This is the view looking towards the very well lit Punchbowl Falls, in the Columbia River Gorge. To get a photo of the falls you had to stand in the creek and get your feet wet, but this time of day around noon, it was way to bright to get a good shot of Punchbowl falls.

I liked the rocky shoreline before you get to Eagle Creek, and the mossy trees provided a nice subject as well.

Hi Lori
Lovely capture of this scene. I particularly like the pebles in the foreground with very good contrast and details.
Please forgive me for doing it this way today, but I am terribly short of time and I still need to get a couple of critiques done.
Scoring out of 10 I'd give it the following ratings-
Composition: 8
Colours: 9
DOF: 9
BG: 9
Exposure: 8
Very well done and thanks for sharing.

Hi Lori, I do like your POV here, coming in from the stony shore. You're not lying down this time??? It all looks so wet and cold, but I can see the warmth from the sun getting to work. I like this very much, TFS

Hi Lori,

You keep giving me ideas for places to explore in the gorge. Thanks. I really like the rocky foreground. I played with your image a bit as much for my own practice as for you. See workshop.


Evelynn : )

Bonjour Lori,
very nice POV and compo. Looks like a scene of a pre-historic movie. Congratulations!

Hi Lori,
Excellent low POV. It gives the photo a very good perspective. The contrast of the dark stones and green b/g are beautiful. I do like the WS evelynn did on your photo, because that was the only minus point I had.
