Wow! Truly an unique capture, Nobi!! Great work!! #243115

Martin Witt 4/30/2005 8:58:22 AM

Gorgeous light and exposure! Love the silky smooth water flowing from the rock. #1306476

Hi Nobi, I think this crop should have less of the forground of the rock. It is in such sharp detail my eye goes there and not to the lovely water splash. If there were less of it this wouldn't happen. Or blur it. And show a bit more of the top of the falls. Maybe I just like the further back version better! Great shot. #1306507

Kathleen Clemons 4/30/2005 9:15:26 AM

How beautiful, Nobi! #1306509

Nobu Nagase 4/30/2005 9:49:57 AM

It's so great to hear from you, Sanjay, Martin, Fax and Kathleen.

I appreciate your view on this, Fax... I tend to agree with you. This is a close-up shot of the previous one, a wider view, and I did not crop any part of this one. It was directly scanned from the positive film frame.
I may crop the lower part of the rock and post it next month. Thank you. #1306547

Carla Metzler 4/30/2005 10:20:09 AM
