Hidden Falls  - Dogwood Canyon by Debbie Bates

January 2022 - Hidden Falls - Dogwood Canyon

About the Image(s)

This was taken last fall. Dogwood canyon is loaded with all kinds of falls. This one was a little hidden in the shadows. I did a little post processing to help bring out the falls from the shadows.
It was taken with Nikon D7000. F 5.6, ISO 100

A fine image Debbie. One thing I have learnt is that I prefer to photograph waterfalls or even cascades on overcast days. Solid cloud cover makes the light much more even, no contrast problems between highlights and shadows. I may be completely wrong and please Debbie, tell me if I am, but the highlights on the left and the shadows on the right lead me to think contrast was your enemy here at this time. The right hand edge suggests a possible vignette, but the left hand edge suggests no. Image construction is strong and you have done well to show the entire falls.   Posted: 01/17/2022 03:13:59

Love the image and wish the location was near me. I can almost hear the water cascading down and splashing at the bottom.

My personal preference on waterfalls is always to go for long exposures - and I get the stereotypical blurry water image that everyone else does. I like the water exposure - but feel like the highlights are almost too high giving off an almost HDR type of result.   Posted: 01/19/2022 20:57:05
