H Everyone
I finally has a chance to do some proper landscape photos, with my tripod and everything! Here are two photos of the lovely Dolgoch Falls in Wales. I'm working on a 3rd photo. I've not done a true landscape photo in about 3 years! I'd appreciate your feedback.

Lovely shots Mike! I'm not saying this with any expertise but my eye tells me that I would like to see them both
a little more straight on, possibly due to that kink in the fall. There 's an obvious reason of course I can hear you say
as you don't want to drown. Itd 3d Ani W60 Smiles 005
That small fern in the bottom one is really nice and with that on the right side of the frame and a little more head on to the falls
still with those creepers on the bank it would be interesting to see. But hey, its easy to say when you don't see the actual terrain.
Cheers

I like the diagonal composition, adds depth. Both fine shots being honest.

Not a fan of milky water shots normally but these are rather good Mike. Perhaps a little faster shutter but that's just me. The exposure looks good and the colours are brilliant.

Thanks Isac! I did take some none long exposure shots to get the composition right but it did not do it for me.

Good to see you back in action Mike. Love both of these shots - rich colours, and the water exposure is well measured.
You also have the potential for a couple of crops of the lower falls of both and the upper falls of the second, which would make great images.
Do you have the option to put such photos on your office wall to gaze at when the managers are giving you their usual hassle?
