Mist Walker
« on: June 12, 2019, 12:26:45 am »

Nothing like a little wading with a ton of expensive gear that isn't waterproof... I was a little sad this year to discover that a firework created a fire in the gorge that decimated most of the waterfalls. It will be many years of recovery. Perhaps a lifetime for Oneonta, it was completely full of deadfalls and burned out trees.

Outstanding lighting.

One of the best waterfall photo I've ever seen.

Usually, I'm not a fan of ultra-long exposure but this one works perfectly for me.
Well done!

Great shot. I love the little dribbles coming off the moss too. It all adds up to a very pleasing image!

Well done. Has a nice balanced realism to it. Stays on the good side of the dreamy soft focus look that more often than not extends all the way into phoney CGI phantasy and beyond.

Very nice. The two "showers" on the left nicely complement the main waterfall.

Truth known it's 4 shots. Focus stacked for foreground rock and left side sharpness. One shot at 8/10ths for the mist that was painted in as well as stilling the moving leaves. Then Another at about 3-4 seconds for the waterfall smoothness (I played for a while with a less smooth look but ended up settling on the smoother) and then a final shot at around 15" for the foreground smooth water and shadow detail, still kind of dark but that feels real to me - high dynamic range is a delicate balance.

Spectacular photograph, maddog! One of your best. I particularly like the low p.o.v. with the backlighting.
