    I like this Paul,Agree with Richard.Nice balance between movement and blur.

  • Thanks Rod, I was a bit hesitant to put these ones up as Im not too sure about the area at the top of the falls where the suns hitting, I think I am going to have to go back here on a cloudy day sometime.

    Excellent composition, love how you got the entire piece into one shot.. is this where you did the nude shoot?

  • Thanks Angela, I would love to do a nude shoot at this waterfall but Im not mean enough to make a model get in the water here, this waterfall is on the side of a mountain and is just melted snow, the waterfall I use is a natural hotwater waterfall, its about the temperature of a spa pool. Ive included links to a couple of photos of that waterfall here and Here
