[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
In Norway, in the Hemsedal region, you will find the Rjukandefoss (Foss=waterfall) close to the village Tuv. The waterfall is situated close to the main road. Only a short 10 minutes walk leads you to a very special waterfall. Already from the start of the foot path you can hear the roaring noise of falling water of this beautiful spot.
Because it was a very wet summer this year, the waterfall was filled with a lot of water, more than usual, I heard.
I was trying to give the water a more striping and blurring effect. So I used my ND 0.6 filter to obtain a slow shutter speed of 1/6 sec. and a f/stop of 25.
The 18-70mm was the best lens, together with my tripod, which is absolutely necessary for this kind of photography.
When you are in the neighbourhood don't miss this waterfall, you would not regret to visit it.
Hope you like the effect.

Hi Ruud,verry nice landscape,i like this composition

Hello Ruud! Excellent picture. Great effect.

Hi Ruud!

A wonderful picture with a melancholic atmosphere. You have very well managed the filé-effect that underlines the mood. I also like the composition, maybe I would have given a bit more space to the upper part of the picture, just above the rock.

Thank you for having shared it with us!

Kind regards

Magnifique, j'adore la brume de l'eau qui monte au dessus de la chute,

Hoi Ruud,
What een super mooie foto. Je sluitertijd heeft de kracht van het water perfect weten vast te leggen. Ook geeft het een erg rustig gevoel en de mogelijkheid om het landschap te bekijken. Het zou zeker mooi zijn geweest als je een groot hoek had, maar de detail opname maakt meer voor een abstracte natuur foto. De kleuren en scherpte vind ik echt prachtig.
