    Was hoping to get out and do some shooting today, but the weather is a major letdown. So I thought I would do some browsing and see some other people's images and share one of my own.

    Thanks for looking.

    I like the falls, lighting and setting you have for the water.

    What time of day was this?
    What settings did you use?
    How far from the falls were you?

    I am always curious, how far did you have to travel from home to get there?

    Thanks P

    We took a trip to Hamilton exclusively to do some shooting of waterfalls, which is about a 45 minutes by car. There are over 100 waterfalls in the area. We only were able to tour about 3 that day with the higher quality light.

    This shot was taken just as the optimal lighting hours were approaching. About 1:30 in the afternoon. The nice thing about winter is golden hour coming sooner than in the summer months.

    I used an 18-200mm 3.5-5.8 lens (only because I don't have an ND filter to fit my higher quality lens yet). With the ISO turned down, I had to stop the lens down as far as I could at that focal length of 38mm to f/27, with a 3-stop ND filter I was able to go as slow as 1/4sec on the shutter for proper exposure.

    We were about half way up the gorge on a landing that was approximately 50 feet from the falls on the left bank.

    A small amount of post was done in Aperture 3 where I adjusted the Levels, added some Vibrancy and Sharpening.

    Thanks Again.

    Thanks for the info.

    I have been wondering about using some filters...I need to learn more about them.

    WOW! Amazing shot! I would crop it and have just the cascading falls and remove the rocks on the bottom right and top right. Again, awesome shot.
