Hi Saeed!

I like the warm colours although there probably wasn't much light when you took the picture. The valley with the river is lovely and appears in a nice romantic atmosphere. I'm not really a fan of blurred watercourses, but I have to say that you managed it very well. Moreover, the overall expression of the picture is very pleasant, also due to the perfect composition.

Kind regards


Hallo Saeed
What a delightful and most welcome sight and scenery you are sharing with us. The colours of the various aspects of nature all in this one image and the light captured are just great. It has such a calming effect only looking at it on the screen. I think the feeling experiencing it in the real must be awesome. You are very fortunate to have these sceneries to photograph and just adore for its beauty. This is a stunning image. A warm and refreshing sight on this slightly cold and rainy day in South Africa. Thanks for sharing.
Kind regards

Hi, dear Saeed.
I am very glad to watch your next terrific shot. It is fantastic. I am amazed with 3D-effect, clear fine colours, transparency of the image and crisp sharpness of details. Long exposure time has created wonderful esthetic effect too. Superb job. Bravo and my compliments.

Hello Saeed,
A great forest stream shot. The low POV is superb and the high aperture allow great DOF without making the waterfall look too steamy. A superb composition too. Must be an exciting place to visit for the insect and birdlife too.
Thanks for sharing this beauty, my friend.
Best wishes, Ivan

Hi Saeed

I just love the richness of this shot which was enhanced by the time exposure and the wide range of the aperture. This resulted in exceptional sharpness throughout the image. The well saturated colours really bring out the character of the scenery. The algae on the well weathered rocks and the intense greens of the surrounding environment come out to give the shot a pleasant reception of the visual senses.

The composition is great with the strategic positioning of the rocks in the foreground that provides depth and perception. The rule of 1/3’s was also well applied with the water runoff area in front forming the lower 1/3 zone on the horizontal, the waterfall and the big rock forms the centre zone, and the vegetative area in the BG form the top 1/3 zone.

Well done and TFS.

Hi Saeed,
Long time..nice to see you
As green and as serene as it could get...the water fall is amazing in motion...the moss covered boulder providing the right anchorage to this wonderful composition. The BG with the beautiful green is superb.Great PoV, colours and lighting in fantastic scape shot.Very well done.
TFS & Cheers

Amazing work

It reminds me the poam of Sohrab that you had attached on it in Foto.ir


Hola Saeed, excelente paisaje, excelente exposición, tonos de color agradables y naturales. Una fotografia muy bonita. Un saludo

Hello Saeed,
I'm very surprised by this shot.
In my ignorance,I always imagine Iran as a place of desert and very few trees,yet this shows a lush geen forest,very much like our own here in New Zealand.
This is my favourite kind of place to be,and a beautiful capture of it.
Thanks for sharing it.
