Iguazu Falls by Khalid Siddeeq

June 2021 - Iguazu Falls

About the Image(s)

This photo was taken in July 2015, in Brazil. It is a part of the Iguazu River on the border of Argentina and Brazil. Together, they make up the largest waterfall in the world. The falls divide the river into the upper and lower Iguazu, in total with more than 350 waterfalls, staying in a very unique national park gives an access for 24/7 to see different angles and views of the waterfalls.

I shot this photo using Canon 6D, 14-40 Lens, with a focal length of 23mm, and F/4 aperture, for 30 sec exposure time using big stopper filter. The shooting was in manual mode, with tripod, edited using Adobe Lightroom Classic.

What a spectacular sight! I've never been to these falls, but they look incredible! Compositionally, the line of the waterfall on the left leads you into the picture! Well done!
Areas for Improvement. You elected to go with a 30sec exposure with probably something like a 10 stop GD filter. It give a very dreamy effect to the scene. I would encourage you to shoot an epic scene like this with a variety of shutter speeds. My favorite for waterfalls is 1/4 or 1/5 sec. You might also try putting a slight vignette on it. You can do this in LRC.   Posted: 06/08/2021 10:05:23

I shot Iguazu Falls many years ago when my wife and I went to South America to visit our daughter in the Peace Corps. It certainly is a very majestic subject and you have made an excellent capture of this subject. I like the dreamy rendition that the long shutter speed has given you. Typically as David has mentioned I use a somewaht shorter shutter speed to retain some detail in the water, but in this case the longer shutter speed creates the dreamy mood for the photo.   Posted: 06/10/2021 09:13:58

I've never seen these falls before but this a nice shot. My taste would have preserved more details with a shorter shutter speed. With the current image i might try the dehaze slider to take back some of the misty foreground. But these are for my taste. Your shot is a nice capture (I suspect you have at least several) presenting a dreamy feel. I can imagine this a a large inspirational poster with some words of wisdom superimposed in some of the white space. Well done.   Posted: 06/22/2021 17:43:18

Awesome shot of the image... almost surreal ... almost representative of a painting. It most have been wonderful to be on location with so many options for shaping an image.   Posted: 06/22/2021 18:07:55
