I think it came out well.

I'll be honest, I don't think anything is wrong with it, I just want to hear thoughts for the sake of it.

The sun just broke the clouds enough to reflect off the face of the rock and glowingly light the foreground tree and cliff.

2 days and no responses. Okay. I'll go. This looks like two shots in one. (1) The shot of an iconic subject in mist: the falls. (2) a shot of the lonesome pine. The first is like a gazillion other shots. The second is interesting, but the eye is drawn to #1.

It is truly one exposure. 5 seconds if I recall.

I think he was suggesting that you should have made it 2 separate shots with 2 different subjects, not that you were combining exposures to create a single shot.


Canon 7D, 5D, 35L, 50 f/1.4, 85 f/1.8, 135L, 200L, 10-22, 17-55, 70-300, 100-400L, 500D, 580EX(2).
Sigma 150 macro, 1.4X, 2X, Quantaray 2X, Kenko closeup tubes, Yongnuo YN685(3), Yongnuo YN-622C-TX. Lots of studio stuff.

First - it's hard to see the whole image, have to scroll which makes it hard to evaluate

Second - The tree and rock structure below it is so much brighter it draws the eye. This isn't bad but it takes away from the rest of the image. Not saying you could avoid it due to the clouds/light mix but I think the rest of the image needs to be balanced to eliminate it some.

My comment is the difference in contrast between the upper half and lower half of the picture. Does make for a less coherent photo, coherent in terms of having a unified look. If you could increase the contrast a little bit in the sunlit top half of the photo it might help a little bit.
