Alabama Waterfalls by Don MacKenzie

August 2019 - Alabama Waterfalls

About the Image(s)

Taken this past June in northern Alabama which has many waterfalls. I lost the "before" photo. Shot in RAW (1/5 sec., f20, ISO400 at 24mm.) and adjusted the exposure, contrast and black point. "After" photo was adjusted with sharpening and slight increase in saturation.

The waterfalls are beautiful. You have a great shutter speed that gives the water a soft motion while still maintaining some detail. The dark surrounding setting, with green leaves, add interest and highlight the water fall. Excellent job with high interest for me. This is really lovely and conveys a peaceful feeling.   Posted: 08/05/2019 19:47:03

Thanks Cindy. I have a lot of pics of Alabama waterfalls and thought this was the best because of the framing from the tree and the rocks on the other side. I,too, like some smoothness of flowing water.   Posted: 08/06/2019 10:03:57

Nice waterfall setting. I think you did a good job with the shutter speed to blur the water.   Posted: 08/07/2019 07:56:31

I would crop most the rock on the right, it adds little to the image. Also, that would take the subject out of the center of the picture.   Posted: 08/15/2019 19:55:49

nice waterfall image, may be a little bit darker on the edge, tree leaves on the left. Overall, a nice one.   Posted: 08/15/2019 22:12:04

It is a beautiful waterfall image. The slow speed produced a blurred motion image. I think that the rocks on the right were not very in focus and could be cropped out a half of them.   Posted: 08/20/2019 01:14:54
