys

Stevie - it's easy to get to this location, however it's not visible from the road, you need to walk down a hill a little.
When travelling along the road between Seamill and Farlie you will see a turning to your right hand side taking you onto the moors (there is a cafe called fins here). Take this turn and proceed up the moors road. About half way up the hill you will come to Farlie Moors Fishery on the right hand side. The waterfall is in the valley at the bottom of fishery. It only takes 2 mins to walk down to it.

Where is the falls in your portfolio? Is it on the road between Dalry and Saltcoats? In the valley way down on the left hand side on the way to Saltcoats?

Excellent location and composition. As Kin said, a couple of very strong ND grads would help the sky, along with going there when the light is more even.

I think you can make a double exposure for the B/G and f/G on the 350d Scott then blend in Photo shot...

Like the shot great colours and detail..

I think you have done well Scott with your exposure on the water as it is very open...good setting and I like all the contrasting colours.

This is a lovely scene, Scott, and you composed it well, with some very nice foliage and the movement of the water. Some good advice has been given about the sky.
