PP Challenge #243 - Waterfall

Thank you dlneubec for hosting Challenge #242 and for bestowing the honor of hosting #243 upon me. I hope everyone finds this image of a beautiful waterfall in Colorado worthy of your efforts. As I anticipate working long hours 12/10 thru 12/12, I am going to close this challenge a day shorter than the traditional week, and close it on Saturday 12/09.

Camera: K3 Lens: DA* 16-50mm

I look forward to what everyone can do with this image. Let the fun begin!

Tom tried not to let it show, but deep down he was more than a little miffed when his family refused to pose with him for their annual Christmas card photo.

Very nice photo to work with! Here are my series, all with the same crop to try an lead the eye through the shot. One in color, one black and white and one an impasto painting take.

Here's my effort to do a slight tweak and a crop. Trying to get the colours to jump a bit but stay true to reality.

Square crop, au natural PP in On1.


Decided a second version would be worth working on, went for a cooler more muted look in 4:5 as opposed to 1:1.

I thought a more panoramic view was better.

Well, it is time to wrap up Challenge #243. I want to thank each of you who contributed. There were many different approaches taken with this image, which is what I enjoy about these challenges, but it is also what makes selecting the next host such a challenge, as there is no "right" way to process an image each is simply different with its own merits.

JHwfp - I am glad to see Tom could stop by for a visit. From his shirt, I gather this is not his first visit.

dlneubec - You presented three versions. The choice of an almost panoramic vertical image really accentuates the height of the fall.

jcomley - You choice a crop which brings the focus to the stream with the fall as the background.

MarkJerling - You choice to emphasize the color and bring out the greens.

todd - You brought one of the B&W versions to the table, which helps hide the blown out sky.

Tas - You contributed two entries, one colorful and the other less saturated. You selected a crop to keep the waterfall, but remove the blown out sky.

astonm - You went with a panoramic tilt-shift look, shifting the focus to the trees.

tuggie76 - You elected to use a warmer panoramic view.

Arizona Dave - You entered a B&W and a color version. Like with the other B&W entries, the choice hides the blown out sky. You choice to replace the sky in your color version.

This is never easy for me, but I must:

Third Place is awarded to: astonm

Second Place goes to: Tas for your natural version

And the host for the next challenge will be: Arizona Dave for your B&W version. You surprised me as I had not thought I would like a B&W version, but you really made it work. Congratulations!
