This is the two sisters of the Iguazu Falls on the Argentinian side, on this wonderfully hot day the sky was amazingly blue & I burnt the top of my head.

You certainly get about.
This is just a little fuller and more expansive than the River Teme!
I love how you have captured the dynamic flow of the water as it hurtles over the cliff top. (I do have a preference for water captured on a fast shutter speed where it is surging and splashing, rather than on a slow, shutter speed where it resembles silk.)
You have good leads and excellent f/g interest.
The colour of the sky is, as you say, amazingly blue, but is that a slight halo that I detect around the trees? I have found that happening sometimes when I sharpen a second time.
My warm regards,

nice the view as the presentation of the two sisters as falling from this altitude and creating this spectacular view.
Excellent presentation as the light and colour management.

The colors of this picture are very nice, with a beautiful contrast.
The composition is good too, the twins waterfalls are at the right place.

Twin waterfalls in a good composition
PaulVDV (31183) 2012-07-26 12:32
Very handsome sisters. They must be twins!
Excellently composed and I really like the colour combination: blue, green and red together with the white falls of course.
Splendid nature picture.
Best regards, Paul

great composition and fantastic light. You can hear and feel the water fall and stream in this remarkable brown river.

Hello Wilson. The two powerful waterfalls are impressive. The river water is brown. Interestingly, people are left in the picture above, because they show the true proportions. Overall, well seen and presented. Best regards wolfgang.

Hi Wilson, It is my dream to see the Iguazu Falls. I hope to see Vic Falls in two months.
Wonderful view of the twin waterfalls. Gorgeous blue sky and amazing colours of water.
WArm regards from Warsaw

You've also burnt the sky! (Evidence the slight halo round the trees.) But does it matter too much? The scene is highly dramatic in any case, and the rich greens and browns make the picture sing. Use a polariser if you want to beef up skies! I know you can take criticism...

A very impressive photograph of these equally impressive falls. We can really appreciate the size, scale and power of these huge waterfalls here carrying the discoloured water through this forested region.
Good composition with the foreground water, rocks and bushes which add depth to the image, good colours and excellent detail.
I agree with Will and Bev that there is a faint "halo" of white where the trees at the top meet the deep blue sky and I think that is probably less to do with sharpening and more to do with darkening of an overly bright sky. However, as I say, the "halo" is very faint and really hardly noticeable.
A very fine picture!

A very beautiful waterfall and a very fine capture. Did you know that there is a waterfall in Norway called the Seven Sisters? The Two Sisters are equally impressive!
delpeoples (59434) 2012-07-28 20:28
Hi dear Wilson
Oooh 2 for the price of 1! What an amazing sight, something we probably get to see once in a lifetime. The colours, the light and the vertical frame are superb. I can even feel the humidity, it looks so hot. Sorry to hear you got sunburnt, gotta look after that peaches n cream British complexion!
Cheers and all the best for the weekend

Hi dear Wilson, how are you?
Another wonderful view! High shutter speed setting makes very vivid and dynamic shot indeed. Perfect framework and light control as usual. I like the proportion of the each compnent very much. Wonderful atmosphere! Thanks for your sharing with the finest shot and have a good Sunday! Best regards,

These picture is very nice with the both waterfalls in background.
Perhaps a little bit to sharp made, but this is small detail.
Nice panorama view about the river.
Fantastic perspective and depth.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice Sunday,

Bonjour, cher Wilson,
Deux soeurs bien agréables à contempler !!!
J'imagine le grondement provoqué par ces chutes en mouvement.
La beauté d'ensemble est remarquable.

the colors of this picture are very nice
and the whole scenery is very impressive

a real spectacular view for all
who love shots of this kind

A great mixture of colours in this one. What a great natural spectacle - lucky you, to have travelled to such a place. The muddy water really makes a great colour combination with the deep blue of the sky. And those falls, captured at 1/1000 of a sec, really have been frozen in the moment. Nonetheless, even at that speed one can see just how rapidly that water is falling. I think that perhaps you might have over-sharpened this a tad - the water looks good, but the trees look a bit overdone and have a slight halo around them.

I see your are traveling far and wide with this exotic locations bring much to your slendid collections.
Love the win falls crashing on the toplical foliage and stirring the red clay in the stream.
Must have make a wonderful roar.

Lep pogled na vodopad, dve sestre ...
Dobra ostrina i kontrast, lepe boje.
Dobar tekst i kompozicija, lep trenutak.
Lepa priroda i vodopadi.
Prijatno vece i sve najbolje.

Very nice presentation this two sister. I have a few photos of them :) Not sure which of these sister is more beautiful. You were here on a nice day, with beautiful sky and yes, because to wear sun block. I was here when it was cloudy and not as good light as you have here. Good quality photo. Brings back lot of nice memories for me
