Now that we see more we want to see more.
Picture is great but what does that place really look like.

Thanks, Lonnie

My sentiments exactly Lonnie.

Rodney, at the risk of causing you embarrassment , this is a fine shot of a beautiful scene. I trust you didn't go back just to take the one shot, it would be real nice to see more of the waterfall and it's surrounding.

Yes, I went back to take this one shot for posting on the forum. I have no desire to shoot flowers, landscapes or wildlife and never have until this forum was created. I imagine my images will always convey such a message.

Hi,

Again I also think this is better. Very good.

I actually agreed with the previous issue in that the large brown matt was distracting. As I know you were looking for technical reasons as to why this was so, I didnt want to contribute to that discussion as I really didnt know. Sometimes there are no reasons why, and it is justpersonal opinion. Anyway I like this presentation much better andmakes me morefocused more on the subject. Saying that, I noticed on a previous post of yours, Cherry Blossom, you had a large brown matt bordering that shot. In that case for me it worked really well (your best flower/macro shot). I liked the contrast, it complimented the picture very well and didnt distract from the subject.

all the best.

Thank you for the comments. Last evening, a woman come to my studio to pick up her grandson's senior portraits and I had the previous image matted, framed and on display. She loved it and purchased it for $250. She was so impressed with the mat and frame of the waterfall image and the one print I had framed for her grandson that she asked if I'd mat and frame some other pictures for her. :-) Anyway, it does look a bit different when the light falls on the face of the image rather than backlighting as we have with our monitors.

What makes your opinion so unprofessional? You are a photographer and a consumer, so your opinion is very professional and quite valid.

BTW: I left the mat off this one because I wanted to post a much larger picture since the scene has lots of detail.
