[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Taken at the Falls of Clyde near New Lanark, wanted to try and show the power of the falls. Some dodging and burning, some local tone mapping using PSP used a fairly longish shutter speed to blur the water.
comments welcome
thanks for looking

Hi Kenny,
the 1/6 sec exposure worked well, I think the PoV could have been better if you had moved to the right as the small tree is a bit of a distraction. The tone mapping makes the water more dramatic but a bit unnatural, anyway I like the overall image


This is the kind of harsh pp work that gives me a headache.
A nice place indeed but your "work" ruined everything, in my opinion only.
The branch in the foreground adds nothing interesting.

Hi Kenny

Please understand this is my opinion as a keen amateur only. You said you wanted to capture the power of the falls, but, using a slow shutter speed has the effect of making the water more serene and gentle. Which is the opposite of what you intended. So a faster shutter speed might have been better. All the colours look a little muddy and there is lens flare at the top right.

Hi Kenny
You are certainly showing the power of nature in this image. It's not the easiest image on the eye, but it is certainly full of energy. I don;t know if I like it or not... wait a minute, yes, I like it - maybe not to hang on a wall, but certainly to add to a portfolio.
Good work & thanks for sharing
