Tranquility by aFeinPhoto-com Tranquility by aFeinPhoto-com
Normally when you walk up to a 300ft waterfall the idea is to capture the entire grandeur of the scene. However upon approaching the base of the falls the softness and subtly caught me. The way the veil of water was playing with the contrast. I knew the contrast would work then the next step would be to find an angle that worked best. This one seemed to balance the soft greens in the corner well w/ the color of the water. And yes, the blues are actually desaturated here. I wanted to keep the deep colors of the intense shadows.

Much thanks for the c/c!

Love what you did with the color contrast here. It makes the entire place seem peaceful and secluded. Makes me want to curl up beside the water and read/write/or draw. Amazing work.

Absolutely beautiful shot! I'm pretty much lost for words. The colour is fantastic, the composition amazing and the detail stunning. You think your photo through so well that I'm sure you can't help but create beautiful art.
Faved.

I totally agree--in my area of Tropical Australia--there is lots of BIG waterfalls & i've taken shots of the whole thing but have found portions to be much more interesting lately
