Cohoes falls, as viewed from the eastern cliff. I ran over there late in the day when I noticed on the webcam the water level was extremely high--that's when it's really beautiful--and the clouds were great!

Very good composition and framing; HDR is a bit on the heavy side.

Not my favorite editing technique, but you use it to good end here. Texture on the falls is wonderful.

This is a well composed shot, I love the framing by with the branches and the interest in the sky. :)

I like it, but maybe tone down the tone mapping a smidge. :) 9

The colors and obstructed view are work for this, and this scene is just awesome.

Looks like the branches are scratching at the clouds. Beautiful 3D effect.

beautiful shot, the colors and natural framing work great
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/01/2007 01:34:26 AM
Wonderful. I like how you've included the foreground tree in the composition, while keeping it in focus and not overwhelming the image. That is a very, very difficult thing to do. Likewise, the tone range is superb, and the radiant lighting looks excellent--9

Reminds me of nshapiro's work. I really like your framing.
