[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Plitvice Lakes National Park (Croatian: Nacionalni park Plitvička jezera, pronounced [pltʋitsɛ], colloquial Plitvice) is the oldest national park in Southeast Europe and the largest national park in Croatia.[2] The national park was founded in 1949 and is situated in the mountainous karst area of central Croatia, at the border to Bosnia and Herzegovina. The important north-south road connection, which passes through the national park area, connects the Croatian inland with the Mediterranean coastal region.

The protected area extends over 296.85 square kilometres (73,350 acres). About 90 percent of this area are part of Lika-Senj County, while the remaining 10 percent are part of Karlovac County.[3] In 1979, Plitvice Lakes National Park was added to the UNESCO World Heritage register among the first natural sites worldwide.[4] Each year, more than 900,000 visitors are recorded.[5] Entrance is subject to charges. Strict regulations apply

Hallo Jurek.
Atrakcyjne miejsce bardzo dobrze fotografowane i prezentowane.Bardzo ladne kolory i naturalnie fantastyczne wodospady.Pozdrawiam.Siggi

Hi Jurek, Woaaw what a spectacular image with awesome impact, tremendous low point of view, are you in the water when shooting this pic?, your exposure is spot-on with lovely saturated colours, splendid use of your line of thirds, perhaps maybe a slower shutter speed (say 1/30th sec or slower) to blur the water more might strengthen the composition a little better here?, but as presented a terrific picture Jurek and very well done,
Best regards,
