About the Image(s)

The image was taken in Hawaii, pre-covid. It was taken with a Nikon D5, 24-70mm lens at 70mm f20, 4 sec, 100 ISO and and 10D filter. The image was opened in lightroom, basic adjustments made, then converted to B/W.

The amount of detail in the highlights and the shadows reveal an amazing exposure that has no clipping. I doubt I would make any adjustments to a print of this image. I would probably lighten the rocks (not the water) along the top edge to reveal more detail for viewing on a monitor due to the nature of a projected image.

I am curious as to the original color image to see how it compares.   Posted: 11/06/2020 11:57:36

HI Paul: Another beautiful waterfall. I like the softness of the water and think you nailed it with the 4 second exp.   Posted: 11/09/2020 15:09:07

Nicely done Paul. I like your composition. My eye easily follows the stream from the top to the bottom of the image. Interestingly the fern on the rock on the left bottom attains much more prominence in the B&W version than in the color version. In the B&W version the flow of water leads me to that branch as a destination.   Posted: 11/12/2020 14:33:27

Water running over rocks......
Like many photographers I cannot resist such subjects.
And such images have won me many exhibition and competition successes but only good ones cut the mustard.
This one does indeed cut the mustard.
The 4 second exposure was perfect for this shot.   Posted: 11/14/2020 02:52:57

Paul - a well balanced image in which your choice of shutter speed has worked out well in retaining enough detail in the water and at the same time implying movement.

The fern like frond on the left is an important element in my view in adding interest. If the image were mine I would be thinking of cloning out the two leaves immediately above it.   Posted: 11/14/2020 03:43:13

Hi Paul
I love seeing long exposure images and as already said this is a beauty,so well composed from top to bottom great movement lots of interest in the in the rocks and fauna the colour image for me is as good in its own right. Well done love both of them.   Posted: 11/16/2020 14:30:52
