Now this is a beautiful wallpaper AND a decent photo! Nice and sharp, beautiful rocks in the foreground, and I like the silky water.

Thanks a lot guys.

Lord_Illidan, I believe 1280x800 is now available, do you see it?

My god, the water looks smooth as silk. For me this is the best photograph I've seen here in a month. The green is so rich in saturation that I wish there was moss on some of the rocks near by in the foreground, that for me would make this photograph absolutely perfect.

I don't know what to say, SinaiB. This is beautiful. I was just telling somebody that I have 186 wallpapers. So after saying that, I decided to check IFL to see if that would change. Well guess what: the instant I saw this, I literally said, "whoa, make that 187 wallpapers!" Thank you for submitting this SinaiB, and thank you IFL for posting it!

i usually hate fuzziness of a running water, but in this case the dead on sharpness of the static objects more than makes up for it. had this photo had sunshine in it, it would look like a cheap postcard. the overcast gives it a more solid feel. it has excellent depth that chris Gin's photos are known for. overall good photo, and it has made it to the desktop, but i dont think it'll stay there for too long.

Burn Baby Burn 2.1 Beta: yeah, I know what you mean. When I first saw this, I first noticed how clear and sharp everything was which was one of the things that I immediately liked about it. But, I also like the way long-exposure makes moving/running water look. There's just something about it even though it's sometimes not intentional. Oh, and speaking of Chris Gin's work, I almost thought this was one of his before I saw that SinaiB submitted it. This piece reminds me of some others on here, but I'm having trouble finding them. However, the filenames are: 1665_streamssun_1680x1050.jpg, 1543_falls_1680x1050.jpg, and 1775_countrywaterfallcoudraysalbertfrance_1680x1050.jpg. But I was initially reminded of the first one.

The sharpness is unbelievable. Definitely a photog's pic here.

I saw other similar photos in here, but none of them was as clear as this..I love especially the reflection of light on the rocks and that particular effect of the water..the waterfall seems fake but probably it's just a lens effect..real good pic!

Really like this submission ... Quality all the way

Lerch84...The effect of the water is due to the 10seconds this shot was exposed for. Also he may have used a polariser, which removes reflections that are on water and metallic surfaces etc.

Hey, thanks for answering. Yes, it is now available, and thanks again for an excellent submission. I'm using it atm. It makes for a very relaxing desktop.

weirdest thing with this image.. it just grabs you & there's nothing you can do.. everything is so clear
about 5 years, 2 months ago
Thanks for the answer Genocide. Another question: If I have a Neutral Density 4x filter what can I do with it? Is it the polarizer?

SinaiB, let me add my kudos to those of the other members of the IFL family. This is a crisp as a new one dollar bill (or insert your country's currency here). The only thing this image lacks is audio accompaniment!

What an amazing picture. It's hard to look away from the beautiful vivid green. I don't think this will be leaving my desktop for quite a while...

Santiago, you can probably get the same effect with the water like in this shot with an ND filter (not sure which type, maybe 4 or 8) as it blocks out more light allowing you to get longer exposures and therefore that silky smooth water effect. A circular polariser is usually to increase contrast in the sky and remove reflections on certain surfaces, although it can let you get slightly longer exposures as it blocks out about 1 stop of light. I think it depends on which kind of filter you get really, as some brands are better than others and it pays to go for the best you can afford. Hope that helped :)

Just beautiful! I can almost smell the foliage. Great depth and clarity, there's a lot to get lost in here. My new favorite!

This is a wonderful shot! It's currently on my desktop at 2560x1600 and looks all the better for it. I usually don't like extremely long water exposures as I feel the water loses some of its natural beauty, but I quite like the waterfalls in this. The foreground rocks certainly draw you in put you in the midst of this scene though. Chris Gin is great and all, but there's no reason to compare your work to anyone's it's great in its own regard.

To the InterfaceLIFT admins: take a look at the response this wallpaper has received, as opposed to the two posted after it. This is obviously the kind of work that people come here for, and appreciate most.

Absolutely AMAZING. You are such a talented photographer, thank you so much for this upload. It will remain on my desktop for months to come.

TOO DARK...should have used powerful flash to fill in to shine on the dark rocks on the left to brighten them up.

Silky smooth and ultra-crisp. Thank you! Did you put the maple leaves there yourself? ;)
