I know that this boat,"The Maid of the Mist" caught my eye as it ferried its blue, water-proofed clad passengers, for a closer look at the falls.Taken from the Canadian side of the falls.

Nice! Been there, done that! LOVED it...worried sick about my camera getting wet and my then "boyfriend" had a RING in his pocket for me and was worried sick about losing it.. haha! Then got a proposal on the observation tower! What a guy! oh, back to the photo! LOVE the processing here, nice details in the water! what program did you use? This is a nice view of the horseshoe falls!

Not only eye catcher but I will be holding my breath until that boat comes out of the mist and still floating. But I don't think that's a ride I want to take. Great capture with good pov and dof with nice details. Well done, tfs.

Hi Ronald.

Another superb addition to theme friday and another unique capture, love the scene, the centeral haze draws the eye through the middle of the shot. The sky to the right is so active. well taken and presented Ronald, have a good weekend tfs

stv ;o))

Hi Ron, its certainly an eye catcher - with the boat in the dramatic situation - I know its more sight seeing but still - I go for more safer attractions !

A very good presentation and contribution to the Friday Theme.
Kind regards Monika - have a nice weekend

Hi Ronald,
This is a very fun trip on "MAID OF THE MIST". A very good contribution to the theme... it appears she is heading straight for the falls. Well seen and composed. Have a nice weekend, Julie

Hi Ronald,
A great action shot with that blue boat entering such fierce waters falling of the Niagara Falls. A lovely composition adorned with perfect PP work. An great eye catcher!
Perfect timing and excellent exposure management.
A great entry to the theme.
My regards.

Dear Ron,

This is a marvelous shot of Niagara Falls with amazing details and contrasts!
Colors are natural and POV is excellent.
The clouds add drama into the scene and the boat in the middle of the river is indeed "eyecatching".
Well caught mood and energy into the picture!

A superb entry to Friday's theme.

Have a nice weekend!

Kind regards,

  • Great

I love the fall withthe boat closing in Ronald, brings back mwemories...Ronald.
Good control on light and exposure with amazing sharpness and details. The colors are natural and DOF is excellent.

Well caught water , sky and clouds shot! TFS

Hi Ron

The lonely blue boat makes a good focal point. A magnificent spectacle. Love the high pov and superb sharpness. Tried a workshop adding density & then some more contrast in the hazy bg. Hope you like it. Have a nice weekend!

The falls are always eye catching and this is a fine perspective. I especially like all the white water against the green. The boat is also perfectly placed to catch our attention. A good contribution to the theme.

Hi Ronald!
Impressive scene! Certainly it is a great eye catcher. Very well captured. Good exposure and beautiful natural colors.
Ciao! Vanda

Good morning Ron,

Exciting Niagara Falls, gives the feeling of reliving the scene of the boat splashed by water and dressed in blue Smurf on Mac: lol:
Beautiful colors between sky and water,
Congratulations on this well groomed. TFS
