9.32 a.m. - I am still at Jiuzhaigou. Legend has it that a goddess was frightened by a devil and dropped her precious mirror causing it to break into many pieces. These fragments later turned into the 118 lustrous lakes there. However, the scientific account relates that millions of years ago, a clash of two geological structures on the Qinghai-Tibet plateau took place, forming the travertine banks, terraced lakes, waterfalls and cascades. Which ever version you believe, you are sure to be enchanted by its glory and beauty.
This is the Nuorilang falls, a mythical beauty. I know it will be best to slow down the shutter a bit more, but this is where I met with the limitation of my camera. Now I wished for an SLR. The smallest aperture is f8 and anything slower is an overexposure as the day was bright. I did however, reduced the EV to -0.66. Maybe someone out there can give me a hint or tricks as to how to manage this better.

A lovely landscape with a nice view of the waterfalls. The surrounding nature with different tones of green is very fine as well. I like the included people too. Good work!

Interesting point of view, since you choose to do this image from a distance!
I think it is working all right, with inclusion of other visitors and also some of the setting...
Image is well composed and with good details, I notice the lush vegetation!
