Devil's Cauldron by Alex37 Devil's Cauldron by Alex37
The Devil's cauldron, one of many highlights of Lydford Gorge. I have to give thanks to a very patient and friendly family who waited for me to take some photos when I was occupying the only viewing point.

I really appreciate this photo because waterfall photos, however beautiful they are, tend to become the same after a while. This one stands out because it shows direction and nonlinear movement, as if it is coming forward to embrace you.

Thankyou very much, the roar of the water is quite thunderous because it is so enclosed

Spectacular image! Great composition! As soon as I saw this one in your gallery I realized that it is the exact same location as one of my favorite photos from David Clapp's gallery at Photo.net. Check it out here if you want: [link]

nice composition with the rocks in the bg layering over each other and the shutter speed was just right for the water

ahh i have the same shot
is this HDR? :D
as said great shutter speed, looking into the darker areas though again they look over exposed, what do you think alex.........

I think that overexposed darker areas is a bit of a contradiction.....perhaps you mean underexposed :D so dont get clever with me!
Since I took it and processd it, I would have to say that the exposure is perfect! :P

you would say that, what i mean is the darker area seem a little grainy and could have more contrast.......dare i say

The darker areas were boosted with curves. In a rare failure of techinique I shot everything with JPEG :( unfortunately I forgot I had changed to jpeg for dads birthday and I dont usually check since I always shoot raw. I will have another look at the shadow areas.

rare faliure of technique..........priceless alex you make me smile........jpeg compression then maybe?

Alex37 Featured By Owner Aug 13, 2007  Hobbyist Photographer
No, what you see is a failure in processing, I boosted the shadows too far, though I am amazed you spotted it on this small version! If you come out to my exhibition at 5ish and the weather is OK maybe we could go on a shoot somewhere locally?

sure ill try.........where do you wanna go so im a little prepared..................can you give me a postcode of the exhibition?
Reply

Alex37 Featured By Owner Aug 14, 2007  Hobbyist Photographer
Exhibition is at PL19 9NN (or at least that is my postcode which is about 50m away). I was thinking if the weather is at least dry, coffin wood would be a good bet (15mins drive) or maybe just a walk up the colly brook which is very close and I am sure you would find plenty to photograph there. Either way you probably need some walking boots or trainers, it could be muddy. I dont know if you could make it Saturday at 4ish, that would probably be best. I dont think there will be a sunset looking at the forecast in any event.

you know it! though in all honesty reflections are minimal in a gorge like this since only directly overhead is bright.

again, loving it :) These images are so perfectly exposed, I almost suspect you of HDR. Though I'm sure thats not true ;)

yes the shutter speed did work particularly well with this, the water loks a little like ice. I think it was a 2 second exposure
Thanks
