Winners 52-7-18-Landscape - Waterfall / water's fall
Posted By: ramseybuckeye, 05-15-2015, 06:03 PM

I'm disappointed in the quantity of entries, but certainly not disappointed in the quality.

Well Noel, yours ended up as not the only entry, but it is definitely the most creative, and it does this being very simple, I would say with only three elements, with the focus on the water, you've got what I perceive to be an old pump, and that beautiful bokeh for a background!

Norm, what a beautiful location, I like that this waterfall has not been "prettied up" for a tourist attraction. You really did a nice job of handling the sun vs shade, I think it worked to your advantage. Beautiful image!

David (scomatic), Another beautiful place with a beautifully colored pool.

Tamia, you always find these beautiful spots, I like the wide view and appreciate how close you had to get to see drops on the lens. This must have been shot pretty wide.

Some very good quality, but in the end I'm going with one winner:

Besides what I previously mentioned, I like the composition here, Norm had the vision to include the little place on the right where the water is running under the rocks, plus everything seems in focus so there is a lot of detail, all of this meaning on first view I looked at it the longest, it grabbed me first and kept my interest.

So, well done on the win Norm, and everybody else with an honorable mention!

yep, can't argue with that choice-congrats Norm. Great shot, good eye great comp. Thanks Tom for taking the time out to judge this one. A pity there were so few entries, though I see there was a late comer on the challenge thread.

Excellent job, Norm. I, too, am impressed with how you managed to handle the highlights and the shady areas of this attractive waterfall. I also like the portrayal of a natural view, with the fallen limbs that are so much a part of any wild water. Tom, thanks for judging and commenting -- a tough job no matter how many entries -- and for the compliment.

Thanks for the kind words Tamia and Noelcm. There wasn't a lot of entries, but hey, a win is a win..... I actually liked scomatic's quite a lot. It wouldn't have surprised me if he'd won. I think Tamia was bitten by the timing, mine was taken at the height of spring run-off, I think if Tamia had been where she was during her spring run of she would have had a much more dramatic picture. But the number of times I've missed out on themes like "fall colours" when my fall has been over for a month..., I guess it all comes out in the wash.

Oh, and special thanks to Tom for selecting my picture.
