The awesome sublime power of Iguazu falls- a humbling masterpiece of nature!
This is La Garganta del Diablo (the Devil's throat) from the Argentine side of the falls at sunrise. Hum the theme to the movie 'The Mission' for added effect...
A one second exposure with a 3 stop GND used to balance the sunrise light with the falls.

This is an amazing picture.
It like it very much, it's really one of your best images. A fantastic composition and an excellent use of a long exposure time.

This is quite a spectacular shot!
The semi-circle of tumbling silk really draws the eyes in!
Thankfully, there is a chance to escape and enjoy the misty spray and the warm evening sunset.

Dramatic photograph! The moving waters, the sun rising up, the orange colour and the POV are fantastic. Good job.

amazing shot, very impressive.
Wonderful sunset with falls in frontplan.
Right choice the long exposure time to give sense of moviment to the water.

The blurred water has good contrast and detail. Great moment of capture with the sun coming up. I can almost feel the warmth from its rays. Great job as usual.

Great composition and lighting. You've made the rush of the water seem soft, it almost looks like a painting.

The landscape on a different planet. A burning mysterious sky in the background, and an "unreal" fall due to the long shutter speed.
Very eye catching

Not queen with the frame (black& grey), but the rest is damn goof Michael.
Excellent light control, excellent pov and composition, very vivid colours and...
thank you for this photo, as I was always looking for a photo made with a Hasselblad Digital camera.

belle photo de cette chute superbe doublée d' un magnifique coucher de soleil.
Belle double prise qui mérite beaucoups plus de point que ce que vous avez, ou est le problème, votre gallerie regorge de jolies photos mais les points n' ont pas l' air de suivre.J' apprécie beaucoups de photos de cette gallerie et ne vous découragez surtout pas.

Another Perfect shot, I've seen images of the fall many times but never so beautiful and colourful. The sunrise sky looks amazing. excellent cropping and top quality image
kiks (11749) 2008-04-27 13:21
Wonderful... this is a very diffrent view from this famous waterfal. I love the softnes of the water and movement on it. The sunrise color is ofcourse sublime!
What is " a 3 stop GND"?
bach37 (193) 2008-05-02 10:27
The colors are amazing and the blur of the water gives that motion sensation... Awesome!
Very well done.

Really nice picture, the effect is great (like on many other pictures of you), that the water looks "fluent" and a bit blurry. really nice. Also the way you composed the image, the colors and your point of view. Really well done!

excellent framing that enhance the power of this stunning falls. Your composition and execution are great.
