This is a picture of the Iguazu' falls, located between the border of Argentina, Paraguay and Brasil. There are an incredible number of Falls that stretch out for more than 2 km.
I think that no words or photos can describe them properly, it's something that someone has to see (and hear) for real.
This version is larger than the original, I increased the contrast, adjusted the levels and increased the saturation

Absolutely lovely, wish I was there. Reminds one of Victoria falls on the Zambezi between Zimbabwe and Zambia. The spray is there, and I am looking for new birds!!

beutifull landscape and very nice shot.i like it
jannes (62) 2003-09-26 8:23
I especially like the colors on the right side of the picture. The bright green in combination with the red earth and the white of the water itself is amasing.
Just a pity there are the black leaves in the upper right corner. They do spoil the view. The plants on the bottem don't in my opinion.
martin (1242) 2003-09-26 8:25
Awesome falls! The composition achieves a nice balance between the nearer and more distant falls.

This really has that WOW factor. Composition, colours, sense of power. Everything works perfectly. The only thing that could improve it in my opinion would be the removal of the branch with 3 leaves sticking out beyond the general foliage on the left hand side. Now that really is being picky!!
This deserves a double smiley !!

I think what you did to the picture add a lot of power. It's marvellous. I maybe prefer it without the leaves at front. I like the colors. Beautiful!
femkevdh (2633) 2003-09-26 10:07
What an impressive place! You managed to capture it very lively, almost 3D! Good framing too.
Motrem (2392) 2003-09-26 10:38
It is so beautiful this decoration! Very beautiful composition and the frame with the foliage brings its effect. Very beautiful colour, this place of country seems magnificent, I would like to spend time there.
C'est tellement beau ce décor! Très belle composition et l'encadrement avec le feuillage apporte son effet. Très belle couleur, ce coin de pays semble merveilleux, j'aimerais y passer un bon temps.
BigTom (38) 2003-09-26 11:59
A beautiful place very well illustrated! Nice composition and color. I would like to see the unenlarged version, which surely, is sharper!
ninadev (5377) 2003-09-26 12:42
Grand scenery that you very well captured. I find that the reddish rocks in the foreground adds to this wonderful shot. I would also increase the sharpness, made a WS.
vkbhaskar (181) 2003-09-26 18:35
Wow what a place.
I think your photo describes well enought the beauty of this place.
gary (109) 2003-09-28 7:46
Some pictures on TE make me go "Wow!". This is one of them. The colours and composition are perfect and the size of the picture (much better than the original, IMHO) conveys the power of the waterfalls. Excellent!
joseelias (0) 2003-09-29 18:30
Very nice point of view and composition! I like the notion of distances created by the near bush against the waterfals.
I've made a Workshop to sharp the image and remove some noise. Take a look.
zorro (530) 2003-09-29 21:26
wow so refreshing nature!good shot very naked.
CoolDan (2516) 2003-10-19 20:48
Très belle composition. Vous avez bien fait d'inclure dans la photo la couleur des rochers ce qui lui redonne encore plus de richesse.
nielsenallan (524) 2003-11-02 7:03
Did you walk out of the jungle ? Nice scene
helen (0) 2003-11-21 7:05
My camera gave up on me the day i was on the argentinian side of the falls - what a nightmare! your photo is stunning. I can feel the power of the water and almost hear them all over again! thanks for the memories!
mdchachi (1617) 2003-11-21 14:33
Beautiful shot. This looks even more amazing then Niagara Falls. I don't know how this was missed for inclusion in the Waterfalls theme but I just added it.
This view on a tripod & at a slightly slower shutter speed would be worth trying as well.
mitternacht (1839) 2003-11-29 10:52
Where does all that water come from, it's falling to the left and to right, everywhere. Amazing shot, really powerful.
lulululu2003 (413) 2003-12-20 5:10
I have been to Iguazu. how come I couldn't take a spectacular shot as yours?
The colour and the composition is perfect.
when visiting this fall, which side did you visit, Argentina, Paraguay or Brasil?
I visited the Argentina side which my friend highly recommened.
Jeppe (18654) 2004-01-19 10:05
Wow - an amazing place and a great capture - thanks for sharing.

Ho! La La qu'elle belle photo. Il ne manque que le son. Je trouve qu'elle pourait être un peu plus clair par contre. J'ai fais un atelier, J'espère que vous aimerez?
desman (2222) 2004-05-21 13:40
Déjà 55 points mais ca les mérite !!!!
Cadrage parfait avec un premier plan qui ne prend pas trop de place, juste là pour l'assise, puis ce canyon de chutes qui donne du relief
AdamBurton (8585) 2004-05-30 10:59
Fantastic place, fantastic composition. Youve caught this shot really well.

Superb shot Andrea - what a location! Colours are strong, especially that rust brown colour on right side. Composition is very good, and image is sharp. Well done!
czar (198) 2005-10-04 5:49
Fantastic photo..Great colors composition, loved how u have the falls in every part of the photo. One can really feel the the intensity of the water and have a sense of the overall sheer power of the falls..Well done!!

Te shot gives the feeling that we are going to be soaked in one second.
I will be there in november and i hope i will be able to take some similar pictures...
Vagabond (5848) 2006-07-30 8:57
Very nice picture. Splendid scenery with good capture of details, colours ... and sounds.
rajhema (1873) 2006-08-02 12:27
Indeed, words sometimes lose value while describing such beauty. Marvelous capture Andrea. But I like the smaller version because it is a bit sharper. This one because of the distance wooden walk way lets the viewers guess the size of the falls.
Benedict (7076) 2006-08-02 12:44
what a beautiful creation of the Almighty!! you captured it perfectly...wow..wow...wow!!

olirey (193) 2006-08-14 22:03
I have seen many disappointing pictures from Igazu. Seem to be difficult to capture the beauty of that place. Here, you achieve a masterpiece. It is so impressive and beautifull.
If only you could have zoomed enought to preserve the quality of the picture, it would have been perfect.
gramma (3519) 2006-08-20 4:58
Très belle composition !
Standa (1877) 2007-02-09 15:04

scotthosner (63) 2007-08-28 10:31
An amazing shot of an amazing place. Sure, I could be picky about the leaves and branches, but they really don't take away from this lovely photo.
Well done, and wow!
Yves-triga (5149) 2009-05-11 3:24
Very wonderfull capture,
this location is very beautifull,
Nature is so pretty.
you did a great job.
Eileen (152) 2009-09-09 4:56
What an incredible sight! I love the POV, colors and framing. It has a 3D look with the brighter falls in the front and the misty falls in the background.I love the frame of leaves at the top which gives it even more depth.Wonderful composition.I was looking at your posting date and appreciate the "featured artist and photographs" so that newer members can find such wonderful participants. Your work is excellent. Eileen
ruisc_pt (11090) 2010-08-11 8:23

MichaelTrezzi (3368) 2011-03-11 23:24
