    Forest Waterfall

    Here's a shot I took recently on my first hike in years. My legs were pretty sore for a few days after that one! I wanted to try a few other angles for this location, but unlike a professional, I did not have any waders with me

    I think it's an interesting exercise to compare and contrast this with the one I posted yesterday, here. We've taken a very different approach to the water.

    As we know, there are people who have a preference for the slower shutter speed, just as there are those who prefer to go faster. I think each potential image has to be judged at the time by the person on location making the image.

    But given their broad similarity in terms of content, those still trying to get their heads round this issue of photographing flowing water, might find it helpful to compare the two.

    It's a nice composition. Consider toning down the leaves in the bottom left corner. They add such nice interest that they're a bit distracting from the subject.

    Mike, thanks for the comment/advice. When you say "toning down" the leaves, can you please elaborate? Would you say to drop the exposure a little on those leaves? Reduce the saturation? Something else? Thanks!

    Donald, indeed, the subject of my photo and the one you made in your post are quite similar! I'd agree with your good advice to anyone trying to learn about water exposure "treatment" to compare our two shots to see the differences.
