    Here's an interesting question. Do you think it looks good like this, or I should have exposed the mountain a bit more?

    This kind of gives the focus on the waterfall it self, where water is correctly exposed.


    Anyways, what do you think? What could have I done better? :hsd:

    Dont you think it would blow out the water/vapor/rapids if it was lighter?


    I kinda like the saturated look :hs:

    i think if oversaturated, bu ti like that you can see the water in detail, and the mountain is black, it makes you look at the waterfall and bring your attention there

    you could have always bracketed your exposures and combined the pics later to make an evenly exposed photo all across the board.

    I suck at photoshop :hs:


    Didnt think of bracketing.


    You guys think that saturation kills this photo? I though it would make it look a bit more focused :hs:

    Call me stupid... but I think there is an odd out-of-balanceness (new word) between the sky and the rest of the photo.

    The sky creates a ton of negative space, which is over-weighed by the water falls and the mountain.

    Try cropping it some-what similar to this:

    The pink areas are what I would crop out. Just something that I thought about.

    One thing that I do absolutely love is the mist rising from the falls. Perfect.
