Yosemite Falls

July 4th, 2010

I believe this is lower Yosemite falls, but don't hold me too that.

Canon Powershot A570 IS.

Um, nice composition, but as said, this is borderline out of focus, it was certainly not on a tripod.

It's foggy, but I like it.

Very spectacular :) It feels a bit "holiday snap", but it's worthy of a place on here.

Excellent composition and mood. But this picture highlights the argument over using a point-and-shoot that is light and easy to carry but takes inferior quality pictures as against using a better, less convenient, camera that can deliver a respectable image. In the end, the viewer may not care about the photographer's convenience and see only the picture's defects. This one could certainly have benefitted from some post-processing in Adobe Lightroom. Lightroom 3 could reduce or eliminate the chromatic aberration around the trees and the obvious noise throughout the photo. At some point some first class effort is required to create a first class image. I look at this picture and think about what might have been.

In response to the poo poo-ing here...yes, the photo has its flaws...but it's a spectacular image.

Not everyone is a professional photographer and wants to invest in higher end equipment or knows HOW to operate said equipment. So with that said, first class doesn't really matter if you aren't a pro with the necessary resources. It's downright foolish to require such efforts of someone on a freebie wallpaper website.

WhiteDog, many of my submissions are amateur...in fact none of them are probably comparable to what gets posted here. However, I do submit, because I have photos I like and others may as well. I notice you have submitted nothing...and yet you veil insults against this photo as a teaching lesson.

It doesn't matter what might have been. This is what is, and has been voted to the front page. Lightroom doesn't make a good photo...something that captures people does.

I think some of you need to get off your high horses. If you're such pros, perhaps consider a different venue.

Well said indeed. I like this image very much. It's powerful and brings the viewer into the scene. I can feel the mist. :)

Dang, I'm glad I have no clue what WhiteDog is going on about upthread. This photo oozes atmosphere, "chromatic aberrations" notwithstanding (sounds like a Phillip Glass song). The composition is fantastic for the desktop.

Certainly not implying you're wrong in technical terms, but I couldn't care less what camera was used here -- this photo is downright cool. Don't let gear muddy the fun stuff.

Yes yes yes! Finally, The Loupe brings results!

This is one of my very favorites. The mist makes this shot very unique.

Geez...I think the negative posters at the top of the thread have their noses so far in the clouds that they're likely to get sliced off by a low-flying Boeing... Maybe these "experts" could explain exactly how to focus mist and falling water? And maybe they could also answer this: If every shot must be absolutely, totally focused, why does Photoshop have a variety of "blur" tools?

I totally agree with those who love this shot as the art that it is...

Perhaps if you don't know what people are talking about, then passing comment on those comments isn't the best idea.

But i don't want to sound like a plank, i mean no harm. As for my comment, i'd say it looks hand held, look at the top left and right portions of the image, it's blurred, just a distraction personally.

But as i said, i like the picture, it's just spoiled for me by those little things.

PS you don't focus on mist and falling water, in this kind of shot, you'd use a smaller aperture and perhaps even focus on infinity.

Blur tools are usually used for hiding imperfections ;)

I always respect someone who will brave stepping beyond the ropes and fences and walk the rocks to the base of Lower Yosemite falls, getting themselves drenched in the process to get this shotÂ…. especially this year with the falls running at full force after a stellar rain year! I did this three times now, and it's never a comfortable hike. You caught it in grand fashion, and the softness doesn't bother me at all.

Nice shot! Is that an animal standing in the middle of the pic on the right side of waterfall?

Beautiful shot, just looks a little too grainy on my monitor to have a lasting place in my desktop photograph cycle.
