Tracery

Despite recent rain, the water flow at Burrong Falls was disappointing the other day. But I like waterfalls for the various photographic opportunities they present, especially somewhat abstract, intimate landscapes.

The foam in this pond above the falls provided a delicate tracery of white. I'm usually drawn to colour, but in this case I thought the graphic effect might work in black and white, and am reasonably pleased with the result, as a dabbler in mono.

Feedback of any kind welcome.

Chris, I really like the concept of this picture. Love the falls themselves, and i think that black and white works really well. I don't think that you loose anything by not having color. For me I think that it would help the overall composition if you cropped up from the bottom. The way that pool sort of hangs of the bottom of the picture it leads my eye down with no way to get back to the rest of the picture. Just my opinion.

Thanks for the kind words and your reflections, John. Interesting. I have some images with the bottom cropped off that way, simply because of DOF problems as there were rocks and plants close to the camera. But I paticularly wanted the complete loop of the foam streaks. Just shows how aesthetic judgment is so personal and individual.
