Hello James,

I really love this shot. Excellent. While I was on a holiday in the Southwest of Englang I tried many long exposure shots of streams and waterfalls, but never with such an excellent result as this one. Hard to believe you shot this with a compact camera. You did use tripod I assume, right? And what shutterspeed did you use? At ISO 100?


Hi James.
Very nice and really peaceful place. Very well taken. Bravo and TFS.

Nicely done! making all the algae look good! good shutter effect for water. nice clear sharp details. i do feel at peace.

Hi James,

a truly beautiful shot with bang on exposure control. Composition is great too, with the water leading the eye nicely down to where it converges in one spot between those two magnificent boulders, although i would'be maybe liked to have seen more of the boulder on the left? The rays of light falling across the water add a nice touch too.

well done and tfs!


Wow, this is brilliant! Superb clarity and colours in the surrounding greenery and the exposure of the waster is great. Nice milky effect without drowning out all the details. Fantastic.

Really quite nice. Peaceful spot. It's an invitation for a camera. I really like the show shutter efect on the water.

well done,


Hi James,
I looked at this photo several time throughout the day. Just because I wanted to see it again. It is a very beautiful image, with great work on the exposure. Colors sharpness and details are outstanding. Especially the stripes of sunlight are stunning.

Hi James!
What a wonderful photo! The colours and light is great with the soft water. I really like the sunrays in the waterfall. It is a very soothing image! I would really like to see more of the left rock in view though.

This is just stunning. I want this on my wall to stare at all day (even better on my desk at work). It looks like a scene from a fairy tale. Stunning light, lush greens and lovely soft water. Excellent composition.



Lovely capture and it is truly peaceful.
