Sometimes you get a great shot right out of the box. ;o) BTW, the lighting doesn't look harsh at all. Very nice shot.
Cheers,

In reply to:

cmantx: Great landscape shot Mick. I love the soft lighting. Just the right amount of blur in the water fall. Congratulations.

I appreciate the kind words, Carmen. Thanks. I could have stopped it down and blurred the water a little bit more, but the flow of this waterfall is pretty fast, so I guess 1/5 second was enough.
Have a good day!
Mick

In reply to:

ysal: Gorgeous image, has such a dreamy feel to it. ND filter, or was is dark enough?

Hello Yuki,
Thank you for the wonderful comments. I didn't use any filters on this one. With the fog, it was dark enough not to need it.
Take care,
Mick

Very nice macro of an unusual jumper. Never seen one with that pattern of colors before.

RuthC: This was one of my favourite entries in the challenge, Mick, as it gives me real pleasure to view it. The colours are beautifully soft and enticing, while the whole picture has a mystical aura about it. The rainy, foggy weather here was to your advantage. The photo is one to be proud of! Ruth :-)

Thank you so much for your thoughtful words of encouragement, Ruth! They are always very much appreciated. About the photo... my wife, 2 daughters and I have gotten up before sunrise for 4 weeks in a row and made a trek to the mountains to hike, see the fall foliage and visit several waterfalls. We have created many wonderful memories and I hope this photo (among many others) will be a visual reminder of these times. I've had a 30"x20" of this one printed and now need to make a frame and figure out where to get a mat board the proper size and put it all together. ;o)
Have a great day, Ruth and thanks again for taking the time to host these challenges and share your gracious comments.
Cheers,
Mick
