this is an interesting illusion and has a lot of interest. imo with a tripod mounted hassey you should be able to open this up quite a bit and gain more deffinition in the the darker areas. there is a mystery here created by the dark areas that works well but may need just a bit more definition to pull the image off well. very interesting image however.

Interesting perspective and very bold to play with this much darkness. I think I'd like a touch more light and colour in the areas that have it, but that's just nit-picking. Well framed. Definitely worth getting the tripod wet ;D.

A "sensitivity" shot, and I'm not talking about the sensitivity of the film, but of the photographer and viewer. There is just enough light to create the desire of having more, the small water fall almost looks like silver powder. Sorry if I don't have better words in english to say what I feel with that photo.

YOu use light like a painter. It is very isolated here, and used only where it need be used. Lovely effect.

I am amazed of what you can do with the light. You seem to play with light like a painter play with his colours. As if you can decide where the light should fall or not. The dark colours around the water really highlight the rather small waterfall but still makes the photo look mysterious. This photo is really worth looking at.
