This is one of the most spectacular nature wonders of the world - Niagara Falls in North America shared by US and Canada located in such a beautiful sight, only the Victoria Falls in Africa are larger. The Niagara Falls on the Niagara River, are actually three separate waterfalls; The American Falls, the smaller Bridal Veil Falls and the Horseshoe Falls on the Canadian side in the further distance of picture.
Shot taken from the Observation Tower, the best vantage point to enjoy the awe-inspiring view and to really feel the force of the enormous quantity of water rushing over the edge, dropping down, pushed by relentless forces of the flow and the terrific energy. The constant companion of the ever present mist rises from the base of the Falls where the Niagara River completes its 53 meters plunge and carries on along its natural path.
The Maid of the Mist is a boat providing daily tours that ventures close into the heart of the Falls, is seen stemming against the gushing river heading towards the Horseshoe Falls. The high rise buildings to the right of picture are in Ontario, Canada.

I remember it when I visited Niagara in 2003(it was mid April and still a lot of snow there).
Here we get really amazing view of the Falls with lovely greenery surrounding it.
You chose great POV to present us the whole beauty and vastness of this wonder of nature.
Despite beeing scaned the image has still very good quality and vibrant,well-saturated colors.

Excellent POV and composition.
Very impressive water.

You're capturing well this Niagara Falls by a good composition and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see waterfall with spray as blast falling from a rock fall. If I look well, I surprised lush to many around the waterfall. Where water drops will go flows.

Excellent shot of the famous Niagara Falls, amazing quality of the water parts, fantastic colors and diffused light directly on the water

a very spectacular picture with great depth and full of dynamism. I like very much the chromatic layout, the colours are substantial and enhance the fascination of the view. Apart from the captivating waterfalls, I've enjoyed wandering around and exploring details and checking the sense of scale. I particularly like the long stairways and the tiny people on them. The opposite view in the workshop is very lovely too. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great day,

Hello Abmdsudi, lovely view of this beautiful and famous waterfall, beautifully captured with a great pov in this very good and nice photo. Wonderful image of a charming place, with good sharpness, depth and quality. A nice, good job perfectly done, congratulations my friend. Thanks for sharing this interesting work.
Good morning and happy weekend.
Warm greetings from southern Spain.

As a composition this is great. The falls are as impressive as I could imagine. What actually strikes me first is the thought of the marvellous view that must be enjoyed from the top floors of those Canadian buildings. Then I see that although this is a good scan with well maintained sharpness and contrasts it is not quite up to the exceptional quality of your more recent digital photos. There is a red tone that I find quite typical of many scans (I have struggled with such tones many times). But it's still a photo way above average.

I can safely say this is a totally new view of the falls to me, I have seen many, but never with the inclusion of the towers in Canada. I makes a superb and odd contrast to see the glory of nature, while the attempts at glory of man peep in the background, seeming aware of the fact that they can never compete. Rich wonderful colors, and I love the fade from green to blue, like two worlds colliding. Beautiful!
All the best

Spectacular show of nature. I like the panoramic view of the waterfall and the colors. Good catch.
eldancer1 (26722) 2013-08-30 7:52
Wow! I can almost hear the roar of the water from those waterfalls! Awesome pov and sharp details. Good lighting control and wonderful colors. Very well done, tfs.
(Pardon my ignorance but I didn't know that tiny Singapore has an air force until I saw some of their F-15s participating in the Red Flag Exercise here in Las Vegas last year.)

spectacular view here. I had a pleasure to visit it from the other side but my photos are not great. I see it is a scan so you cannot achieve your usual perfect quality yet the view is amazing and worh having in the collection. Interesting contrast between the wild nature in the left and the city in the right.
Thanks for sharing,
adramad (36907) 2013-08-30 8:44
Wow ..... this great panoramic pride, that shows us a stunning POV, this beauty of nature, I like the diagonal plane of the falls from the rest of the image field.
Fascinating colorful which makes the picture much more delicious.
Very good the management of the brightness and sharpness.
Have a good evening.

Hello Abmdsudi ,
The is a splendid view of this famous place . At first glance , I thought that the water was overexposed , but I'm not sure , and in any case , that enhances the feeling of force of these huge falls . MAy be some curious tonalities in the colors , but I ca see that this is a scan .
EstudioChispa (1898) 2013-08-30 12:28
Aaaah.... Kodachrome! I like digital very, very much, but there was a quality to Kodachrome that was magical. Thanks for sharing!

nice the view as the presentation of this section of the Niagara falls,with the spectacular POV to makes the image so effective.
The WS and especially the view of the Terrapin Point is the eyes catching of image.

Wow, this is really a wonderful image for a scan. Excellent composition combining the power and beauty of the nature and the city in the distance. Good color with rich tone and contrast. I have not yet been here though I'm in the U.S. but the opposit coast of the country. One of these days I have to go see it.
