No long winded comments from me today... Just to say its one of your best images I've seen!


This is a cracker of a shot, Alan, I trust the Mamiya emerged from the torrent unscathed.
An epz member who no longer contributes used to proclaim his utter rejection of the modern technological era. He would only post black & white photos that he had taken with his professional Nikon D2 and made frequent use of the clone stamp in CS3 to remove all traces of motor cars . . . . Wink


Wow!!! Mark...I really, and I mean really, didn't think that wd happen! Thanks mate! Smile


I like the story, Bill. I've known 1 or 2 like that myself, in areas other than photography though.

As it happens, I went down rather painfully on my arse on the slippery wet rock. The Mamiya, solidly atop the steadfastness of a Benbo Mk1, remained aloof from my personal tragedy.

Your comment, as always, appreciated.


P.S. Good day at Shildon?

This is just so beautiful. It's the length of the trickles. I've tried photographing drips (no comments please) but never had much success, the flow of the water here is perfect.
Interesting, I'm wary of using portrait for obviously vertical subjects, I would instinctively go landscape, cut off the top and add space on the left. I reckon a 'tall' subject is difficult to compose for satisfyingly in a vertical frame - but this works. There's a sense of gravity, tugging everything downwards.
Edit - ah yes, photographer's first instinct, save the camera, your own body will self-repair more quickly. Shildon was enjoyable, though I only got one picture that I'm satisfied with. Bill photographed more flowers...

Thanks, Moira. You are as visually perceptive as ever, you should do l/scapes BlushBlushWinkWink -I tend to agree with you about 'tall' subjects.
....and yes, "Hmm...there's a sense of gravity!"...... my very words, as I went arse over tit.

Shildon. I'm starting to worry about Bill. You putting something in his cocoa, or what?


A cracking shot. The methodology has worked a treat to digitalise it.Smile



Great result, however painfully obtained.
Like the contrast of the veil of water LHS, & the mossy RHS, with streams of water disappearing into darkness....


Thanks Ivor. Yes I was pleasantly surprised at how well it worked.

Thanks Malcolm, much appreciated.

Beautiful Alan , really fine work , you used some teccie words that am no sure aboot but, does that matter ?? , course not what we have here is a beautiful piece of art GrinGrin Was it the bang on the heid that forced you into a light (phone??) box wi a trannie GrinGrin Gravity always wins though . Lovely job



Beautiful format and composition, perfect shutter speed and focus and I love the hint of leaves through the water. A beauty Alan.
What river is this? Wink

i was once in a phone box wi a tranny.........but that is another story. i love this photie. it would look better blown up and hangin on my wall thoughGrin


You used a tripod!! There's hope yet GrinGrin Lovely slimy greens as well.



light-box....tranny..... items from pre-history, when the only 'digital' was the kind of examination a doctor would give you with his finger.
Award gratefully accepted, Rod, with many thanks.

Kenny, just so long as you weren't in a phone box as a tranny.

Dave- tripod with medium-format film cameras, always preferable. But no longer use MF or film, don't do low light or long exposure photography, have IS on lens and clean ISO 800, therefore no tripod needed. Freedom! You know it makes sense.

Rende- what river... ? ........for pity's sake don't you start!!! Grin

Thanks guys.Smile


An exceptional good composition both elements working vertically alongside other extremely well. Whilst the deluge of water is softened somewhat by the 1/8th of a second exposure one can still admire its power and its transparency. The lush green hues on the moss laden overhanging rocks have been perfectly reproduced in post production. A great image...

Regards Nathan GrinGrinGrin


Thanks, Nathan, but like I said in my 'description' its a photograph of a photograph, so the exif data here is meaningless. SmileSmile
