Bonjour Urs
On croirait entendre le bruit des chutes.
Tu est devenu le champion de l'eau qui coule doucement avec ton shutter speed.
Belle texture des rochers et la verdure est bien sature.

Une superbe photo de cette cascade, techniquement et esthétiquement très réussie, avec une composition impeccable et un bon choix de vitesse pour donner la sensation d'écoulement.

Bonjour Urs

j'aime beaucoup ta citation en note.
Un endroit féerique, grandiose je dirais.
J'entends le bruit de la cascade.... Absolument superbe !

Très beau rendu des couleurs et des textures.
Bravo !
Bonne journée

Hi Urs!

What lovely capture. Nice view of this beautiful place.
Good composition and POV.
Congratulations!

Regards,
Paulo.

Very nice use of the slow shutter effect here. Great control of the whites in the foaming water - it's easy (and common) for the brighter highlights to be over exposed, but you have managed this one perfectly.

I like the composition.

Rew

Awesome shot Urs, the slow shutter speed has blurred the water perfectly. Such a great looking waterfall, you've done it justice with your POV. Well done.

TFS,
Scott.

Very beautiful picture of the water fall. Excellent landscape image. Nice motion and depth.

'Morning Urs,
I like the silky water which resulted from slow shutter. Fantastic details and sharpness. I would like to try this one of these days. A beautiful posting.
Best regards.
Danilo

Hi Urs

hi Urs

My first visit to your gallery, thanks to your critique.

I like this waterfall shot and good choice of settings to get this flow effect. I can see you have good equipment too :)

Not often I get to see waterfall shots from Switzerland!

Very nice composition. Hope to see more of your D700 work.

Ciao Urs



Your waterfall is fantastic!
the water so white, looks like a veil for bride!
a place nice and refreshing.
Good textures and sharp fine details,
the point of view works well to show the subject!

Greetings,

Hi Urs, I find this waterfall flanked by the sharp rocks and greenery most appealing. Your well-considered angle is ideal, a kind of shrouded mystery is the result. As a bush-walker in NZ as a youngster and now in Australia this is a superb scene well presented. TFS. Murray.

Bonjour Urs
Superb como with top notch exposures and colours. Very hard to fit the whole water fall in the frame unless you stacked a couple of images together and then it would be hard to comp together. This is great though so well done.
Cheers

Bonjour Urs,

Et non!!!
Cette jolie cascade n'a pas encore été commentée par mes soins!!!
Tel un voile de mariée posé sur les rochers, cette jolie chute d'eau déferle sur toute la hauteur de la roche, la couvrant ainsi d'une certaine élégance!!!
Le nom quant à lui n'est pas vraiment celui que je lui aurait donné!!!
Amitiés
Odile

Beautiful shot Urs - well composed, good choice of exposure to capture the water so nicely..

Nice work..

comment je utiliser le dictionnaire en ligne, parce que je ne sais pas le français, j'espère que c'est un bon dictionnaire, et vous pouvez comprendre ce que j'écris. Il s'agit d'un personnel accueillant, très agréable photos des pères! longue exposition est une sensation de l'eau. Cette photo m'a appelé, je veux être le prochain à la chute

What can I say...........this waterfall breathes life through your capture and the photo melts away my heart. Photography at its best.

TFS!

Bonjour Urs,
Every aspect of this image is flawless as I can see. The speed and F stop are perfect to not only slow the waterfall and to keep it in focus, but the detail in the rock and trees are also sharp. The PoV you chose could not be better either, a real masterpiece.
Excellent work...
Steve

Moi qui adore l'eau bravo pour la netteté de la cascade.

Hi Urs,
Beautiful colors of the waterfall! The shot with good sharpness is great! Wonderful composition! Well done Ana!
