[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Hi All,
THis is another photo that I got on my recent trip to Scotland. This time it was on the eastern side of the highlands and of a lovely waterfall. I first saw this driving over a bridge on the A835, I think, and told my Dad to turn round so that we could go back and get a picture. It was quite cloud again on that day, but that let us get a nice longer exposure to create a milky effect on the water. I will also upload a black and white version to a workshop as I couldnt decide which one I prefer, so I will let you decide :). Hope you like it.

Hi Sion
Fantastic place and great shot!
This a wonderful waterfall.Exposure and timing are very well chose!

Hello Sion.
I like very much this kind of waterfals, ans this one is not a expection. I think that turning back to take the shot was a wonderful idea.
You have achieved a very natural capture, with a nice composition and effect on the water with your quarter of a second exposure time.
I think you get a wonderful postcard, with some more postprocessing to bring some contrast and detail to the capture. I dared a fast workshop, hope you wont mind.
Best regards, Felipe.

Hello Sion,
Excellent capture with very good details and superb colours.
Nice composition. Perfect focus and exposure time.

Hello Sion,
Beautiful place for a beautiful photo, great POV. Very nice natural colours an sharpness. I like the WS of Felipe with more contrast. Very good composition.

Hi Sion,
Great linear perspective leading one up the river from foreground to BG.Clever combination of speed and exposure resulting in a overall impressive image.

Good morning Sion,

Both of them wonderful, but i prefer the original one MF!
Amazing work as always, the tones of flow and the rocks' stratifications really stand out effectively. Your POV and vertical framing also superb.
TFS and have a nice day!
