Niagara Falls is a set of massive waterfalls located on the Niagara River, on the border between the United States and Canada.
This is Horseshoe (Canadian) falls. While not exceptionally high, Niagara Falls is very wide. And with more than 6 million cubic feet (168,000 m³) of water falling over the crest line every minute, it is the most powerful waterfall in North America, and possibly, the best-known in the world. It is 12.000 years old and has over 16.000.000 tourists a year.

Wonderfull rainbow. I like them and t's very difficult to get them correctly. I've posted some on TE but they are not as nice (they are not taken in same either).
I live the framing and the light management. Colours are great too.

Impressive shot, I think the people help to add to the story of the place.

Hello Alana, il n'y avait besoin de cet arc en ciel pour que la photo soit belle, mais avec lui en plus, cela devient du grand art.
Les couleurs sont vraiment superbes, j'aime les bleus profonds de la rivière.
Un POV original et un tout bon cadrage.

Love the POV and composition. TFS

Perfect POV ,better than from the others.Nice that you included the colorful crowd in your composition.The color of the water getting turquoise in the sun is fantastic and the rainbow is verry good visible.
dcawker (5717) 2006-08-19 14:05
Another great one, Alana.. I love your POV and the light on the falls is excellent too. Regards, Doug

Hi Alana, your astonishing images keep on surprising me everyday. This is just another one of your magnificent gallery. The rainbow, the converging waters to the "hole" and all the crowd in there...just perfect! And of course, the amazing colors and quality of the image. Keep on the excellent work!
craiggc (2509) 2006-08-19 14:25
Much more interesting perspective this with the crowd providing context.
Technically very good and very dynamoc

Nice weekend for you :)

Very nice picture, well composed and beautiful colors. I did not have a chance to comment on all your photos, but you have a very good eye for photography. I have found most of your photos to have and excellent POV.
padeg (423) 2006-08-19 16:37
It is because I have big admiration for your photos that I dare telling you that in this one you have been a little too far in saturating the colors to my taste. Especially on the people.
Yet it is an excellent image. You have a great eye for framing. You have a real talent for post processing the sky, you found a way to increase the contrast and keep all the details like the second ring of rainbow (barely visible but still there).
This photo show also the ambiance of the place and how much it is touristic.
Je te souhaite un bon week-end,
ancevski (3358) 2006-08-19 20:41
Alana, this is EXCELLENT. I don't know what to say. The composition is great with the people on the left side watching at the waterfall and the nice color of the river, it is nice even without the rainbow, but with it is one of my favourites.
mvdisco (17758) 2006-08-19 23:22

cheers to you
s_a_s_h_a (607) 2006-08-20 10:43
I admire your shots. This one with wonderfull rainbow is no exception.
cunejo200 (7281) 2006-08-20 17:03
Even without the rainbow, this will be a superb photo. But with the rainbow - FANTASTIC. Wise of you to include the tourists as they add an important visual element. Good clarity and colors. Best wishes.
Angshu (55401) 2006-08-21 3:40
That's a super shot Alana...composition wise excellent, superb colours of the water from deep blue in the FG to turquoise in the falls & the rainbow so brilliantly placed. Your work truly is spectacular
prezntime (3946) 2006-08-21 6:49
Very well captured rainbow with such bright colors. Well done POV with just enough people to show how crowded it is, yet leaving an idea of how vast the scene is. The curve of the rainbow adds a nice contrast to the straight horizon.
:) out today, be back.
dlavoie72 (1239) 2006-08-23 8:02
Wow! Very nice capture with your wide angle! I definitely have to buy one me too! You did very well with the full rainbow!

Beautiful photo--the light, the colours, the composition. I simply love this mixture of lights and shadows, and the deep-blue/green water. Very nice photo.
