About the Image(s)

The photo was taken on a partly cloudy day with a Nikon D750 fitted with a 28-300mm lens, hand-held. Exposure value: 1/6; focal length: 32mm; aperture: f/22; ISO 50; exposure program: Manual. Post processing in Lightroom.
I did not bring a tripod with me as I did not expect to. find a waterfall at that place. So I had to shoot hand-held.

Gaetan, is this in Mauritius? You live in and travel to so many fascinating places -- please tell us where this is?
You handled this photo very well to get the flowing water, bright and not over exposed. The rocks have great texture and detail, not underexposed -- especially for a hand-held shot. Jim

Beautifully done. I wish to could have taken it from a vantage point which would have allowed you to exclude so much of the lower left corner.   Posted: 05/09/2022 18:22:12

I LOVE waterfalls, here in Michigan the best waterfalls are about an 8+ hours drive away! I love the photo and agree that if you could have gotten in a slightly better local and gotten some of the lower left removed it might be even better! I have not done a lot with long exposure but hope to   Posted: 05/10/2022 07:25:05

As I mentioned, I did not expect to find a waterfall at that place. So, I was ill-prepared to have long-exposure shots. I just managed what what I had- a Nikon d750 fitted with a 28-300mm lens.No tripod, boots and so on.   Posted: 05/10/2022 08:44:12
