    On the outskirts of Palm Springs (in the desert), this slimey green streak was all that was left of Tahquitz Falls at this time of year (end of November)...

    Niagar Falls

    Well I haven't seen too much of Niagara Falls in this thread and all I have seen has been in the daytime. So I thought I would add some night time shots of the falls. This was my first time to the falls, and my first time shooting a waterfall of any sort. Hope you enjoy!

    thanks for posting Rick, I've never seen that as an adult in the flesh so to be able to see it vicariously on the net is great

    This is the Popo Agie falls in Sinks Canyon State Park near Lander, Wyoming.
    I used a polarizer fader to darken the scene a little, but having the waterfall in the shade makes the most difference toward being able to use a slow shutter speed. I really underexposed these waterfall shots because I used the blinking highlights feature. Many of my shots were about 2 stops underexposed (including this one) and I brought them up in PP. I think I'll try using the histogram instead. I haven't decided whether to clone out the bright red trees on the left. They're caused by the setting sun just hitting the branches.

    If you're interested, you can see another view here, and other falls on the same river here.

    I think I like the other view better. In this one you have some blur in the bushes and trees. Was it windy? When you underexpose a picture like that then push it back up in PS you hurt image quality. I understand why you did it, but I think a little blow out is fine as long as you still have some detail. Like in the "other view" you have more blow out, but you still got the movement of the water and I think the overall image looks much better. That scene is very nice though as are the compositions. I'm putting Wyoming on my list of places to see.

    Thanks for your comments, Lukas. You really should come on up here!
    There actually isn't any motion blur, the shot is pretty sharp at 100%. I did some sharpening in PP but it doesn't seem to show up well once I upload the file here. Where do you notice the loss of image quality? Maybe I could do something to help that area.

    Here's a couple of 100% crops, you can see the loss of detail due to the processing, visible at this size.

    Well the IQ/underexposure thing was just generally speaking. Mostly increased noise. As for blur, the bright green leaves in the center of the image seem to run together. I think that's what the 2nd 100% crop was of though. I'm not sure what it is. The water looks good, but the rest of the image doesn't jump out like the other one does.

    This other one is great though. I was going to say you should have yelled at that guy to get behind that tree, but then I saw that you said it was your husband. If that's the case, then you definitely should have told him to get behind a tree! Just kidding.

    lol, it was a long way to yell! He was there waving at me to take his picture for a while before I saw him, I have lots of pics of him waving I think I do have some shots of it before he came up there, but I liked having him in for scale. I'll check it out and see if I have any before he got there.
