"Foss" means waterfall in Icelandic. Therefore, many waterfalls are named with "foss", such as the "gullfoss".
This Skogarfoss impressed me a lot since the rainbow was always there. It actually didn't move at all!( and I mean it!)Cos the next time I passed by, the rainbow was still there! Well, perhaps these are the real wonders of nature!
p.s. as I only have the Microsoft Photo Editor to edit my photos, it is always limited to make improvements. Will you please comment on it and suggest me a good photo editing programme? Thanks =D

what a beautiful shot of this waterfall, with this 'always there' rainbow.
Great POV and framing.
I use Ulead Photo Impact 10 for post processing, many features aned plugins capablities. As complete as Photoshop CS but some tools are simply differents.
Have a good week-end.

Joli cliché de cette chute d'eau avec des magnifiques couleurs façon arc en ciel. Celà me rappelle de bons souvenirs. Je suis venue en Islande voici quelques années.
Merci pour le partage et bon week-end.

This is one of your best shots! the composition is simple but effective. The small people act as a scale to show the size of the waterfall and colours are nice and pleasant. A very beautiful landscape that you've shared on TE. Good notes too. I've made you a WS using Photoshop CS, hope you like it.

Clare, this view has an excellent water movement with a beautiful rainbow at the left side. It looks very natural and the high contrast is great.

A beautiful composition where the rainbow is a bonus. The inclusion of people give us an idea of the scale of things. Very nice work and thanks for sharing.

This is by far one of your best pieces so far.
I like your description and the "always there" rainbow also.

Hi Clare -very nice view, the rainbow looks goregeous, maybe there is too much empty foreground. The image quality is a bit pixellated, a better photo editing software can fix that in the future.

Good POV, Clare, but I think I would have cropped a little more of the empty space at the bottom to make this a square format (but keeping your figures in the bottom left for scale. Good capture of the rainbow. Cheuk Hin's workshop is too contrasty in my view - something in between the oroginal and workshop would have been better. Cheers . . . David
PS: I use Photoshop Elements for all my PP. It is much cheaper than Photoshop CS, and does eveything that I need. Some of the Picasa photo editing tools work quite well if you are looking for something for free.

dommage que la qualité de la photo ne soit pas au rendez-vous car je trouve la compo et le POV excellent. Ces chutes d'eau sont impressionnantes et j'aime beaucoup la présence des personnages.

Hi Clare, this is a lovely shot, great POV and capture of the waterfall. I think you will get better results if you try some different editing software. I use Arcsoft Photostudio as it came free with a camera I have. I have downloaded GIMPShop but have not tried it yet. This is an open-source product that is apparently almost as powerful as Photoshop - but it is free!
