Cheers, my mother is a Dutch hippy so I guess I got lucky with Layla haha

Mm Autumn is right. Although a lot of the trees here are sick already. The sycamores, horse chestnuts and beech trees especially. And nearly everything has wind burn. :\

yay for mum then! so you're half Dutch half Irish? I think it's going to be a pretty early autumn this year aye, just hoping a few leaves stick around on the trees til late October when I've a trip planned *crosses fingers*

I sure am, but I don't speak Dutch so eh, I'm kind of pointless haha

Oh great, where are you going? I hope there's some leaves left for you too. The sycamore behind my house is pretty much bare at this point.. Strange stuff.

hoping to get back to this general area but by the looks of it won't be feasible until November at the earliest, not too hopeful for many leaves remaining on the trees but a few on the rocks or swirling about in the water'll do nicely enough :) yeah they're going in waves the leaves aren't they, suddenly colour then wind then none.... few bare trees around here but still predominantly green, weird year so far!

Love the compo in this one and water looks creamy as, but not a fan of the post-work here... Looks very blue compared to the original I saw earlier, especially in the dark shadows... There's an almost purple tinge to it..

it does need a bit more warmth you're right :) I may have gotten a bit too absorbed in trying to get the water looking and natural that I overlooked the image being a bit on the cooler side... good shout man, cheers!

How about burning in some shadows in the water in the foreground? This is the focal point and yet it is so white.
Reply
:iconmeowgli:
Meowgli Featured By Owner May 26, 2011   Photographer
thanks a lot for the suggestion! I personally can't really get my head around that though, as it seems a bit counterintuitive to introduce shadows into an area which is essentially pure highlights... I will assume you mean pull the highlights back a touch though, which is a good shout! I did try this though and the water looked grey, lifeless, and less like water as a result :shrug: ... maybe what it needs is a good dodge/burn session I'm just not sure I'm fussed enough about the shot to bother! :D

Compo si good, I like the little fall on the foreground and the ondulated shape of the rock.

I understand what you mean by "it needs something extra" I have the same feeling. Maybe it needs something more in the upper part which is a bit massive, I mean the dark rocks. I think that if they had more light to bring their vegetation and shapes out they would look better. But I know it's always hard to get the best angle of light, maybe it's even not possible in that place. =)

thanks for the thoughts mate! yeah I think I might have too high expectations from the shots from this place, without making them too unrealistic I think I've actually processed them fairly well... maybe they need a bit more of an 'artistic edit' to make them work? the light was definitely a bit flat and dull by the time I got to shoot these falls, so I think it might be a case of "maybe next time"... I tried cropping the top of frame as well, and it kind of worked but was still a bit awkward... it's ok I guess but I can do better :)

Sometimes you can do what you want, if conditions are missing, you can't do better.
Well yeah, you can still try another editing if you want and see what it says, and if it still needs something, it will be a "maybe next time". ;)

That's not bad you already got several very good images of other waterfalls. :p

Meowgli Featured By Owner May 27, 2011   Photographer
this is very true, I guess when I take a trip to take photos I always want to make the most of the images I've captured... the light was nice and even on that day, but probably ultimately a bit dull... usually you can save these shots with b&w but I'm not sure if that would work here so well, might give it a crack at some point :) thanks man!
