HI All

Let the feedback commence :lol: OK I know some of the highlights are way too bright but I do like, much as it sounds a cliche, the range of light and shade.

Despite the obvious blown highlights I liked the composition and the setting sort of lulls you back to a calmer, more peaceful time.

Weird you should say that as that is exactly what the break there did do for me - it really did take me back to calmer, less rushed times - a great place to go to de-stress and get away from the hurly burly of modern life . Ehmm but don't go in July or August as it will be packed and won't have quite the same effect

I don't think you could have done any better with the exposure except to go back in the early morning or evening when there is softer and warmer light. A slower shutter speed (if pos) to soften the water. All the same a nice picture.

I've been and took a few pics there myself with 35mm many years ago.

Flippin eck Stef, can't you resize to 800x600 and compress the pics some more, I fell asleep and started snoring zzzzzzzz waiting for that to download on the old 56k.

You could also have placed yourself at the bottom of the waterfall and shot upstream - if you know what I mean.
But fine shot - the right things (IMO) allready said here.

What software do you have?

Get yourself a copy of Paint Shop Pro7, usually free demos on cover discs. Probably V8 by now.

When you save as a JPEG there should normally be a compression setting. I use 25 in PSP7 after resizing to 800x600.

Don't forget to save with a different name or you'll over-write your pic.

I don't know those Stef. Get something serious like PSP7+ or Photo Shop6+.

PSP7 is much cheaper (I think better) and easy to learn. PS6+ is the industry standard and the pros use it - but what a price.

You can buy PSP7 here for 39 - that's good value.
