Yup, the focus seems to be more on the plant than the waterfall.Originally posted by kamwai
under exposed....and the water will look nicer if u use longer shutter speed....
and the plant at the bottom..,...kinda distracting?
Haha, point noted. Yes, my impression of zen image are usually those that are B+W with soft lighting etc, but I wanted to try something a bit diff. In this case, I was actually hoping to make the waterfall take a silky effect with long exposure, but looks like the exposure just arnt enough.Originally posted by igpenguin
I'm not sure how to comment. The color cast is an interesting idea though I feel the picture's execution seem to be off. Then again I may be basing my view on past imageries I have seen, and pictures of "Zen" likeness "usually" exhibit this and that sort of quality.
Like for instance, I can think of balance, soft-lighting, and the colours tend towards warm or neutral. But that is just my limited perspective.
You have made a deliberate attempt at making the picture, and I'm sure you will be able to make better pictures in your own style persevering at it. Who are the photographers whose style you like?
And probably you weren't as mobile as you wanted to be at the location?
