Waterfall in the Clouds

More telephoto work. This is from a HUGE waterfall but zoomed in to 350mm. I really like the reverse vignette and caught my eye as something dreamy and unusual

270mm · f/16.0 · 1/2s · ISO 31

Nice work, Mike. I agree about the reverse vignette, and have been experimenting with the same, also on details from a large waterfall. I think this idea could be worked up, perhaps by compositing as well (which I generally dislike) into something like the east Asian scroll paintings with bits of landscape "floating" on a largely blank background.

I note what you say elsewhere about working waterfalls for their great potential. So often, people do "the" image of the whole thing and seem to leave it at that. I rarely find that the image of the whole fall is the best one as an image in its own right. Too easy to end up with a postcard image, or much the same as everyone else.

Keep up the good work!

thanks for taking the time to give such great feedback. Always nice to hear when an idea works out
