Hi Steve,
another impressive shot from these beautiful woods. Love the colours everywhere and the composition showing the tunnel of trees stretching way back over the river. Good use of the long exposure too - lovely stuff!

I think this is a great scene nicely bordered. I've taken similar photos on the creek behind my house on Vancouver Island.
One comment: the water fall is overexposed noticeably. When I take similar pics, I spend much time with exposure values and shutter openings to get the it "right".

c'est le genre de paysage que j'aime,avec cet effet d'eau et les belles couleurs de l'automne c'est super.

Hello Steve,
This valley and waterfall look exactly like a place near us! Beautiful capture with good depth of focus and lovely autumn colours taken from a nice angle.
TFS and regards, Ulla

Nice place, nice color, beautiful water

Beyond all else which is right, this is one cool picture. I really can feel and smell as I walk along that autumn colored path. It is though you come close to touching the bounds of virtual reality with reality. So sharp...even unto the infinite horizon.

Hi Steve and Ioana,
Stunning scene captured at this waterfall!
Excellent POV and composition to lead us into the valley.
The golden BG is gorgeous. Beautiful light.
Wise use of exposure.
Well done

Hi Steve

Another fantastic autumn shot from you and the lovely forests from Transylvania :)
You used the long shutter speed greatly for flowing water here, too! The effect though is much more beautiful when you have such a nice waterfall :)
Also the small and very old-looking damb covered with gren moss looks amazing and adds a lot to the composition here.
The colors of the leaves everywhere (from teh lower left corner in the FG all the way to the BG) are simply awesome!
Splendid composition, too with the strem leading the way towards that bright hilside in the BG.
Wonderful work, overall!

Bravo and TFS

Hi Steve and Ioana!

It's a very romantic picture! The kind of pictures young people hang up on their walls... and old people like me like to watch on the computer screen. Anyway, it invites to dream and pleases by its colors and the well done filé of the waterfalls.

Kind regards

Hey, fantastic photo. Good colors and composition!

I like the composition in this version even better than yesterday's... which was nice too. I like the way the foreground colors are picked up again in the far distance. I live that "V" of yellow and trees back there. I wonder if you needed a full 5 seconds for this shot. I've never experimented with a slow shutter speed on flowing water. Perhaps a little bit faster would have avoided some of the OE at the bottom of the falls. The effect on the falls itself is lovely.
