The Land Of Milky And Honey by aFeinPhoto-com The Land Of Milky And Honey by aFeinPhoto-com
It's good to have friends. And friends with friends. I was shown this falls a couple of weeks ago and almost crapped myself. Honestly one of the prettiest falls I've ever seen. I need to revisit this...and I will...including nude shoots, but for the first go...yes. Has been rainy here so the flow is better and things are greener than when I first saw. Though still not as green as it will get. Massive flooding in Nov stripped a lot of the moss and flora.

We dont know the name of this place as it is on a friends friend's property so we just call it "wow falls"...because that is what you say when you see it.

Much thanks for the c/c and support!!

I think this is my first time writing a critique and I probably should've just skipped doing this one as there is nothing bad to say about it...so this is more praise than critique.

Composition is perfect. Shutter speed for the waterfall is excellent. Exposure for the water is near-perfect with only a few spots starting to lose their detail.

Sharp focus throughout, including the corners.

Post-processing is well-done. Your greens and white balance on the water are both spot on. The orton effect is nice and not overdone.

For a tropical waterfall, I'd say that this is about as perfect as it gets.
What do you think?

I added this to my favourites a while back and decided to look through them again. This is a beautiful shot and looks a little like my flowing beauty. Did you ever say where these falls were?

It does scream for a nude body in though. Maybe next time!
Rock on!

I'm normally not very much into waterfall shots as they tend to look all the same. But this one is very nice. I really love how the water falls in steps and the green/white is wonderful.

Yes, very pretty falls, indeed.


I really like the composition of this shot: the angled lines of the water levels lead my eye first in one direction then another and then back again, making sure I see the entire photo. The three levels also divide the shot with color transitions: not counting the white of the water, the top area is almost completely green with just a touch of brown in the tree trunk; the middle level has slightly more equal areas of brown and green; and the bottom level is almost completely brown with touches of green. The bottom falls are just lovely, spraying outward in that arc and I like the bits of red in the lowest level, adding touches of rich, saturated, complementary reds to all those greens.

Beautiful shot.

Two other things I forgot to mention: the levels all have nice triangular shapes which further define them and the color transition, from top to bottom, from cool green to warmer brown/reds means that the greens recede and the warmer colors advance, creating a wonderful sense of depth.

Basically, I think the composition is fabulous.
