Northern Ozark sandstone terrain.

Constructive criticisms are always welcome.

well i think that the colours need to made a little brighter and the shadows to be made darker. also i think it needs to cropped a little because the bottom left, where the water is flowing looks a bit like it has scum on top of the water.

try in black and white also.

Feels to me like the exposure time is somewhere in purgatory somehow. I can't tell exactly, but it either is not long enough or too long. The composition seems to squeeze itself into classical places, but the tree and the falls appear to compete for the left side, while the right side gets drained and opens up too much. I also keep wanting to look above the falls into that opening, cutting me off as my eyes try to explore. The floor is just not rich enough to entertain. I'd play with the contrasts to lead the eyes back down, tilt the whole thing slightly to the right to balance it out a bit more, crop it to feature either the tree or the falls more prominently and reduce the attention to open spaces with careful reduction of contrast or detail there. The fall's opening is the most beautiful part of the image, so it should get all the focus. Hmmm...makes me wonder if you'd want to put up the raw into the Before and After Thread. Could be an interesting challenge!


Canon 500D, Sigma 18-250mm & no clue how to make the best of either, yet! :oops:

Nice shot! It a bit busy on the left, I would just crop the left, leaving out the big rock. For me, the tree and the waterfall make the shot. Nice job on the exposure time.

I find some merit here as well. I also am leaning towards that this shot is slightly out of horizon and ever so slightly slow. I like it, but if I could do it again....speed it up some and check your levelness.....it appears to flow left to me?
