The autumn colours had already been blown from the trees so I had to find something else to make it more than just another waterfall shot.
The only thing that was dragged to have everything in position here Ian was my fat backside which had to find a resting place amongst some not very comfortable tree roots in order to take the shots needed. It does counterbalance the distant boulder quite nicely though so my discomfort was a small price to pay to have what I wanted in view.The foreground water is the main element here and I think it does make up for the lack of autumn colour aloft.
Another fabulous image Sam...
Thanks Lex, I'm beginning to think I am right on the limit re editing here and possibly just a tad over that limit.
Very attractive autumnal colours. I like the way that patch of brown water & river-bed on the left nicely complements the brown leaves on the right. Serendipity? And I love the silvery look of the water in general but especially the 'min-rapids' in the foreground. Oh, nearly forgot. Y* of course.
Best wishes, Brian.
Hi Brian I'm sure by now you have come to realise that I leave little to chance and make all efforts I can to create a well structured and hopefully accomplished image. That strong X in the composition linking all the 4 red corner
sections with that bold dark Z taking the visual journey from bottom left to top right via the main feature placed perfectly in the golden sector
is all very deliberate but also comes from an instinctive feeling I get when everything falls in to place as I look around which Neil Grimwood will testify to seeing happen on location since it amuses him very much to see me getting in the strangest nooks and crannies to get exactly what I want. I have to admit that this was an easy one to spot so my yellow star wasn't hard earned on this occasion but is still as valued , Cheers :o)
Yes, it is a beauty and I am always interested also in the comments and your notes and helpful explanations. You have managed to create a piece of art that looks as if everything is in the right place totally naturally. Of course, it is, but the lengths you go to ensure that this is so are quite amazing really. Of course you start off well by having the ability to see the picture first in yur mind's eye.
Fantastically beautiful shot. ysl
Best wishes, Andy
Thanks again, Sam. Very interesting. I expect by now you have got to the stage where you recognise a good scene without giving it much thought. So even if something did appear in your photo 'by luck/chance' it was probably the result of your sub-conscious and well-honed instincts. But, anyway, I didn't mean to suggest your photo is good by 'luck' or 'chance' in my first comment above. Serendipity means, of course, "the accident of finding something good and useful while not specifically searching for it". I love serendipity! Am hoping to get good at it!
And I'm hoping serendipity has me coming across a large format camera and a bag of lenses when all I was looking for was a good pov for my next shot :o)
Andy...Point Of View :o)
