Default waterfall with 420 with 50-200mmswd

Hi all, went to ohiopyle last night to take some evening shots, although I primarily used the 9-18mm with the epl1, took the 420 & 50-200, in case I came across any wildlife. Didn't see any photogenic wildlife, but did take a couple shots after sunset with the 420. This shot is about 700 yards from the waterfall, F5.6, 15sec., 182mm, iso 100. raw processed in viewer 2, selective adjustments in elements 7.

For a scale perspective the waterfall is 18ft. in height.

I like that a lot, Charles. My eye goes from that big rock and follows all the way up. Nice!

I like that, too. Pleasing composition. I agree with Gary, the big rock in the foreground draws immediate attention and then up to the waterfall.

Great work Charles.

Almost looks surreal.

Thanks Guys, glad you like it.

Zig, I kind of tend to push toward the surreal side, I try not to over do it & maintain reality.

Charles,
you definitely succeeded, as the image maintains a good balance between
both.

If this were mine, it would be prominently displayed on a wall.

Zig, Thanks again. I have found with water and other reflective surfaces in "very low light", a polarizer used To ADD reflection instead of remove it, can create a surreal almost painterly look right in camera. here is an example from the other night, same camera lens combo. The first one is straight out of camera jpg only resized for web. the second is the raw processed in viewer 2 then selective adjustments in elements 7. as you can see the basic painterly effect is there straight out of camera.

out of camera jpg.







processed raw file.
