...hidden waterfall 2...

Uploaded: April 30, 2005


Close-up shot of the "Hidden Waterfall" I posted the other day:
Tech details are the same: Velvia ISO 50,...
This image is also scanned from a positive film frame as it is captured.
The previous image is a wider angle view while this is zoomed in to the lower part of the waterfall.

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

Martin Witt April 30, 2005

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

Fax Sinclair level-deluxe April 30, 2005

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 April 30, 2005

How beautiful, Nobi! #1306509

Nobu Nagase April 30, 2005

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
