River Nemesis by Alex37 River Nemesis by Alex37
The waterfall, just up from 'Black Rock' has been a bit of a nemesis of mine. I've probably photographed it a dozen times and I have uploaded a similar shot before only to remove it because I wasn't happy. I think this is the best I have got so far, helped by the fact that the 17-40 I used doesn't have the flare issues of the kit lens which had previously spoil t the shot. I apologise Steve that the location is so familiar to me.

Beautiful composition mate.
How do you like the 17-40mm? I don't know weather to go with that or the Sigma 10-20..

I love the 17-40 and I have never regretted buying it. However, I had planned to move up to a 5D much sooner, and at the moment I often cant shoot as wide as I would like so I have to stitch

I plan on getting the 10-20 for my 40D, sadly I cant afford the 5D.
Would you recommend the 17-40 over the 10-20 wide angle for me?

focal lengths are a personal decision, certainly i think you would find that 17mm on a crop wasnt wide enough in lots of cases.

actually not far from my home, in Devon England. There arent too many streams like this about so it is very fortunate for me to live so close because it has basically been where I learnt landscape photography. Thanks again

Nice shot Alex. I find the light bit of rock on the fall to the right a little distracting, oterwise it's well composed and the exposure is bang on.

Well first let's start with the absolute beauty of it--your exposures, your tones of green, the softness of the water--the flow of the composition, the lines, the textures--you've got it all down :D

apology accepted...i have a field ready to up load
im veiwing this on a different laptop to my regular one and i know this is calibrated to bright,,,but the greens seem a little yellow.......
Reply
:iconalex37:
Alex37 Featured By Owner Jan 11, 2008  Hobbyist Photographer
yes, but they really are yellow, this is part of the problem with the shot and I am sure that it is not wrong. The moss here is exposed to a lot more light and it seems to make it yellow. just look how green he grass is at the top of the waterfall...

Looking forward to the field.
