    very lovely composition my friend. That silky looks just takes my breath away.

  • Hey, Vickie !
    Thank you very much, for both the comment and the fave. :)
    This was actually two exposures, combined in Photo Shop; one for the scene and a second for the water. With one exposure, I’d either blow the highlights or lose the shadows.
    Even with image stabilization, tripods still have a huge role to play. :)

    Beautiful step cascade in this waterfall, and the colors are wonderful!!

  • Thank you very much, icesrun !
    I wanted something a little different, with this one; something like an environmental portrait of the falls – not just the water but its surroundings as well. :)

    Stan your falls captures are breathtaking! How do you make the water look like that it is so beautiful!!!

  • Thanks a lot, Rose !
    I can’t tell you that I use a tripod, a small aperture, a low ISO and, sometimes, an ND filter.
    I can’t tell you I try to get my shutter speeds into the range of one quarter to three seconds (depending on how much water and how fast it’s moving).
    After that, it’s simply trial and error.
    The last secret I can’t tell you is, sometimes, like in this case, I take two exposures, on two layers, and mask out the water on the lighter layer so it retains some detail.
    If I told you all that, I wouldn’t have any secrets left.
    Soooo, I can’t tell you that.
