Critique #12 Empress Falls by Alan Daniel
- Pentax K1
- 28mm Zeiss
- 1.3 sec
- 100 ISO
A quick re-work
I tried cropping off the top above the waterfall and I think it is better balanced but we lose the foggy bit.
Alan I think the bit you couldn't put your finger on was the low contrast caused by the fog. Also that fog is mainly sitting up above the waterfall, not over the entire image. The way I tackled this in editing was to add some contrast to the foliage either side of the waterfall, I added some also to the lower cascades, this gave the image a bit of a lift but kept the foggy feel.
Thanks and feel free to share or comment
