[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Kravice Waterfalls is spectacular. The water is so crystal clear - perfect for swimming. Granted it's a bit cold, but once you're in you don't feel it :). The waterfalls are amazing, and you can even go under them or swim under them. There is plenty of parking right above the falls for a small fee. There are two small cafes right on the waterfalls that sell drinks and ice cream, but outside food is allowed as well. This is a perfect day trip from Mostar.

Beautifull shot, Frans.
Colours are great and so is sharpness. I am in favour of HDR if it adds an extra to the picture and in this presentation it certainly does.

Hi Francis.

This is such a beautiful place, we have seen this a few times and it never ceases to amazing. So many falls in such a small area is what makes the shot, the people create a perfect 2nd view point, the lack of skyline works well. tfs

stv ;o))

I went to Yosemite hoping to see waterfalls but the river was dry so no waterfalls. Awesome capture of those waterfalls. Good pov and dof with nice details. Well done, tfs.

Hello Francis,
This is a great capture,beautiful nature and her lovely creation(human)with full of joy and happiness.Lovely composition,excellent clarity,colour and life.
TFS and my regards_Joy

Hello Francis, this looks an amazing place to visit, with so many falls and beautiful trees and plants.
Interesting to see people enjoying the water, and adding scale to the scene.
A good tight crop excluding what looks like a rather nondescript sky.
Tfs, regards Jean.

Hi Francis,
Seems like a scene from one of those Jurassic Park movies.HDR worked very well here bringing out the colours and details.Good perspective on a fantastic scene.

This is a lovely daily life scene captured in a Natural reserve, Francis!
Great light and exposure control with superb sharpness and clarity.
The POV and DOF are well done, and colors are natural.
Great shot!

Kind regards,

Bonjour Francis Xavier,

Beautiful water falls, nicely composed, you avoided putting too much sky in it which would have been too bright. The soft light reveal plenty of details. The human reference help to evaluate the height of the falls. Nice work and TFS.


This is nature on his best
very nice picture
