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