I really enjoy longer exposure water photos that blend the water into one stream of white. This reminded me of walking through the valleys in Wales near where I live. Nice and peaceful.
Originality: There are a lot waterfall photo's and each one is subtly different - This one struck me as I wasn't sure of the scale, it could be a little rock fall or a large waterfall - The perspective has given it an ambiguous nature that I like.
Technique: Very good I thought, the longer exposure has worked really well on the water fall and hasn't detracted any detail from the pool at the bottom either. The surrounding I felt were a little dark in places and maybe needed a bit more contrast - But in a natural looking shot it is great.
Impact: As I said before I really like long exposure water shots and this one struck me as very peaceful and a place you'd go to think about things and clear your head. All in all, a nice photo.
Thanks. I had a poster of that waterfall on my bedroom wall growing up on the east coast. I have a "real" camera now, and I wonder what kind of shot I could get now, but that place is about 4 hours drive, so I never go there...
I think it eventually rotted. This was probably 30 years ago, at least. Yes, there was a local artist back then named James Parten, who used to pait lots of local Oregon spots: Lost Lake, Punchbowl, Oneonta Gorge, and Mt. Hood, of course. He was very good, but I don't think he's still around.
Thanks I honestly have no idea haha. I just got a new camera, the Canon 60D, the day before. And, or course, I used a tripod. It probably helped that I was a little bit away from the falls so maybe that helped get the smoothness at those settings?
