Hello All
tuesday, with my daughter Valérie and her friend Daniel, i was for a day trip at the serva waterfall, near the town of Natzwiller almost 1h 30 from Reichshoffen with the car.

we are climbing along the waterfall between rocks, water and wild vegetation, it was a great adventure,,

what we can see on this shot is only a little part of this waterfall but surely the most beautiful and the most impressive part, the only negative side was the bad luminosity, the sky was cloudy and grey and the forest around this waterfall was very dark, so my shots have not a too great quality, this one is the best of all, but i would only showing you this wonderful place

perhaps Valerie will posting in the next days a better shot, she have more experience and more technical knowledge in photographie

thanks for showing, i hope you like it

Hi Jacqueline,

Great view of Serva Falls with wonderful clarity! The colors are perfectly shown and especially, I like the cascade type of this water though it falls from a reasonable height. Great use of the daylight brings superb results here.

Great work!

best regards,

Salut !
Ah, notre jolie cascade ! J'aime beaucoup cette photo, qui est très réussie malgré les condition difficiles. J'aime bien la cascade si blanche qui traverse la forêt si sombre, ça fait un joli contraste. Le léger flou et le halo blanc autour de la cascade donnent à ton image une atmosphère un peu mystérieuse que j'aime beaucoup. C'est vraiment agréable à regarder. Félicitations !

hello Jacqueline
beautiful scene with the waterfall,nice output
TFS thanks for sharing

Ciao Jacqueline, great view of beautiful waterfall, fantastic light, superb exposure and splendid natural colors, very well done, ciao Silvio

Hallow Jacqueline,
A great mystical picture with soft focus creating a tranquil scene.Well taken and TFS,

Hy Jacqueline
Even if the conditions were not perfect, but in my oppinion, the picture is soft, and I like it. I think that not always a perfect sharpness in recomended. For this, it works very well.
My kind regards, Oana

Hello Jacqueline,
une atmosphère fraîche et de relax.
Salut. Ferran

Hello Jacqueline,
this is a beautiful waterfall photo. Water is not easy to capture well, but you did it here! The soft flow is very nice and you can still see the path of the water. Beautifully done.
Best regards Siegfried

bonjour Jacqueline

jolie photo d'ambiance de cette chute,
avec un excellent POV et cadrage aproprié,



I feel envious of you, Jacqueline!
What a beautiful spot to go walking! The waterfall is just divine.
Your picture due to light conditions did not turn out sharp, but that does not matter. The ambient beauty still comes through strongly in it.
Best regards.

Hello Jacqueline,
Though a little soft due to the poor light, this is a well composed shot of this waterfall taken from a great POV with fine colours.
Thanks and have a good weekend,

Yes I did like it and am looking forward to view your daughter's work.
I find it most difficult to register water & its fall. It is tricky to get the "WHOLE" into a tiny frame.
However, you have done a lovely job here inspite of all your handicaps.
Congratulations & bravos are in order.
Mario with friendly greetings from COLD COLD Canada.

El rincón elegido es muy bueno, pero el desenfoque hace perder enteros a la toma.

Hello Jacqueline
very nice landscape shot of very beautiful scene in Serva Waterfall. light colors on water and green environs look very beautiful. you nicely composed it. Thanks for sharing, have a good night

Ciao Jaqueline. Good light natural colours and contrast. Little noised. Amazing atmosphere anyway.


Hello Jacqueline,
This is nature at its best. The pov is wonderful. The mood of cloudy day and thick forest is well seen. TFS this fine image.

Hello Jacqueline,
What a wonderful dreamlike image my dear. The colors and scene captured are excellent, thank you for sharing this beautiful image from what sounds like a splendid day in the out of doors.

Hello Jacqueline,

Excellent photo of this beautiful waterfall.
Light,focus and details are fantastic.
Good composition.

Hello Jacqueline,

A pretty waterfall with an air of fairytale to it!
I like the composition with the diagonal movement, and I notice the unspoiled nature in this place...
Well exposed and interesting play of light!

Pablo -

Hi Jacqueline, A good composition with the strong diagonal which makes it dramatic. The water looks very real.TFS. Murray.

Bonjour Jacqueline.

Magnifique photographie des chutes de la Serva, proche de Natzwiller. Belle composition et belle exposition. L'aspect général un peu flou de l'eau et de son environnement est un grand avantage, donnant une idée du mouvement tumultueux des eaux.

Merci pour ce partage, qui donne envie de venir visiter l'Alsace et les Vosges.

Bonne journée.


Hi Jacqueline
Beautifully composed shot with excellent color and POV...TFS

Bonjour Jacqueline,

La capture de la puissance de la chute d'eau est un atout à l composition. Les arbres et les roches cadrent bien la chute. La prise de vue peremt de voir les dérails et les couleurs de la chute d'eau. La lumière environnante donne un bon contraste aux couleurs. Bonne journée.


Hallo Jaqueline
Beautiful details shown of the force of the falling water. It must have been great to witness this scene, and I would have loved to see it myself. The patterns, texture and colour of the falling water reminds me of a bride’s veil. The mist at the bottom of the fall is lovely. Best regards and thanks for sharing.

Bonjour Jacqueline
Merci pour cette vue d'Alsace, en 'cascade'...
C'est une région fort belle que j'ai pu visité , à 3 périodes de l'année, Mai, Septembre, et décembre.
Je fûs ravi à chaque fois.
J'y retournerai surement pour ne pas oublier le gout des Bretzels, des Flammekueche, du munster, et des Baeckeoffes.

Very nice "dreamy" shot of this waterfall. I really like the colors and the composition.

Sadly, it has some blur from camera shake =(

Keep up the good work!
