Lumsdale waterfalls

Here are a few of the waterfall shots I got at an evening event organised by Ian G for his local photo group. A great evening with local guides and cake thrown in.

Liking #2. It looks like a Wraith from the Stargate Atlantis Sci-Fi series.

Re: Lumsdale waterfalls

I kept coming back to No2, so that gets my vote.
Cake could almost tempt me to join a photographic club - but not quite.

Re: Lumsdale waterfalls

Thanks Guys. Interesting observation on No2, it does look like there is something in the water
Lyn, Ian's club is pretty informal and just works very well for it. People go to events because they enjoyed the last one. There's a real mix of knowledge and skills too so lots of help on hand. And as you say cake helps too

Re: Lumsdale waterfalls

Thanks Tom. Now I'm curious but what is it about No2 that makes it most peoples favourite? I like it too but just wondered what was different?

Re: Lumsdale waterfalls

I'd say it's the composition of the image and as Mark said it has the most volume of water which of course is the main feature that the viewers eyes are drawn to immediately. Then the viewer pauses on the rhythm of the water cascading over the rock as the eyes slowly explore the rest of the image before locking focus on the flow of water once again. I'd be inclined to darken the edges all round and maybe finish off with a black border which would contrast well with the whiteness of water.

That's how I see it and it's the most interesting image in the set.

Tom

Phil IMO the others are too cluttered compared to No2.

If you shown the others on thier own or without No2 you may have got a different reaction.

No2 is class as it is simple and the shutter speed is just right.

Re: Lumsdale waterfalls

These are all excellent shots Phil but I am afraid that I'm in the minority in not liking long exposures for waterfalls.

David I know what you mean and I quite like the dramatic effect a fast speed can give sometimes.
