This image was taken 8 hours later than the early morning one I posted yesterday.
Again, I'm quite upset about the ghastly viewing platform. I tried to crop it out (see the workshop) but that crop is far from ideal. If anyone has got suggestions how to create a better version (without cloning the thingy out), their advice would be much apreciated!
I used a 0.9 soft edged ND grad and an 81C filters. Not sure how relevant this piece of information is though as I had to boost the saturation up a lot for this image to look the same on TE as on other websites. I've mentioned the problem with reds looking muddy in my images uploaded on TE before. Fiddling with saturation settings has got an adverse effect on the quality of the image but nothing much I can do about it! :(

Very beautiful image, with lots of excellent subjects, the sky, the town, the falls, all tie into a really cool shot. I love that you even have the unique color in the sky, as well as the lights of the buildings.
Regarding the viewing platfrom, I honestly dont think it detracts from the shot at all, if anything to my eyes it looks quite fine where it is. I think perhaps it is under construction, as there appear to be materials placed around it, but again, not noticable, and certainly not when their is so much more to look at in the image.
Really nicely done,

Hello Kasia,the pretty evening sky adds an extra dimension to an already spectacular scene.
I really don`t think that you need to clone out any area of your image,this is after all a site that likes to show areas as they are,not how we might like them to be.
Nice work,regards Les.

To zdjęcie jest bardziej nastrojowe niż poprzednie (w mojej skromnej opinii). Nastrój daje światło i ta "jedwabista" woda, doskonale chwyciłaś półtony i półcienie

I think you better keep that viewing platform on the picture so you show the true state of the place like you mentioned at your previous post. Personally, I really enjoy the overall picture of the waterfalls including the view of the town and the fortress on the hill. If you wanna have this, you're saddled with that platform.
It may be interesting to use this platform to get closer to the crashing water but the most magical sight of the waterfall does show also the town, I think.
The pink colour in the sky, the orange lights and the yellow facades add beautiful warm tones to this excellent winter view of Jajce.
Your pictures of this place are marvellous contributions to get to know something more of Bosnia & Herzegovina.
Best regards, Paul

Love this photo with nicely captured shot from fine angle. The light sources are well defined from well metered exposure. Thanks for sharing and have a wonderful weekend.

I didn't know that this kind of waterfall exists in the real world. That kind one sees usually only in SciFi or fantasy movies. I like this one better than the last one, particulary due to the warm and golden light in the village and the nice sky.
As for the platform, it doesn't bother me to much. I think once the construction work is finished it will fit in nicely.
Pozdrawiam and have a good sunday

niby scena ta sama,ale jednak swiatlo sprawia,ze odbieramy ja zupelnie inaczej.Stworzylas tutaj naprawde piekny,unikalny nastroj nie przesadzajac z nasyceniem kolorow(wiele osob by sie nie moglo powstrzymac:).Do tego odwzorowanie szczegolow jest rewelacyjne.Pomagalas sobie tutaj HDR-em?
Natomiast porownujac to zdjecie z tym w WS ciezo mi sie zdecydowac i kazde z tych zdjec ma cos czego innemu brakuje,niestety:)albo irytujaca platforma i calosciowy widok na piekny wodospad,albo bez platformy i niestety bez czesci wodospadu.Ja wychodze z zalozenia,ze lepiej sie skupiac na tym co piekne(a tego jest zdecydowanie wiecej na tym zdjeciu) i nie przejmowac sie drobnostkami.
Pozdrawiam i zycze milej niedzieli

A very nice picture, a great atmosphere and the wonderful light, well done

A great standalone shot, but even better in conjunction with your previous shot, which allows us to experience the same fantastic view in such contrasting light.

Perhaps the problem is that your picture too
big to resize to a maxium of 300kB? Sometime
I have the feeling that pictures from a
compact camera are better on TE than pictures
taken with a DSLR.
Lately I use the free program "Easy Resize"
and I give it later an extra sharpness with
the free program "IrfanView 3.97". If you
want have some explanation, you can contact
me through my website:
About the picture: it's taken from a great point
of view and has a great composition and light
management. You wrote the rest of the quality,
no need to repeat.

I still haven't visted this country. It is time to begin seeing what has been posted in TE. I do not see any necessity for croping the photo. I think it is a streamlet flowin here. The waterfalls are so high and marvellous. Warm Regards. Domingos
