...great catpure with the water motion and the mixture of cool and warm tones...well done Alton~ #1247167

Carey D. Cordell 4/12/2005 3:40:53 AM

Quite beautiful. Excellent compositon. Visually, I started in the center and slowly moved outward. The vignette effect works well as well as the arching trees. Technically well done. #1247366

Lovely, Alton! #1248900

Alton I. Vance 4/23/2005 10:16:46 PM

Thanks to all of you for your kind remarks. I have to admit that this was a picture I almost didn't take because it was so much work changing lenses on a precarious slope. And when I took it I didn't think it would be any better than the others I had already taken. It wan't until I put it on the computer screen that it really popped out. Thanks again! #1285481

Did your enance that if so wuts the name of the program #1958296

Alton I. Vance 10/16/2005 8:48:27 PM

Yes I enhanced this photo by adjusting the levels settings in Photoshop. I did some cloning to take out some unwanted bush limbs. This is the result. I have had a 20 x 30 inch blow up of this photo and it is really stunning in a beautiful frame on my living room wall.
Thanks for your interest. AIV #1959289

I don't use that word lightly! This image is so beautiful that I literally hold my breath so that I can prolong the experience. What a blessig! I want it on my livingroom wall!
It looks so private; I can hear the water & feel the wetness on my skin.
Good photoshop work, too!)Thank you for sharing, Alton!

Thanks again for your wonderful compliment Betsy. #2132626

James E. Coleman 3/23/2006 2:34:53 PM

I love the West and I love outdoors so I love your gallery shots. This one another so well done, the bush creating a frame, very nice. Rich colors but not over done, in my opinion.

Monica M. Wroblicky 11/7/2006 2:06:02 PM

This picture is highly surreal. I feel as if there should be an angel floating down just in front of the waterfall, well done! :) #3558192
