Yes, I like it. Excellent use of a long exposure… By the way I also like the "other" vortices shots you posted!

I do; but again, I'm not convinced that colour is required.

Oh No, not again, aaaargghhhh!!!!! rip, tug, scream.....

Sorry for that hair pulling out at the roots moment there Jeremy  ;), but I think the colour this time is definitely going to stay, because if for no other reason than I just prefer it this way and think the shot really does benefit from being in colour - although being the complete sucker that you know I am by now, I will probably have a quick look at it in B&W, but as I say, I really like it as it is.  ;D

Thanks everyone  ;)

Very nice.

You know what Eric, I totally agree with you, there is a sort of 'satisfying completeness' to this shot that I really like and is definitely what I was looking for when I took it.

You know I also do believe, that whenever you come across a scene that is worth photographing, that there is really only one perfect spot to take the shot from that satisfies something within us at that moment in time, but which can be different for each of us. And so the art (and craft) of photography, is to work out exactly where that spot is and then work out what lens and settings it requires and whether I can capture it to my own satisfaction. And the more that I do it, then the easier it is to find this perfect spot at any given location - and inversely, if I can't find the perfect spot to fulfil my own level of satisfaction, then I am probably not going to get any kind of worthwhile shot out of it, no matter how good the location or weather etc is.

Which means as a consequence I do a lot of wandering around before I even get the camera out of the bag and more often than not, I don't even get the camera out of the bag before wandering back to the car to drive on to the next location. Which amazes the missus, who can often be heard to say such things as "You mean we've driven for four hours to get here and your not even going to take one single shot of it?"

I thinks it's because I enjoy looking or hunting for a shot, just as much as I enjoy taking it if I can find it. So I can happily spend all day long looking for a shot and not taking anying, which again the missus cannot understand and thinks if I haven't filled at least half a dozen memory cards by lunchtime, then I can't be enjoying myself - Oh how wrong can she be? ;)

Fair enough. It's your shot, after all. If you still are of that opinion after looking at it in B&W, I won't mention it again.

I like it. And in colour, the yellow of the water coming in to the pool is interesting.

All the waterfalls up here are like this, as the water is filtered through the many peat bogs that surround all the rivers, so after rain, the water takes on the colour of strong tea (or weak coffee if you are a coffee drinker).

Glad you liked it  ;)

OK Jeremy, you asked and so I have tried a B&W conversion of it just for you  ;)

Hope you like it?

Thank you, Dave. I do like - prefer - the shot in B&W, although I'm not enormously enamoured of your conversion: you seem to have lost quite a lot of detail in the white water.

Well, the bw is quite surreal. More so than the color. With the color you begin realize what you are seeing. The color looks great and it would be my choice. Doesn't matter, it is all about what you saw and how you composed it.

Yes I agree Eric, sometimes you/we are better sticking with our original satisfaction over the outcome of an image, whether it be colour or black and white and yes I do love a good mono image as you know, but it has to tell me (don't ask me how) that it wants to be black and white, rather than me just pushing it into that colour space because I can.

Thanks again everyone  :) :) :)
