You Light Up My Life

Marcie A. Fowler 8/31/2004 5:32:02 AM

Absolutely breathtaking. I'd say your drive was worth it!! Same reaction today as when I saw this yesterday, at least I think it's the same image. I love the way the light comes down the falls with the water. I'm guessing we're going to see this one again!! At least we'd better!!! Simply magnificent. And just in case you are left wondering I really LOVE this image!! #164010

Marcie A. Fowler 8/31/2004 5:33:04 AM

Sorry got so carried away I forgot to say that the title is abosolutely perfect as well!! #746956

La Donna Cholette 8/31/2004 5:46:44 AM

Beautiful! I love the lush green of the moss and you did a great job on the flow of the water. One of the best waterfall shots I've seen in some time. #746992

Michael Khoury 8/31/2004 6:11:45 AM

Hi Darren...I am speechless..but I will say this...if the word 'magical' can truly be defined, this image would bring me that much closer to that definition... #747072

Darren K. Fisher 8/31/2004 6:13:44 AM

Wow, I love the light and your composition is perfect on this one Darren. What's not to love about this image. Beautiful!!!

Gianna Stadelmyer 8/31/2004 1:27:15 PM

Simply stunning, Darren! I need to log on to your gallery more often. This is true beauty. You mentioned a sunny blue sky....was this a well-shaded spot or did you employ a NDL or polarizer? Just trying to learn as I love attempting this kind of shot now and then and always seem to get better results with a polarizing filter:-) #747873

Mary K. Robison 8/31/2004 1:45:19 PM

Just when I think you can't improve on your waterfall images...down glides this mystical light alongside the water, adding a golden glow to the rocks below...
Put it on the cover of that calendar, Darren. #747883

Michelle R. Kovach 8/31/2004 5:03:06 PM

Beautiful Image Darren!
Absolutely breathtaking!
Great job!
Have a great day!

Outstanding work

Janet Detota 8/31/2004 7:31:00 PM

I vote that you make sunshine and blue skies a regular part of your waterfall shots! The lighting on the water and moss is wonderful, but there's still just enough shadow left for drama. Beautiful colors and great comp, too! #748258

Paula Showen 8/31/2004 7:40:10 PM

Oh my gosh, Darren...this is just GORGEOUS! I LOVE these images of yours. They have become your signature! #748278

Well done! #750096

April Bryant 9/1/2004 5:03:59 PM

On the norm I would not shoot a waterfall with a beautiful blue sky and sunshine, but after a 5 hour drive I had no choice and was pleased with the result. This was taken in Wv along Shays Run. The waterfall is called Elakala Falls#2. Shot with Velvia 50 at 40 and the settings of f/8 and 1
