Biography

Amateur photographer. I have been at it for about 10+ years. I love the digital world as it allows us amateurs the opportunity to get a good shot without going broke on film. I enjoy taking pictures of almost anything but landscapes I would say are my favorite. I would love your thoughts and any opinions that will help me to improve.

      It's interesting the difference in preferences between the 2 versions. Like Butch said, they are both nice, but I'm with your wife on this one. I like the composition and the rocks and plants on the right half I find interesting. Especially the evergreen tree that is growing out of the rock wall. I think that's what Tapas was saying as well. Anyway - just my personal preference. This is the one I will share. :-)

        Over all you are probably correct. I was going for a little simpler version on the crop The dead tree on the right is pretty in your face. I also darken the rocks on the left to make them I think a little less distracting. It was hard to take a different shot as I was up against a fence line and the cliff drops off there,

      They are both excellent. I like this because there are no distractions and in my case that gave the photo a bigger impact and kept me from looking away from the falls. Beautiful photo. Nicely done.

        That was my thoughts but my wife likes the other one and some folks said the other had more texture. I was trying to simply the scene. Thanks for sharing

          70-200 lens - no extender- just a massive crop :)

            1 month ago
            I wondered if cropped or you had an extender. (not multiplier - that's for macro right?) Getting my terms mixed up in my old age. :-) You did a super job with the 200 mm, I really love it because the moon has such a glow, it's not flat looking, and I love the stars in the image as well. My attempt was a colossal failure. Oh well, hopefully I learned from my mistakes.

              Thanks Mark- I had a lot of failures as I took over 250 shots last night in 3 hours or so--Just telling my wife that this was the first shot I processed and I think was my best shot-- I have processed another 10-15 and reviewed and discarded over 100 shots but I like the stars in this shot and the glow of the moon. Fortunately when we were on the side of the mountain we had very clear skies
