[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Taken up on Ilkley Moor just after sunset - actually pointing away from the sun!

Scrambled down to get low to this hidden stream fall and used my (new!) cokin ND8 grey grad to keep the lovely colour in the sky.

Very long exposure required to keep the small aperture I wanted!

Hope you like it - thanks for looking.

Hello Doug
This is a lovely scene taken very well...I would say though that maybe you went to the extremes of an exposure time and aperture value..It all seems a bit light for a twilight scene..maybe a 10 sec at f12 or the like would have created more shadows and more of the twilight?...Im not sure..Hopefully one of the landscape phtographers will have a look and better critique this than me.
I like it all the same though.
best regards

Hi Doug,
Great shot mate, stunning colours, excellent POV and detail, my only comment would be to make full us of the 200 kilobytes
800 pixels for a larger image, all the best Cheers Rick :)

Nice light and colour, good movement, and composition is complimentary. Good image.

Hi Doug,
would like it bigger!! Aside from that, very nice indeed mate. Love the pinkish hue of both sky and water, the wetness on the rocks has been well captured too...you POV has been well chosen i reckon, you're obviously having with the new toy, good stuff!

Hi Doug,
I surely do like it a lot. Although a bit larger would be nice. Your low POV and composition are both wonderful. The use of the grad ND paid of, and gave you spot on exposure. I realy like the 30 sec speed and what it did with the water.
This really feels like it was take far away from any civilisation.

Hi Doug,

good composition wih beatiful colors.
Good long exposuretime, well done.

regards Gert
